Who We Are

We are a nonprofit organisation working together with and in support of people affected by poverty and injustice. Our primary focus is refugees and asylum seekers: individuals, families and children who fled their homes due to war, persecution or disaster. We are unapologetically committed to the use a lean structure and a startup mentality. All in order to bring a fresh, non-traditional, and cost-effective approach to our programmes. 

Our Values

Our values are based on the principles of the Christian Faith and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights:

SOLIDARITY

Having compassion and a genuine concern for aiding those in need.

AUTONOMY

Functioning free from external control (religious/political groups).

Equality

Affirming equal rights to a life with dignity for people of all backgrounds.

TRANSPARENCY

Being accountable and transparent at all areas and levels of our work.

Partnership

Working with like-minded individuals, groups, churches & organisations.

MODESTY

Conducting our work with humility and a sensible staff compensation.

Our Team

Our workers raise their own personal financial support from among their family, friends and churches/organisations. That enable us to use the public donations we receive in our programmes, with a direct benefit to the people we serve.
