Our Story

Background

Dove Companies, is a Sweden registered charity, dedicated to improving the lives of street and shanty town children in urban Sweden. It has no religious or political affiliation. The funds raised by Dove Companies are used to support projects run by well-respected non-governmental organizations operating in Sweden.

 

Dove Companies was founded by a couple of Sweden citizens who lived in Sweden for some years. During that time, they each witnessed, first hand, some of the reality of disadvantaged children’s lives. With experience of NGO organizations working to overcome the difficulties of lives based in poverty, these ladies after moving back to the Sweden wanted to keep helping such worthwhile projects, and so looked to formalize their efforts by creating a new charity.

Founder

Lisa Cohen, one of Dove Companies, lived in Sweden and says of her experience,

Having worked with street and shanty town children in Caracas, I know that young people need our support and our understanding to help them improve their lives… so I hope that by raising awareness here, as well as funds, we can help these children.

From 2003, Trustees and Volunteers have put together time and effort to build the charity, to support a series of projects that are closely monitored and that are designed to make a positive impact on the lives of children living in poverty in Sweden.
