The Jewish community's response to extreme poverty


We work to reduce extreme poverty in some of the poorest regions of the world.

Through building partnerships, networks, and leadership we change lives.

Our sustainable development work overseas is in three areas: livelihoods, education and youth empowerment.

In 2017, we brought 3577 people out of poverty.  

In the UK we are driven by the expertise of the UK Jewish community, and work to increase its own global social responsibility through education and providing volunteer opportunities

Over 200 people have volunteered with Tzedek overseas.
