What we do

The work is conducted mostly through development projects directed towards children, young men and women in cooperation with other development organizations around the world. Mid Sweden Aid is intentionally cooperating with local partners from the civil society to empower them to shape a better future for their own people.

General remarks

Here we present some general remarks regarding the foundation of our work.

In Mid Sweden Aid, we uphold and follow a very old and strong Swedish tradition of working with development projects in Africa, Middle East, South America and Asia. 

The people involved in Mid Sweden Aid have a long tradition of working with different sources for funds, mostly Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA) and Eriks Development Partner (Erikshjälpen). The overwhelming majority of the projects connected to Mid Sweden Aid during the last years have been funded by funds from the two sources mentioned above. 

Mid Sweden Aid always strive to work with local organizations in the different developments projects, and a general goal is to make the local partner as independent as possible as soon as possible. Our partnerships around the world should have the hallmarks of respect, equality and trust. Mid Sweden Aid is reaching our with a helping hand, with the overall goal to help local people to help themselves.​
