Business Trainers And Coaches At Finn Church Aid


Finn Church Aid (FCA) is the largest Finnish international aid organization. We operate in 13 countries, where the needs are most dire. We work with the poorest people, regardless of their religious beliefs, ethnic background, or political convictions. Our work is based on rights, which means that our operations are guided by equality, non-discrimination, and responsibility.

We contribute to positive change by supporting people in the most vulnerable situations within fragile and disaster-affected areas. We consider three thematic areas as central to sustainable change: the right to peace (R2P), the right to livelihood (R2L) and the right to quality education (R2QE). In Kenya, FCA has been working since 2014 in all three thematic areas, supporting local communities and governments to resolve and prevent conflicts, providing access to inclusive primary education and livelihood interventions. FCA work is spread across Nairobi, Turkana- Kakuma Kalobeyei refugee camp, Garissa, Marsabit, Baringo, Elgeyo Marakwet, West Pokot and Samburu Counties.
