Concern Worldwide is a non-governmental, international, humanitarian organisation dedicated to the reduction of suffering and working towards the ultimate elimination of extreme poverty in the world’s poorest countries.
A world where:
- No-one lives in poverty, fear or oppression
- All have access to a decent standard of living and the opportunities and choices essential to a long, healthy and creative life
- Everyone is treated with dignity and respect
Our mission is to help people living in extreme poverty achieve major improvements in their lives which last and spread without ongoing support from Concern.
To achieve this mission, we engage in long term development work, build resilience, respond to emergency situations, and seek to address the root causes of poverty through our development, education and advocacy work.
