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.
Tearfund partners with churches in more than 50 of the world’s poorest countries. We tackle poverty and injustice through sustainable developments, by responding to disasters and challenging injustice. We believe an end to extreme poverty is possible.
Thousands of people needlessly suffer and die every because of poverty. But that’s not God’s plan for the world. And God is calling all of us to reach out to people in greatest need. We partner with local churches and organisations who have a crucial role to play in the places worst affected by poverty.
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.
