Jonaliese, Sauda and Daphe found a direction for their lives at FCA´s vocational school in Uganda. Thanks to their exceptional motivation, the young graduates from FCA´s school face no difficulties in finding work.

If someone had asked 20-year-old Jonaliese Karsugho where she will be in five years’ time, she would have hardly thought that she would be instructing a final project in metalwork at a Ugandan refugee settlement.

In Athens, it is easy to forget that there is still a great number of people in the city who have come there to escape war or poverty. Watching the good-spirited crowds of the Plaka quarter or the tourists lining up to Acropolis, it does not immediately occur to you that since 2015, over a million refugees have arrived in the country.

Donors’ and international investors’ trust in FCA remained strong in 2017.

Finn Church Aid (FCA) spent 38.6 million euros on aid work last year, an increase of 7.5 million from the previous year. The growth in operations was enabled by the increase in international funding and private donations. The effects of the cuts to development cooperation funding by the Finnish government were still felt in 2017, and operations in Haiti had to be discontinued.
