Tearfund works through local churches and Christian agencies – our partners – to open up brighter futures for the world’s poorest communities. Together we’re helping people become all that God wants them to be.
And this is how we work…
Community Development. In 2003-4, Tearfund worked with local partners in more than 70 countries around the world. Communities are encouraged to come up with initiatives to shape their own future. These could be providing healthcare, literacy classes, clean water and sanitation, HIV/AIDS education, drug rehabilitation or food security programmes.
When Disaster Strikes. whether it’s a flood, famine, earthquake or war – poor people suffer most. Tearfund is on standby to respond with crucial emergency relief. But we’re also aiming to prevent disasters before they happen. Year-round, we are helping people who live in vulnerable places to find better ways to cope with the unexpected. And this doesn’t just save money, it saves lives.
Speaking Out. Tearfund works to tackle the underlying causes of poverty. If governments and institutions can be persuaded to act on behalf of poor people, it can unlock benefits for millions. We’re taking Proverbs 31:8 as our biblical mandate: ‘Speak up for those who cannot speak up for themselves.’
Earning a Living is a passport out of poverty. Tearfund helps families find ways to provide for themselves – day in, day out. For example, small loans groups give poor people a chance to own land or start a business, supporting them with training and advice.
