DanChurchAid is based in Denmark and a member of the ACT Alliance together with 134 churches and faith-based organisations. DanChurchAid assisted 3,2 million people through humanitarian and development activities in 19 countries during 2019

Organisation activities

All international programmes and projects in DCA are developed to achieve Quality Assurance, Partnerships and Innovation. Projects and programmes are implemented within one of four thematic priorities: Active Citizenship, Right to Food, Humanitarian Action, and Safer Communities. All of our work is done with a Gender Equality and Human Rights commitment. We work in partnerships and highly prioritise support to local civil society organisations. This ensures that our emergency and development work effectively targets the poorest and that activities become locally sustainable. We have a particular interest in Religion and Development and supporting faith-based actors, but also work with many secular organisations.
