The FELM Development Cooperation Programme is a six-year program (2011-2016), divided into two three-year budget periods. During this financing period FELM will implement the second half of the program, during the years 2014-2016. FELM signed the partnership agreement with the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland in 2007. The program advances women and girl’s empowerment, the rights of the disabled, persons living with hiv and aids other marginalized groups of people as well as sustainable development. This includes strengthening inter alia food security, gender equality, education, environmental awareness and adaptation to climate change. In the implementation multiple strategies are used, such as training the local partners and beneficiaries/rights-holders, improving the quality of project management and implementation, raising awareness, strengthening networks, advocacy, financial and material support. Every year, FELM reaches about one-and-a-half million disadvantaged persons. The program, implemented through partner organizations, is divided into project work and disability projects under a separate disability sub-program. Moreover, implementation includes emergency work, advocacy, technical support/experts and development communication and global education. All operations are guided by the principles of the rights-based approach, non-discrimination and transparency.
