how we work

ATOS’ work is carried out in close collaboration with local partners. We have long-term projects with CWISH in Nepal and IFSO in Ethiopia. We plan to establish more partnerships in Denmark and other parts of the world.


Social work is the focal point of our interventions. Together with our local partners we develop, test and document methods in social work so that we can identify the best alternatives to separation, taking into account the social issues affecting the individual child. Thereby, we ensure a sustainable social anchoring of our work.


ATOS works to facilitate the exchange of knowledge between our different partners, striving to continuously improve and develop our methods, tools and approaches. Our sharing of knowledge is horizontal and acknowledges that each culture has insights and experiences that can contribute to defining how best to address issues of separation. hh
