long-term development

Lasting change takes time. Your support enables long-term development projects that help communities to tackle their own problems – whether that’s through livelihoods and vocational training, health and hygiene programs, and psychosocial and educational support, you are standing in solidarity with passionate people across the globe as they work to bring positive change to their own communities.

In war-torn Afghanistan, you’re helping to give girls living in rural areas a brighter future by improving their access to quality education. On the Thai-Myanmar border, you’re providing Burmese refugees with small business and farming skills to support themselves until it is safe to return home. And in drought-stricken Zimbabwe, your gifts are reaching vulnerable farmers with innovative new techniques so they can grow enough food to feed their families, even when the rains fail.

More ways to take action

Together we raised over $3 million during Ration Challenge 2018 - enough to feed more than 10,000 refugees for a year!
