Mission is collaboration
Mission is carried out in collaboration with local churches, communities and people. In practice, our aim is to provide support and expertise to enable locals to do missionary work.
Finnish missionaries and aid workers support and train locals and undertake duties they have expertise in. Our aim is to enable locals to continue the work independently in order to achieve lasting results.
An integral part of Christianism is spreading the good. This involves having faith in our being able to alleviate the distress and need of those who have less than we do. By working together, we can do more.
“No church is so poor that it cannot give to others. And no church is so rich that it cannot learn from others.” (Bishop Josiah Kibira, 1925–1988, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Tanzania)
