Diakonia is a Swedish organisation for international development co-operation. We support more than 400 partner organisations in about 30 countries.Together with our partners we form a global network, working towards more people living a life in dignity.
Diakonia's goal is a fair and sustainable development in which living standards for the most vulnerable people are improved, and democracy, human rights and gender equality are respected. The starting point for this is the gospel with Jesus as the role model and, based on this, our policy.
Diakonia does not carry out any projects of its own, but supports local partners. As these organisations are already present and well established, the long term development work becomes more effective.
Diakonia's strength is our partner organisations. They work tirelessly according to their beliefs, through actions for a worthy future.
Vision
Everywhere on earth where there is poverty, injustice or violence there are people working for change. Diakonia's vision is that all people should live a satisfactory life and have the opportunity to exercise their civil and political rights, including secured livelihood, a peaceful living environment and knowledge to influence their situation.
 
Five themes are the basis of our policy
Our global work is divided into five themes, which together form the basis of our policy:

Socio-Economic Justice
Human Rights
Gender Equality
Conflict and Justice
Emergency Response and Disaster Resilience
