Where we work

We work with people living in poverty in some of the poorest communities around the world.

We work with some of the world's most vulnerable communities in 37 countries in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America and the Caribbean.

When emergencies strike in these countries, we are there before, during and after to save lives and support people in the long term. 

We also work in other countries and regions through the ACT Alliance and our other partners, particularly around humanitarian emergencies such as the refugee crisis.

Burkina Faso

We have been working in the Sahel region of West Africa since the 1970s. The programme began with a humanitarian focus and now includes advocacy work.

Burundi

We've been working in Burundi since 1995, initially providing humanitarian assistance following the Rwandan genocide, but now focusing on development.

Ghana

In Ghana we work to significantly improve the lives of poor and marginalised men and women and bring about a fair and just society.

Kenya

We believe that unjust power relations are at the centre of poverty, so we aim ensure communities are able to understand and exercise their rights to health services, engage in inclusive markets, and be resilient to climate-related risks.

Myanmar (Burma)

We've worked in Myanmar for more than 30 years in partnership with civil society and faith-based organisations, helping to build thriving and resilient communities.
