About us

Finn Church Aid – Action for Human Dignity

Finn Church Aid (FCA) is the largest Finnish NGO in international aid. We operate in 14 countries, where the needs are most dire. We work with the poorest people, regardless of their religious beliefs, ethnic background or political convictions.

Our work is based on rights, which means that our operations are guided by equality, non-discrimination and responsibility.

Aiming for permanent change

Permanent change in developing countries can only be achieved through persistent cooperation with local communities and people. Finn Church Aid is committed to working until the people in need can independently secure their livelihood and satisfy their basic needs.

For human rights, against poverty

The reduction of poverty requires achieving peace and the realisation of human rights. Through our projects, we work to ensure both. We encourage decision-makers and all Finns to address structures that induce poverty, violence and human rights violations.
