We are a global organisation, 4,000 strong, powered by the belief that a better world is possible. We help people survive and get back on their feet when natural disaster strikes, economies collapse or conflict erupts. And where there are chronic threats to peace and progress, we partner with communities to overcome obstacles and thrive.
We live and work in more than 40 countries facing the world’s toughest challenges. We have no political or religious agenda. For more than three decades, we’ve learned and grown alongside extraordinary people—more than 190 million individuals who understand their own needs better than anyone else. Our experience shows they are best able to strengthen their communities from within. In everything we do, we look for moments of transition to connect people to resources and expertise that can catalyze transformative change.
Together with our partners we are realizing incredible impact. By linking big ideas, bold action and local insights, we can change the world.
