    AMU – Cooperação e Solidariedade por um Mundo Unido (Lusophone Cooperation and Solidarity for a United World) is a private, non-profit association created in 1994 in Lisbon. Its aim is to promote the right for every people to fully express their individuality within the diversity of peoples and to participate with their unique contribution through the mutual knowledge and sharing of their spiritual, cultural and material resources. 

    AMU is based on the following principle: «To love the other person’s homeland as our own». We thus strive to address issues on the relations among peoples and ethnic groups, which will contribute to create a more united world.

  • Origin in relations
    2014-02-13

    The issues of immigration and development in the immigrants’ home countries are two sides of the same coin. From that perspective, AMU started to work in the areas of Reception and Integration, mostly of immigrants from Portuguese-speaking countries, as well as of Development Cooperation, through humanitarian aid operations and the implementation of projects in those countries. 

    The core idea of AMU consisted in relying on the relation created in the area of the reception of immigrants, in order to identify the most viable ideas of cooperation projects to be implemented for the development of their countries as well as to provide the appropriate people with the means and necessary training to carry out those projects.
