Five main themes for our development work
In the work that Diakonia carries out together with local partners we have five common themes:
Advocacy in Sweden
Diakonia has its base in Sweden. It is thanks to our donors there that we can carry out our work in the rest of the world. In Sweden we work with popular education, mobilization and advocacy. We want to create awareness and also influence defined groups in society, so that they can act for a just world.
The head office in Sweden also works with fundraising and coordination and developing methods for our our global development work.
