‘Christians shouldn’t just be pulling people out of the river. We should be going upstream to find out who’s pushing them in.’ Desmond Tutu

If we want to achieve our vision of a world without poverty then we need to tackle the structural issues that contribute to exacerbating inequalities in our world.

We want to see change, and we believe that change is possible.

We work in partnership with others who are advocating for global social, economic and environment justice. As well as building capacity of local partners to work on advocacy issues in their own contexts.

Advocacy initiatives supported:

  • Full inclusion of people with disabilities in humanitarian and development programming
  • Ensuring that livelihoods of farmers in Africa are don’t suffer because of unfair EU trade agreements
  • Supporting initiatives such as Fast for the Climate to campaign for environment justice
  • Calling for the protection of humanitarian space and adherence to humanitarian principles.
