Association Intercooperation Madagascar (AIM) is a non-profit, non-governmental organization which directs the implementation of development programs and projects in Madagascar. The mission of the AIM is to act in a collective manner to contribute to rural and urban development, thus reducing poverty and improving the populations living conditions. AIM works in six main fields: food security, natural resource management, community health, local economy, and governance. The Association promotes transparency in all interactions between the public and private sectors, equitable development, and innovation. AIM works with the "pro-poor" approach, which is sensitive to gender and gives priority to the vulnerable strata.
