Erikshjälpen changes the world by making children’s dreams come true.
Erikshjälpen works in 27 countries worldwide in cooperation with local partner organisations. It builds its activities on the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, the Millennium Development Goals, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and on Christian values. The main strategies for Erikshjälpen’s programmes are access to education, family and community empowerment, gender equality, local resource mobilisation and strengthening civil society.
To change the world by making children’s dreams come true. It can be the dream about being able to go to school, the dream that mum will find work or the dream that dad will stop being so sick.
That children and families who live in isolation and poverty can influence, develop and improve the society in which they live.
