Organization History



Swedish Peace Agency(SPA) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting a culture of peace by organising international voluntary projects for people of all ages and backgrounds. Founded on September 20. The organisation consists of 3 branches.

Throughout the years SPA has made a major contribution to the development of the main forms of volunteering. Year after year, the organisation enables thousands of volunteers to participate in community projects.

We believe that living and working together with people of different backgrounds helps volunteers to break down barriers and prejudices. It allows them to experience a world of mutual respect and understanding. In this sense, volunteering can be seen as a way of life, a demonstration of the possible reality of a peaceful and cooperative world.

Swedish Peace Agency works to prevent, mitigate, and resolve violent conflict around the world. SPA does this by engaging directly in conflict zones and by providing analysis, education, and resources to those working for peace. working to ensure that all development finance institutions respect human rights. We strive to bring more coordination to a global movement led by communities and supported by civil society organizations.
