Partos is the trade association for development cooperation and unites more than 100 Dutch development organisations.
In mutual trust, Partos connects, strengthens, innovates and represents its members for impactful development cooperation. The goal of this cooperation is an inclusive, peaceful, just and sustainable society for all, with a focus on the poorest and most vulnerable groups and territories worldwide. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) form a comprehensive thread in this regard.
The founding year of Partos
It is 2004. More than 60 civil society organisations in the Netherlands want to have a strong voice together towards the government and other parties. They unite in Partos. And now, for almost 20 years, the trade association has been championing the interests of CSOs in the Netherlands.
Starting with 60 members, Partos now represents 108 development organisations to form a voice together. They know that Together Works.
Where Partos represents 108 organisations, they in turn, represent a constituency of 4 million people!
