No going back to extreme poverty

Our life-changing community training equips people with the skills they need to lift themselves out of extreme poverty.

Let's practise what we pray

When we put our prayers into practice to end extreme poverty, we set something epic in motion. A community receives our innovative training through their local church, and they learn knowledge and skills that cannot be taken away.

Together, they work to become self-sufficient, so there’s no going back to extreme poverty.

See how Pastor Obed and his community in Burundi were inspired to raise money and build a new health centre, thanks to training from Tearfund.
