How we work with Development Cooperation
We cooperate with organizations that mobilize for democratization and equitable distribution of resource
We contribute to strengthening partner organization's opportunity and ability to influence government and decision-makers
We are working to reduce the difference between rich and poor and between men and women
How we work with Humanitarian Aid
We shall primarily support the local civil society’s crisis management.
We shall work to ensure local participation in planning, coordination, implementation and evaluation of the relief efforts. All humanitarian response must encompass both women and men and take their different needs into consideration.
When choosing partners for crisis relief efforts, we are to focus on actors that may also contribute to changes after the emergency relief phase.
