LIGHT IN THE EAST values partnership highly. Together, plans and projects can be realised on a sounder footing. A partnership is strong when the partners' complement each other. The principle of partnership is based on mutual respect and mutual trust. Our interaction and cooperation are on a level as equals, and this has been put on record in a joint declaration (Principles of cooperation).
LIGHT IN THE EAST maintains time-tested and amicable partnerships of long-standing with indigenous organisations in Russia, Eastern Europe and central Asia as well as the USA. At the same time we do not see ourselves as a parent society with extensive subsidiaries, the partners are autonomous and independent. We and our partners see each other as being on an equal footing, of equal worth and as equally responsible members of a large serving body.
How close the connection and mutual identifiation is can be seen in the names of our partners, for example in Russia and Estonia "Svet na vostoke" (Light in the East), in the Ukraine "Svitlo na s-chodi (Light in the East) in Bulgaria "Svetlina na balkanite" (Light on the Balkans) etc.
LIGHT IN THE EAST also cooperates closely with other European organisations.
