Our vision

As a Christian charity, Tearfund believes that everyone has an amazing God-given potential to create change. We show people around the world how to unlock these gifts and put them to use escaping poverty. Many of our partners in this work are local churches, who discover how to offer their communities material and spiritual hope.


Ready to speak, ready to act

When disaster strikes, we are ready to respond. And we encourage men and women like you to speak out about issues that affect those affected by poverty. Join us as we empower millions more to end extreme poverty.
