IWitness is a unique programme that gives IKEA co-workers the opportunity to see first-hand the great work the IKEA Foundation’s partners are doing. This is funded thanks to the efforts of IKEA co-workers from around the world.

Our founder, Ingvar Kamprad, was clear about the purpose of the IKEA Foundation.

We do not exist to increase sales for IKEA or to build the brand. We are here to make a better life for children and families who are most in need.

He was also clear that he wanted IKEA co-workers to be proud of the work we do. It’s only thanks to their efforts that we can provide funding to our partners who, in turn, work so hard to improve the lives of so many people.

We know that we cannot make large scale change happen by working alone. It is only by engaging the many IKEA co-workers, who share our values and passion, that we can change the world. It is for this reason that we work with our partners to bring IKEA co-workers into the field to see first hand what’s being done, thanks to funding from the IKEA Foundation. Then they have a responsibility to take what they have learned and share it with the world.
