Who we are Article Count: 1
Our mission is to alleviate the suffering of vulnerable people.
We won't do this without addressing the underlying causes of poverty. Identifying these first allows us to support communities to become self-sufficient and capable of achieving their full potential – in their own way. And this helps us work together to create a more stable environment with sustainable solutions where people see real benefits.
Since 2008, we have worked in 10 countries with a $62M investment over 250 projects helping people as they transition to longer-term development. Our more than 1,000 staff focus on marginalized people groups, as well as internally displaced persons and refugees. We have facilitated and delivered the key components of support and coupled activities with community capacity building to develop a local voice, ownership, and technical capability for communities to support their transition to longer-term sustainability.
We started with a vision to help the basic needs of people at their most vulnerable time. Whether in conflict or natural disaster, we are some of the first in, to understand the situation and the best way to help – not just the needs, but the best way to deliver to meet the need.
