We work tirelessly to help communities around the world escape the very worst effects of poverty and disaster.
And we believe that the same people facing these troubles, also have the best idea as to how they can overcome them. Tearfund listens: helping people to rise out of their poverty, utilising their resourcefulness and determination. Tearfund works alongside local churches and other locally-based organisations to help realise these plans for a better future.
Before, you knew us for our droughts, our poverty. But now the poor are transforming this country, and poverty shall no longer be our name.Meseret Kumsa, a Tearfund self-help group member, Ethiopia
We’re Christians committed to following Jesus where the need is greatest. God has called us to serve those living in poverty, regardless of race, gender, nationality or religious belief.
We know the gospel has the power to transform lives and heal communities, we see this truth in our work every day. God isn’t giving up on the poor, neither are we.
We know that our work is too important not to do it well. We’re committed to professionalism and are recognised for our expertise in relief, development and advocacy.
We’re signatories to the Red Cross Code of Conduct and are certified against the Humanitarian Accountability Partnership Standard. That way, we’re always accountable for the work we do.
