Word From Our CEO

Who would have thought that more than two years on, we would still be needing to factor the challenges of a global pandemic into everything we do? But this last year has continued to test our commitment and resilience and this has made our work through—68 projects in 24 countries, alongside 37 Christian Partners—arguably more important than arguably any time in our 63-year history. We are so grateful that even though the economic climate here at home is uncertain, the Australian Baptist family and our other faithful supporters have continued to provide sacrificially to allow us to impact the lives of more than 883,907 people, including 311,402 children.
