Tearfund

The Tearfund logo

Tearfund is a Christian international aid and development agency working globally to end poverty and injustice and to restore dignity and hope in some of the world’s poorest communities.

They operate in more than fifty countries around the world. As well as being present in disaster situations and recovery through our response teams, they speak out on behalf of poor people on the national and international stage by petitioning governments, campaigning for justice and raising the profile of key poverty issues wherever they can.

Tearfund doesn’t just give money to projects, we work through the local churches and some partners helping people to transform and change their local communities. One way this is done is by forming SHGs (Self Help Groups). People are encouraged to think what they need, then groups get together to save a little regularly. From having no income and saving just 0.5 Ethiopian Birr per week, Firehiwot moved from selling onions and then clothing. Now she has a shop!. These have helped give confidence and strengthen social networks. Helping in disaster situations and building resilience. The groups will give grants to help fund initiatives. Changing people from feeling helpless to giving them aspirations.

Ethiopia has more than 18,000 SGHs and 330,000 members. There are also groups in Nepal, Uganda and Malawi.
