It is the umbrella organisation for nearly 300 development organisations or other NGOs working on issues concerning development and globalisation. KEPA itself is a politically and ideologically non-aligned organisation that operates with funding from the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland.
Over 300 other partners are involved in the festival – some 200 NGOs as well as educational institutions, museums, public authorities and businesses.
