About International Aid Services (IAS)

A catalyst for development

International Aid Services (IAS) is an International Non-Governmental Organization (INGO) abiding by Christian values. Our vision is to see a ‘godly transformed society’ and the mission is ‘to save lives, promote self-reliance and dignity through human transformation, going beyond relief and development’. Founded in 1989 with the purpose of assisting conflict affected populations in South Sudan we now run programs in over 10 countries in primarily Horn of Africa /Eastern Africa (our programme countries) supported by 4 offices in Europe and the United States (4 members forming the IAS Alliance). The Alliance Head Office is located in Stockholm, Sweden.

Historically IAS has been regarded mainly as a humanitarian actor. However, through the years and with the expansion of the organization into new thematic and geographical areas it is presently engaged in the full development spectrum ranging from emergency relief to long term development. Often these programs can run simultaneously in any given region; particularly in complex and/or protracted conflicts and fragile situations which tend to be the nature of most contexts where IAS is operating.

We see ourselves as catalysts for development. Investing in people in order for them realize their full potential – going beyond relief and development.
