Nordic Donors


Over the years, World Vision has partnered with the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA), the Danish International Development Agency (DANIDA), the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (NORAD), and the Finnish International Development Agency (FINNIDA).

Together we have supported a range of life-changing work in a range of countries.

Nordic donor-funded programmes in Kenya have included helping families harvest and sell honey; have provided solar lamps so children can study; and have helped improve children’s health by providing energy-saving and environmentally friendly cookstoves. In Rwanda, SIDA has been instrumental in helping women and youth in Rwanda whose family’s primary income is from farming, increase their income in other ways.

We are excited to work with these donors and look forward to further collaboration in the years to come.
