At Christian Aid we believe that poverty in a world of plenty is a scandal. But another world is possible.
We believe every person is made in the image of God, steeped in inherent dignity and worth. And that every single one of us has a role to play in bringing about a fairer, more just world where all can flourish.
Although progress has been made on many fronts in tackling poverty, too many people – especially women and girls – are still being left behind. Unjust economic systems drive an unquenchable thirst for more, whilst growing the gap between those who hoard the world’s wealth and those who are struggling to get by. As a result, there are still millions of people living in extreme poverty without their basic rights fulfilled.
The dual crises of climate change and coronavirus are making matters worse, hurting the most vulnerable hardest. But another world is possible. Campaigning has seen people challenge accepted norms and free themselves from oppression time and time again.
We are part of a global movement campaigning for a more just world.
