Our partners are working as lights in their communities, providing transformative knowledge about health, safety and equality through community-based initiatives.
God works through the Church to bring light to the world: good news, justice and love. Our partners are working as lights in their communities, providing transformative knowledge about health, safety and equality through community-based initiatives.
Preventable health issues can drive people further into poverty as their incomes become sidelined, with the impacts of ill health. Many of our partners work with community members to develop health groups; these health groups provide valuable education on preventing disease and malnutrition. Messaging about the importance of mosquito nets is decreasing rates of malaria in many communities, information on diet is ensuring children are receiving appropriate nutrition, and guidance on reproductive health is allowing parents to control how many children they have, making it easier to provide for their families.
Education on gender-based violence and child safety is resulting in advocacy for the rights of women and children, and more women empowered to lead change in their communities.
Many of our partners are providing training in climate adaptation and resilience, and farmers are learning sustainable ways to operate. The wider communities, including school children and their parents, are learning how to grow food that will be more resilient to the harsh conditions they face.
