For a just world.
Jesse Pasanen / Kepa


Kepa is an NGO platform and an expert on global development. We represent more than 300 Finnish civil society organisations and promote action aiming to build a just world.

Kepa was founded in 1985 by 56 Finnish NGO's. During its three decades of existence Kepa has transformed into a strong platform for Finnish civil society organizations and an expert on global development issues. Read more about us at Kepa in a nutshell.

In Finland our work can be roughly divided into three different areas which are advocacy work, capacity building and global education and awareness raising. NGO's working in Finland can apply to become Kepa's members with several membership benefits.
