ORGANISATIONAL PARTNERS IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES 

In the Foundation’s international activities, our local partner organisations are responsible for implementing the activities on site. For this reason, it is important for the local organisations to have sufficient capacity and expertise, and to make sure they are reliable operators. In our cooperation, we aim for close, long-term activities. Partnership means true cooperation: from content planning to monitoring and evaluation, as well as facing and solving common challenges. Our main partners are organisations that are part of the IYF network.
