We work for a world where lives are whole and hopeful, free from poverty and injustice.
Because every person matters. Because every person is beloved by God and invited to enjoy the rich blessing of abundant life.
As an agency of the Uniting Church in Australia, we are a channel for connecting Australian people to God’s work in the wider world.
We translate rigourous sustainable community development principles through the lens of our Christian faith.
Faith is the heart language we share with our partners.
We work with and through churches, but our programs include all people regardless of their faith, sexuality, ethnicity, ability or gender.
We seek out the marginalised and the vulnerable. We listen to the voices of the poorest.
We believe in solidarity not charity.
We believe that local communities are best placed to identify the solutions to their own problems.
Our partners are the local church, helping communities unlock their God-given potential to set themselves free from poverty and injustice.
Our partners know the culture and the context. So often, they can see simple, inexpensive solutions.
We contribute our capacity as an accredited development agency to help fulfill their vision.
As we walk with our partners on this transformational journey, we help to build leadership and organisational capacity.
We ourselves are changed by the rich wisdom of our partners, their courageous actions and their tenacious faith. We offer this gift back into the life the Uniting Church.
