Afrikable, declared as Public Interest Organization Featured

We start the week with an announcement that makes us feel very proud and full of joy, as someone might say ;) … Afrikable has been recognized by the Ministry of Interior as a Public Interest Organization!

We are going to explain what it means, what implies to be a Public Interest Organization, and its benefits.


The Public Interest Statement is an official recognition given by the Minister of Interior for the important social work of the organization. It is a stamp that gives prestige to our entity and shows our efficiency, transparency and good practices to the society. It is a guarantee to our partners, donors and collaborators.

In order to obtain this title, it is necessary to fulfill certain requirements established by the Ley Orgánica 1/2002 of March 22nd, from the Derecho de Asociación:

  • The statutory purposes must promote general interest.
  • Its activity must not be restrained exclusively to benefit its associates.
  • The representative members that perceive payment must not be from funds or public grants.
  • They must have personal means, adequate materials and appropriate organization to ensure the statutory purposes.
  • It must be constituted and enrolled in the Register, to be running and implementing its statutory purposes continuously and concurring all previous requirement, for at least two years prior to the submission of the application.


Benefits to our partners and donors.

To be part of a Public Interest Association makes its partners and donors feel proud, since they have the State guarantee that their contributions go to a solvent entity that works for the common good.

This honor guarantees that we are achieving our statutory purposes to promote the empowerment of women, the fair trade, the nutrition and education for kids in the island, the respect for the environment, and that the entity is solvent and develops the project.

There are also certain tax benefits, which our partners and donors were already benefiting from and will still do because from 2010 Afrikable is registered as a Development NGO in the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation (AECID).
