Empowering communities

We help vulnerable communities across the world to take control of their lives, so they can create lasting change.

Throughout our work, our focus is on giving people the skills and knowledge they need to support and protect themselves. We also work closely with local organisations which have long-standing relationships with the towns and villages they serve. It means communities are able to implement their own, long-term solutions to the problems they face.

Right now, thousands of innocent people are fleeing Syria every day to protect their families from bloodshed, violence and death. We need your support to provide emergency relief packs to the families fleeing in Syria.
