SASK is a development cooperation organization focused on workers’ rights. The most sustainable way to reduce poverty and inequality is dignified work that pays enough for a living. The work must be safe and it should be enough to provide for a family.
The best way to control working conditions in a workplace is a functioning, independent labour union. SASK supports labour unions in developing countries so that they can advance the conditions and positions of workers in their own countries. A strengthened labour movement has the capability to influence society on a wider scale, for example by improving work legislation and social security and through that further social stability.
SASK operates in 10 main countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America and also affect the national development policy by furthering the discussion about the rights of the workers all over the world. At the moment, there are dozens of active development cooperation projects.
