Alliance2015

Alliance2015 is a strategic partnership of seven European non-governmental organisations engaged in humanitarian and development activities. Alliance2015 members are ACTED/France, Cesvi/Italy, Concern Worldwide/Ireland, HELVETAS Swiss Intercooperation/Switzerland, Hivos/The Netherlands, People in Need/Czech Republic and Welthungerhilfe/Germany.

We aim to fight poverty more effectively by cooperating on various levels, working together in developing countries as well as on campaigns to influence public and political opinion in Europe. By joining forces, we can meet the challenges and changing demands of donors. Established to strengthen its members' contribution to the Millennium Development Goals, Alliance2015 intends to keep this commitment towards the new Sustainable Development Goals.

Working in the 'Global South' and in Europe

In Asia, collaboration in emergencies has forged particularly strong links among the partners, especially after the 2010 floods in Pakistan.
In Africa, the partnership has a strong focus on education in Sierra Leone, Liberia and Uganda. In 2011, members cooperated to deliver emergency aid to the Horn of Africa. 
Latin America was the first continent where Alliance2015 members (Hivos and former member IBIS) successfully implemented joint projects as Global Fund recipients. From 2010 to 2013, all Alliance2015 members present in Nicaragua shared the first Alliance2015 Office in Managua.

In Europe, Alliance2015 has been successfully campaigning and focusing on advocacy work, for example with the EU-funded Stop Child Labour campaign that ran from 2003 to 2013 (now continued by Hivos). From mid-2012 to mid-2015, five Alliance2015 members ran the Food Right Now campaign, funded by the EU and addressing a young audience in Europe. In January 2013, a large advocacy programme on a structured dialogue between NGOs and the EU on MDGs 1 and 2 started with all members on board.
