Oikos’ work in Portugal essentially revolves around three major themes related to Global Citizenship: “Education for Global Citizenship”; partnerships to promote the “Common good”; and “Public Influence”.


The primary goal of the projects being undertaken is to eradicate poverty and reduce economic asymmetry and the inequality of knowledge, since these are more than sufficient reasons, in our opinion, to mobilise every citizen. Thus, Oikos believes that the individual and collective effort to achieve a social order which contributes to the elimination of poverty, exclusion and social inequality should focus on the sphere of active citizenship.

In 2001 Oikos stationed permanent personnel in the country (their action currently also encompasses Ecuador) to implement projects involving humanitarian action, disaster prevention and preparedness and sustainable living.

From 1994 to 1996, Oikos worked in partnership with local organisations in Honduras, especially in the Garífona community (people of African descent). In 1998, a permanent presence was established in the country to implement a number of humanitarian projects in response to Hurricane Mitch, and which continues to promote improved living conditions, in particular of the rural and indigenous populations, to this very day.

Oikos has had personnel stationed permanently in Guatemala since 2006. This is one of the poorest countries in Latin America, where the chronic malnutrition, inequality and exclusion levels of the indigenous peoples generate dramatic consequences in terms of food safety.

Oikos’ work has primarily targeted this area, seeking to strengthen sustainable, equitable rural food systems.

Oikos has been working in El Salvador since 2001.

Playing an important role, especially in respect of disaster prevention and preparedness, Oikos’ projects in the country currently also reflect a growing concern with the young people in terms of their integration in society and the labour market.
