Thank you for your understanding.

The Lutheran Foundation of Diakonia (FLD) is a civil society organization, created by the Evangelical Church of the Lutheran Confession in Brazil (IECLB), which operates through support and monitoring of groups projects, networks, forums, and organized movements and through the direct execution of projects and programs in the areas of Economic Justice, Environmental Justice, Rights, Diakonia, and Humanitarian Aid. Its headquarters is located in Porto Alegre, State of Rio Grande do Sul, in Southern Brazil, and it operates throughout the Brazilian territory.
By means of three programs—PPP (Small Projects Program), which supports small projects; COMIN (Council of Mission among Indigenous Peoples), in the field of indigenous rights; and CAPA (Center for Support and Promotion of Agroecology), in the field of agroecology and family agriculture—the FLD works with groups of women, indigenous peoples, quilombola communities, farmers and family farmers, settled families of agrarian reform, women and men waste pickers of recyclable materials, rural and urban youth, children and adolescents, the LGBT community, religious communities, fishers and artisanal fishers, and other traditional communities and peoples. Among another public with whom the FLD works closely are the Lutheran communities and the diaconal institutions, linked to the IECLB.
The Gender Justice Policy, Environmental Justice Policy, and the Democratic Management guide our actions.
Together with the Synodal Network of Education and the schools affiliated to this network the FLD develops the project Education for Solidarity and Peace in Brazil.
