We invest in Community Development because we believe that the greatest power for lasting change in poor communities, rests with communities themselves.
The problem of poverty is complex. And it can be created and sustained by any number of factors. That’s why we believe that the people who are affected by poverty are best placed to identify its underlying causes.
When you give to our Community Development projects, you support community driven programs run by our Christian partners.
Central to the success of this kind of programming is a high level of community participation and ownership.
Your generosity provides poor communities with the support, resources and training they need to form plans to address the root causes of their poverty and put these plans into action.
How it works
Community driven change
Communities identify the root causes of their poverty and work together to overcome them.
Working with strengths
Solutions to poverty should be unique in every community and draw on their individual strengths.
Creating lasting change
Ownership is key to creating change that lasts well beyond the conclusion of our programming.
