Focus on child rights

Fida in global development

Fida is a Finnish faith-based development and humanitarian organisation, belonging to the Finnish Pentecostal Church. We have a long-standing record as a Finnish civil society organisation in global development.

Fida’s official development work started in 1974. Our programme currently reaches 16 countries.

We are working to improve the rights of vulnerable children. Our projects impact the lives of over three million people each year. Our development cooperation and humanitarian aid stems from Christian values. We cooperate with churches and NGOs, supporting our partners to work for the benefit of their own communities.

The operational framework of our global programme is guided by the Sustainable Development Goals (Agenda 2030), Finnish Government Development Policy, Programme Support for Civil Society Organisations guidelines, EU development policy and operational countries’ Poverty Reduction Strategies.

Thank you for creating hope and a better future with us!
