Oikos – Cooperação e Desenvolvimento (Cooperation and Development) is a Portuguese non-governmental organisation whose goal is worldwide development.

We believe, first and foremost, in a world where there is no poverty and no injustice, and where human development can be equitable and sustainable on a local and global scale.
From Emergencies to Development, Education, Social Mobilisation and Public Influence, Oikos’s work currently encompasses many countries.
Our activity is structured as a continuum in the areas of emergencies/humanitarian action, development/sustainable life and mobilisation/global citizenship.
