Every year we make sure that our programs are effective and impactful, and one way we do this is to understand our reach in numbers. Although the real difference that your support makes can’t be measured in numbers alone, they do help to illustrate the reach of benefits to communities and how far your donations go.
In the last financial year, a total of 149,447 lives have been positively impacted with your help. This is a testament to both the power of your support as well as the hard work that has been undertaken by our local partners, who are a part of the communities we reach.
Here are just a few of the achievements across Africa, Asia, the Pacific and the Middle East. For full information, see our 2021 Annual Report published on our website.
In Kenya, we supported our partner, the Anglican Church of Kenya, to enable 1,690 people to increase their household income as a result of engaging in a range of income-generating activities.
In Mozambique, we assisted our partner, the Diocese
of Nampula, to train 13,348 community members on the benefits of birth spacing and being able to access modern forms of family planning. We also enabled 3,550 vulnerable people (including 1,598 women and girls) to adopt improved agricultural practices for greater access to reliable food.
In India, we helped our partner, Cathedral Relief Service, in Kolkata, to support women in making 20,000 face masks to protect against COVID-19 and generating incomes for the women.
In the Solomon Islands, we supported our partner, the Anglican Church of Melanesia Solomon Islands (ACOM SI) and other church partners, to ensure that 1,478 households across Isabel province receive public health materials on gender and protection. We also worked with ACOM SI to train 26 women leaders as Positive Parenting Program facilitators.
