What we stand for

What we stand for

Our vision, our mission and our work are all defined by one goal – ending extreme poverty, whatever it takes. We believe that no-one should have to live in fear that they won't have a home to sleep in or enough food to feed their children. 

For over 50 years we have been working with the world's poorest people to transform their lives.

Today we are a team of over 3,500 highly skilled and dedicated professionals from 50 countries who share an exceptional depth and diversity of experience.

Each year our specialist teams work with 25 million people living on less than $2 a day, from war zones in Syria and Somalia to devastating floods in Bangladesh.

Our track record

We have a track record in developing cutting-edge approaches that have pushed the boundaries of innovations in maternal and child health care, cash transfers, emergency response and more.
