IM is a Swedish development cooperation organisation working to achieve a world free from poverty and exclusion.
We are working in the following areas:

Social inclusion

All individuals should have the right to be an equal member of society, with the same human rights regardless of gender, disabilities and social status.

Economic inclusion

Civil society and civic space

The civil society plays an important part in a democratic society. It represents and defends marginalized groups while raising awareness.

Humanium Metal by IM

Humanium Metal is transforming illegal seized firearms from governmental weapons destruction programmes in regions affected by armed violence into non-lethal commodities for peace.
