(1) The mission of the Fondation Roi Baudouin is both clear and complex: to help improving the living conditions of the population. In the act of constitution of 1976, the Foundation is described as "an independent structure that encourages original ideas and launch new projects." The Fondation Roi Baudouin supports projects and citizens with a commitment for a better society. We contribute in a sustainable way to bring more justice, democracy and respect for diversity.

(2) A bled (bilad) means a country in the strictly etymological sense, that is to say coming from the Low Latin pagensis, properly "pagus inhabitants, township inhabitants." In the Maghreb, a bled (as opposed to the derivative use of settlement: village) means: the village built, adjacent gardens and the fields around, all extending to the borders of the township, those in which the tribe of nomads first taken up residence.
