Concern works directly with a select group of trusts and foundations to deliver bespoke programmes, designed and chosen to meet each trust’s needs and priorities.
Where we work
Our annual report
Development grants contribute to Concern’s long-term work tackling extreme poverty and hunger. Trusts and foundations support a wide range of Concern’s programmes in the areas of nutrition, health, livelihoods, and education, as well as integrated approaches such as our Graduation programme, which supports families to “graduate” from extreme poverty for good.
We work with the most vulnerable communities in many of the world’s poorest and most fragile states that are at greatest risk from conflict and disaster. This means that the trusts and foundations that donate to our development work can be assured that their donations make a real difference to some of the hardest-to-reach people in areas with the greatest need.
Nutrition and health
Our nutrition and health work takes a comprehensive approach to ending hunger. We deliver food aid directly to those who need it most, and we also work with communities to identify and treat acutely malnourished children. We pioneered the innovative Community Management of Acute Malnutrition (CMAM) Surge approach to strengthen health services and communities to manage surges in malnutrition, driven by disasters or seasonal changes. At the same time, Concern supports families to grow and prepare a more diverse range of nutritious food, even in constrained circumstances. We also run innovative programmes on water, sanitation, and hygiene, a key part of improving maternal and child health.
All trusts that donate to our long-term development work will receive a personal acknowledgement, and will have the chance to see the impact of their work through our newsletters, annual report, and regular publications. A dedicated member of staff will work with you to provide you with all the information you require throughout your time supporting Concern.
Trusts that want to engage in a more personalised relationship, and are able to make a larger donation, can also expect:
