We have a vision of a peaceful, just and sustainable world for everyone.

To work towards making this kind of world a reality, we focus on four main areas:

  • Disasters and climate adaptation
  • Self Reliance 
  • Remote health
  • Safe relationships

Within these themes, we work with Anglican and like-minded partners across four geographic regions of the world (Africa, Middle East, Asia, Pacific) to help communities take control of their futures and overcome poverty and injustice.

We use a strength-based approach in all our partnerships and programs. We believe that change happens sustainably when communities are helped to recognise the skills, strengths and assets that they already have that enable them to overcome their challenges. This means that the communities themselves take responsibility for change.

Civil society, gender and empowerment

Women and girls face many barriers to reaching their full potential simply because they are female.

Environment and sustainability

The world’s changing climate is having hugely destructive impacts on people’s lives, and communities in the developing world are much more vulnerable.

Education

Too many children and young people are missing out on an education. And for many children who get to go to school, the education they receive is not adequate.

Health

Addressing the health of communities is an essential aspect of fighting poverty. But poverty is also a contributor to health problems.

Sustainable livelihoods

Our planet is home to 7 billion people, and although there is enough food for everyone, every night one out of every eight people goes to bed hungry, and one child in three is underweight.
