2016/17 Annual Report

Transforming lives together

Your support is making a huge impact around the world – and we want to show you how. Our supporters are at the heart of all that we do; without you, we simply wouldn’t be able to fulfill our mission to follow Jesus where the need is greatest. It is therefore incredibly important to us that we are as transparent and accountable as we can be – and a big part of that comes through our Annual Report.

The 2017 Annual Report shows you in detail where our funding comes from and how we’ve used it to make a difference over the last year. In it, you’ll find all the facts and figures as well as amazing stories of lives transformed by your generosity. We hope you find it informative as well as inspiring.

As well as looking back over the achievements of the last year, this is what we’re looking forward to in the future. Watch our CEO Nigel Harris discuss our key areas of focus moving ahead.
