We're glad you're here


As a Christian agency, our faith motivates us. We believe that God calls us to love our global neighbours and is at work in the world. We believe that he requires us to act justly and to love mercy. We believe he has called us to end poverty so that all may enjoy fullness of life as he intends.

A word from our CEO


As I look back over the year, two defining characteristics emerge: challenge and gratitude. It was a year filled with global challenges. In addition to numerous political tragedies and natural disasters, we all felt the social and economic impact of a global pandemic, both here in Australia and in the dozens of countries where we serve. In fact, COVID-19 has continued to shape not just how we live and work, but also how we and our Christian partners have responded to the most vulnerable in our world. We continue to dream of and work toward a world where poverty has ended, and all people enjoy the fullness of life God intends. Until that day, we give thanks to God for the work he calls us to and for those he calls to partner with us.
