Scottish Government Projects

Almost since the inception of the Scottish International Development fund in 2005, Tearfund has been supported by the Scottish Government to help some of the most vulnerable communities across the world to lift themselves out of poverty.

These projects have included short term emergency relief work, enabling us to provide shelter, food and clean water to people going through some of the worst crises our world has seen in the last 10 years.

In addition, Scottish Government funding has had a significant focus on helping people in the longer term, through projects which are helping communities to respond to a changing climate, gain access to safe and clean water, protect their children and find opportunities to improve their livelihoods so that they and their families can flourish. Tearfund is currently implementing development projects in Rwanda and Malawi.
