TYY’s Executive Board has selected 0.7% targets of development cooperation aid for 2017. TYY’s Development Cooperation Wing opened a search in February for organisations doing development cooperation. Among 12 outstanding applications, Development Cooperation Wing ended up suggesting TYY’s Executive Board JYY’s and Bal Rashmi Society’s village communities’ empowerment project in India and Teria Sira’s La Voix des Femmes (Women's Voice) project in Burkina Faso. The criteria this year was education, gender equality, Agenda 2030 and acute need for support.

Every year TYY directs 0.7 % of the operating funds to development cooperation. TYY wants to act as an example and promote the achievement of the UN's sustainable development goals, also known as Agenda 2030. The plan for the use of funds is updated every year and also available on TYY’s website.
