Join the fightback.

Poverty isn’t going to end itself – each one of us has a part to play. 

Run with Team Tearfund and together, let's finish poverty for good.


By fundraising with us, you’ll be changing the lives of people living in desperate need – like Birungi, from the Democratic Republic of Congo.

After losing her parents, Birungi missed out on an education in order to look after her younger twin sisters, neither of whom could walk. With no means to provide for her family, Birungi received sewing skills training through a Tearfund partner and now runs her own sustainable business.

£360 could enable five people like Birungi to learn a new skill – restoring hope, dignity and the potential to earn an income.
