WHO WE HELP

Extreme poverty is defined by the World Bank as living on less that $1.90 a day.

We work with all races, faiths and cultures, and particularly women, children and the most vulnerable. All of our overseas projects impact non-Jewish beneficiaries and we consistently empower communities to lift themselves above the poverty line.

By applying a deeply sustainable approach to international development work through three focus areas, we increase the capabilities of local communities to earn, live and educate themselves.

We also increase the UK Jewish community’s own sense of global social responsibility and obligation to those in need.

THREE AREAS OF FOCUS

EDUCATION

From training community-based organisations to advocate for their schools, to providing vocational courses for women and youth, our partner-led work is improving educational opportunities.
 

YOUTH DEVELOPMENT

Investing in future leaders is key to ensuring the long-term alleviation of global poverty. We build strong emerging leaders overseas while engaging young people in the UK in global responsibility.
 

LIVELIHOODS

Our programmes increase sustainable livelihood opportunities, particularly for women and youth. This is essential for families if they are to lift themselves out of poverty for generations to come.
