We Effect, Sweden
We Effect is a development cooperation organisation that has worked with a long-term approach since 1958. We Effect’s goal is a just world free of poverty. Help to self-help is our guiding principle in 24 countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America and Europe. Our areas of focus are sustainable rural development and adequate housing with a strong emphasis on gender equality. Collaboration with local member-based organisations is fundamental to our work, ensuring that it is based on the interests and priorities of their members. Together with our partner organisations around the world we work to give women increased ownership/control of land.
The founders and present member organisations of We Effect are national federations representing all major cooperatives in Sweden and the sectors where cooperatives play a central role in Swedish society and economy.

Almost all cooperatives within Swedish agriculture and forestry are also members. LRF, and its seven subsidiaries, promote development of the green industry and its farmers of agricultural and forest land, growers and entrepreneurs so that they can fulfill their vision of growth, profitability and power of attraction. LRF seeks to create the appropriate conditions for sustainable and competitive companies and to develop a favorable base for social life and enterprise in rural areas.
