Building hope for impoverished people and communities
Working across Europe's six poorest countries, we stand side by side with families, children and elderly people to help them move towards self-sufficiency. This year we will bring hope to over 20,000 children, around 9,000 families and more than 150,000 elderly people. We are committed to enabling long-term, sustainable change through our sponsorship schemes, family and child support programmes and community care.
How we work
We meet the needs of the whole person through five core priorities:
• Spiritual development
• Emotional care (counseling and building self-esteem)
• Material support
• Long-term sustainability
Taking advantage of over 50 years knowledge and experience, we tackle poverty through strong community relationships. We make a difference through our neighbourhood network of over 4,000 volunteers, close partnerships with local churches and exceptional relationships with governments.
