Joint Efforts For Sustainable Development

Partnership with the local government: LWF has built strong and effective ties with local government authorities and this collaborative approach ensures government support, boosts the capacity of government structures, and aids sustainability.

Partnership with LWF Related Agencies and other donors: LWF  continues to receive strong support from the LWF Related Agencies . They are the donors providing the basket funds for its community-driven holistic projects – and they support a range of other development projects in addition to donations for emergency response through the ACT Alliance.

Collaboration with other partners: In our  Emergency Response activities in Adjumani, Moyo, Lamwo and Kamwenge , we collaborate with a variety of other partners such as  UNHCR, UNICEF, EU Humanitarian Aid, among others.


In the European Commission, the Directorate General for humanitarian aid (ECHO) manages humanitarian aid financed by the community budget. The main objective of this aid is to save and preserve lives in emergency and immediate post emergency situations and during natural catastrophes and conflict.

As a donor, ECHO does not implement projects directly in the field but gives support to partner organisations specialised in humanitarian aid. These operational partners include: United Nations humanitarian agencies, the Red Cross/Red Crescent movement, Lutheran World Federationand non-governmental organisations that have signed a partnership agreement with the Commission.
