The morning tears alliance has full members and associated members.
Full members are legally recognized non-profit organisations in their respective countries. These organisations are named morning tears, e.g. "morning tears Spain". Full members adhere to the morning tears charter and they provide programs to the associate members.
Associate members are managed by or receive support (technical and/or financial) from one of the full members. Associate members can be supporting or referring centres, e.g. a centre for prevention of child abuse.
A basic requirement to become and stay an associate member is that they cooperate in full members' capacity building activities.
