Our development cooperation projects focus mainly on strengthening and improving the operations and functions of our local partner organizations. We encourage and train our partners in advocacy work so that the human rights of people with disabilities are realized as widely as possible in society.
Our long-term partnerships with local disability organizations are based on mutual trust. We respect the independence of our partners, and we give space and time for peer support and learning in the projects.
Development cooperation projects are implemented by our member organizations, i.e. Finnish organizations of persons with disabilities, and the main part of the funding for our development cooperation programme comes from the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland.
