Since 2001 about 8200 FK Norway’s participants have taken part in exchange between Norway and countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America. The exchange may also take place between developing countries.
FK Norway gives young people in Norway and developing countries the opportunity to experience each other's reality. We are convinced that the world becomes a little more just when people get to know each other better and create values together.
About 200 organisations and institutions exchange young people in collaboration with us. Physiotherapists, engineers, journalists, designers and young activists are examples of people who swap places across national frontiers. Through working with each other the organisations share knowledge and experiences. A collaboration with FK Norway expands perspectives and changes attitudes.
FK Norway is a part of the national developmental policy. FK Norway was established in 1963 to send people from Norway, and was reorganised in 2000 to do mutual exchange. The Norwegian Parliament allocates funds in the national budget every year so that we can do our job. Our task is to facilitate mutual learning and development of institutions and local communities. We give financial support to organisations and companies that wish to exchange staff with another organisation.
We make the world smaller.
