Diakonia has about 400 partner organisations in 30 countries. Here you can read about the general direction of our work in different countries and regions. In this section you will also find lists of our partners.
Local partners implement
Diakonia does not implement projects on its own, but instead cooperates with and supports local organizations.
We often give institutional support, instead of support directed to isolated projects. Our programmes for different countries depend on their present situation. Our work is a long-term commitment and our goal is a lasting change for the most oppressed, vulnerable or exposed people.
Regional and local offices
Diakonia has a number of regional offices. They are responsible for the overall work and decisions about the activities in the regions.
In the regional office there is a manager, executive officers and staff responsible for defined programmes. Their task is to closely follow and support our programmes and partners and also to work with monitoring, evaluations and reports of results. This work is carried out in close cooperation with the staff at our local offices and our partner organizations.
