Influence and convening power

Ways to work with us

Partner with us

Let’s see where your goals and ours intersect. You might want a stable supply of quality products, we want a fair price for farmers. You might be developing products and services that vulnerable and marginalised communities need, we want to increase access to markets for these communities.  We have a vast global network – we work in Africa, the Americas, Asia and the Middle East. We can help you understand the risks and opportunities facing local  communities across the globe and build sustainable solutions together.  

Fund a project or provide expertise

Help a fledgling business take off and you could lift hundreds out of poverty. You could fund a health project or provide emergency funding after a crisis. You could provide technology or expertise to build local skills. There are many ways to work with Christian Aid.

Support a business in the global South

If you are an investor, you can connect with investable pipeline enterprises and support them directly to grow their businesses.

If you are a service provider, the skills of your employees could contribute to the development of small and growing businesses in the developing world.

Speak up for the global South

We know large companies regularly deal with government at home and abroad. And we know that our concerns are often your concerns too. You can help us get heard in high places while your business gains a deeper understanding of poverty reduction and complex development challenges.
