Our work is about showing Christ’s love in action. Your support can help us to be love in these four important ways:
Poverty is complex. And its root causes are interconnected. That’s why we believe that a response to poverty needs to be relevant to its own situation.
Through our Christian partners, we work with communities to identify the root causes of their poverty. We provide support, resources and training so communities can put their plans to overcome poverty into action.
Central to the success of this type of programming is a high level of community participation and ownership. That’s why we work with our Christian partners to encourage people to form community-based organisations.
Community-based organisations receive training on agriculture, education, health, child rights, leadership skills and savings. Members are encouraged to act together and discover ways to use their strengths to create change and build lasting solutions.
We focus especially on children because we believe that it is children who are most impacted by poverty. If children are to enjoy the fullness of life God intends, they need to grow up in safe and nurturing communities where their voices are heard. They need to have the opportunity to go to school. And they need to have families who can keep them fed, sheltered and healthy.
At Baptist World Aid, we approach disaster in three phases: risk reduction, response and recovery.
We believe that standing up for the oppressed and marginalised is an essential part of a life lived for Christ. Our advocacy work creates opportunities for you to be love by responding to God’s call to speak for justice.
There are three aspects to our advocacy: we research, mobilise and campaign.
