Who we are 

We’re passionate about ending poverty and living out God’s kingdom values of love, hope and transformation. We believe communities know the issues they face better than anyone, so we identify local community organisations around the world to partner with and work alongside.

We believe aid should never be used to further political or religious standpoints, or be withheld on the basis of race, gender, religion, nationality or sexual orientation.

We advocate for poor, vulnerable and oppressed people regardless of who they are.

Through our partners we work across four causes to help those most in need. We protect the vulnerable from modern slavery. We Restore hope and peace after disaster strikes. We Sponsor children in need, and we Empower the poor to help themselves. This approach empowers communities to help themselves and find local, long term, sustainable solutions to poverty.
