Who we help

We target our help to the most vulnerable people in the world:

Young people and Children

Whilst parents are poor, particularly during conflict, children and young people miss their education. Yet to establish stable, productive communities, they are the future.

Children like these   can go to school because their carers can now pay for the books and uniforms

Women

The poorest women are often dependent and vulnerable to many forms of abuse – and women are estimated to be 70% of the world’s poorest people.

Disabled people

There is huge misunderstanding about disabled people – sometimes they are even hidden away in shame. At least 10% of people are disabled in developing countries, and the majority (70%) are extremely poor.

Workers

Some workers face danger to their health and safety, as well as being paid a pittance for their work.  Others  – like girls and young  women doing domestic  work –  have no-one to protect them from abuse.

HIV/AIDS

People affected by HIV/AIDS face both stigma and health challenges in all areas of their life; but they can ‘live positively’.

After Conflict

Terrible conflicts leave lasting impact – on local economies, infrastructure and on the victims of war. But countries can rebuild.

Environmental Challenges or Disasters

When emergency aid is finished and gone, there is an urgent need to rebuild livelihoods for their long term survival and independence.
