About Us

Norwegian People’s Aid is a politically independent membership-based organisation working in Norway and in more than 30 countries around the world. Founded in 1939 as the labour movement’s humanitarian solidarity organisation. 

NPA aims to improve people’s living conditions and to create a democratic, just and safe society. NPA’s international work covers three core areas: Mine Action and disarmament, Development and Humanitarian relief aid.

NPA has been working in Iraq and Kurdistan Region of Iraq since 1995, when the Humanitarian Disarmament (NPA HD) department established a mine action programme from between 1995 and 2009 and the International Programme Department (NPA IPD) was focusing it activities on reconstruction and rehabilitation. Since 2001, NPA has refocused its emphasis towards the human rights. NPA is registered both in federal government of Iraq in Baghdad and Kurdistan Regional Government in Erbil with NPA IPD supporting projects with local partner organizations throughout Iraq.
