People first

We are committed to enabling people to get a better life. The individual person is always the focus of our work. Here you will meet some people involved in Swedish development assistance. Let them explain how their situation has changed.


International Training Programmes

As part of Sida's work with capacity and institutional development Sida offers international training programmes (ITP) for participants from low-and middle-income countries in priority areas. ITP's methodology takes account of the desire to develop and reform that the participants' organization have expressed in their application to the program.
