Within the United States, we represent Finn Church Aid − Finland’s largest international aid organization.
We are committed to ensuring all people − regardless of religion, ethnic background, or political conviction − can exercise their right to quality education, right to livelihoods, and right to peace.
Focus on Education
FCA's 71 years of experience indicate that access to quality education is a prerequisite for enhanced livelihoods that contribute to social cohesion and conflict reduction.
Building on the successes of the Finnish education system, FCA works with all levels of society to strengthen and develop better education systems, provide educational pathways throughout humanitarian emergencies, and link what students are learning in the classroom to future employment.
FCA supports the humanitarian activities of its local partner in Hassakeh, where an estimated 100,000 internally-displaced people have been housed in schools, public buildings and with host families. FCA is providing winter supplies, such as blankets, tarps, hygienic kits and water tanks.
