How we work

Our Heritage






A Catalyst for Change

We embed Christian values within a community development approach working alongside and with communities from a point of generosity to achieve lasting change.

We believe that responses to needs should be based on relationships and partnerships so that they are sustainable and do not depend entirely on the ongoing work of the Foundation. By being a catalyst for change rather than the owner of change we ensure that we retain the capacity to be creative and innovative into the future.
