DanChurchAid’s aim is to strengthen the world’s poorest people in their struggle for a life in dignity. DanChurchAid is rooted in the Danish National Evangelical Lutheran Church, but is active wherever we find the need is highest, regardless of religion, gender, political beliefs, race, national or ethnic origins, handicaps or sexual orientation. We cooperate with numerous local partners, other national and church organisations as well as international networks. We are a part of the ACT Alliance (Action by Churches Together) – an alliance that consists of more than 100 churches and humanitarian organisations across the world. Together, we make up one of the world’s five largest NGOs.
ACT Alliance works with development, humanitarian assistance and advocacy in more than 120 countries.
DanChurchAid is an independent organisation. Our work is financed via fundraising campaigns, contributions from individuals, companies and funds from the Danish government (Danida), the UN, EU and other bilateral donors.
