Diakonia's change makers

We work to ensure that all people have their rights respected.


People living in poverty and oppression know the roots of their problems, and that they are the ones most fit to find a solution to the problems. That's why Diakonia works with local, well established organizations. We work in around 30 different countries and have several hundred local partner organizations.

Together we constitute a worldwide network of millions of people who strive for sustainable change for those living in poverty, under oppression and violence. A network of people who are changing the world.
