90-accounts guarantee correct handling of gifts

We have Swedish 90-accounts and are a member of the Swedish Fundraising Council (FRII). Our accounting is supervised by Svensk Insamlingskontroll (the Swedish Foundation for Fundraising Control). These measures guarantee that your donation is handled correctly, and used for its intended purpose. Sida, the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency, is the main sponsor of our international work. Gifts from private sources enable us to work with issues for which we cannot receive state funding. If you want to know more about our financials read our annual reports.

Thank you for your support! You make a difference!
