Let's practise what we pray

Our life-changing community training empowers people with skills and knowledge to become self-sufficient, so there’s no going back to extreme poverty.

This Christmas we are facing greater need than ever before. Will you send a gift today to provide life-changing training that’s urgently needed?

Impact of our community training

Your donation is urgently needed to help more communities lift themselves out of extreme poverty.

Please donate

Help us transform communities

A small donation goes a long way for people like Marie, who lives in Chad.

Thanks to training from Tearfund delivered through her local church, Marie learned new farming methods which enabled her to grow enough crops to feed her children, and earn an income.

When Isaac received our community training, he was able to build a more spacious house for his wife and children, and his mother and sister. He also learned new farming techniques to help him grow vegetables despite the changing climate.

'I find the joy of living with the income earned from farming. I use it for food, school fees, buying medicine and other needs,' says Isaac.

This Christmas, your gift is urgently needed to support more families like Marie and Isaac’s around the world, so there’s no going back to extreme poverty.
