Fian International Charity Profile
FIAN is an international membership based organisation. FIAN's institutional members are its national and regional sections which are legal entities in their own right and have their own membership and elected decision-making bodies.
The sections are first formed as co-ordinating groups in a country or region. At the local level, members of FIAN form groups mainly run by volunteers.
FIAN has some 45 active local groups world-wide. Total membership of FIAN currently stands at around 3,600 in more than 50 countries.
The overall mission, vision and the strategy of FIAN is defined and revised by the International Council (IC), and represented by delegates of the sections who meet once in two years. The IC elects the International Executive Committee (IEC), which is headed by the president, Ms Sigrun Skogly, and supervises the implementation of FIANís strategic plans. The IEC meets bi-annually to review and strategize FIAN programs, methods and budgets. The operative working unit being in charge of the execution of FIANís programs is its International Secretariat (IS) located in Heidelberg (Germany), and coordinated by the Secretary General, Flavio Valente.
Fian International Volunteer Information
Each FIAN section and co-ordination retains its own recruitment strategy and policy; please check directly with the respective Section or Co-ordination for internship or volunteer vacancies. The duration of an internship at the FIAN International Secretariat in Heidelberg, Germany, can vary between 3 and 6 months. Unfortunately no monetary compensation is given to interns. Volunteers work on a more long-term basis. Working-hours are extremely flexible and depend on the amount of time a volunteer can and would like to invest in working for FIAN International Secretariat.

Only with adequate funds can we effectively fight for the human right to food. Support FIAN with a one-off or a regular donation, since our independence enables us to fight abuses of the human right to food effectively.
