About Me

We are FEC – Faith and Cooperation Foundation. We are a nongovernmental organisation for development, created in 1990 by the Catholic Church in Portugal, in a close dialogue with the Churches of Portuguese-speaking countries.

Our mission is to Promote Integral Human Development with a vision of building a society where each and every person may live with dignity and justice.

Based on solid values and principles, with a team of committed professionals and working in partnership in several countries and sectors, we carry out sustainable projects, which have transforming results and a positive impact for populations.

The following values and principles guide our work:

  • Dignity – We believe in the intrinsic dignity of each and every person, regardless of their gender, ethnic origin, religious or political beliefs, or social status.
  • Social Justice – We believe that goods and resources should be shared, and that basic needs of every single person should be met.
  • Participation – We believe that each person should be a protagonist of change.
  • Global Citizenship – We believe that growing co-responsibility among citizens is necessary, which amounts to solidarity, social mobilisation and sustainable lifestyles.
  • Partnerships & Networks – We believe that only through joint work in partnership and in networks can we embark on a journey towards sustainable development.
  • Sustainability - We believe that environmental, social and economic responsibility is indispensable to ensure a common future.
  • Professionalism & Transparency – We believe that serving the most vulnerable people requires both professionalism and transparency

Strategic priorities for social transformation:

  • Education, Knowledge & Skills. Our goal: Skilled people
  • Good Governance and Advocacy. Our goals: Efficient organisations for Social Justice, Advocacy initiatives for Social Justice
  • Global Citizenship & Human Rights. Our goal: People mobilisation for Global Citizenship and Human Rights

We believe that only in a joint effort and in dialogue can we follow the path towards effective sustainable development. Thus, we establish partnerships based on dialogue, equity and co-responsibility. We believe that partnership does not mean resource management but effective joint effort for attaining common goals that can achieve transformation and social justice.
