EFK UNGs Bidragsspår is a youth organization that cooperates with EFK (Interact Sweden). We have been around since 2008 and base our work on a Christian foundation. Groups and activities within EFK that want to, have the capacity to and are served by getting organized in a form that allows them to receive government grants, may be connected to EFK UNGs Bidragsspår. This gives resources to develop and improve local initiatives together with and for children and young people. We are proud that EFK UNGs Bidragsspår takes part in making qualitative and well visited projects and events happen all around Sweden.
This website is here for you to find out more about what Bidragsspåret does, and how your group can connect with us. Although this is a Swedish organization and our forms and most of our information is in Swedish, we are aware that there are international groups in EFK that might want information in English. If you find the information on this English page insufficient, you are most welcome to give the office a call, or send an email to our administrator. We will do our best to help you!
