We empowered communities to emerge from poverty and vulnerability

This year we continued to tackle issues at the heart of poverty and suffering, from addressing community development needs to challenging harmful social practices such as gender-based violence. We provided access to healthcare, education, water and sanitation and provided livelihood opportunities by working with communities in 32 countries, benefiting over five million people.
Our development programs are not just about providing access to essential services, but understanding the multiple challenges communities face and empowering them to lift themselves out of poverty.
