Our rural development expertise includes work in rural areas of Africa, in South East Asia, in Asia, in Latin America, in the Artic and in Europe.
We also facilitate micro-finance for helping poor people to improve livelihood or develop small businesses.

In all activities we focus on peoples’ active participation, such as learning through participatory action research. We also support development of viable, accountable organizations of and for rural people.
