long-term development

Lasting change takes time. Your support enables long-term development projects that help communities to tackle their own problems – whether that’s through livelihoods and vocational training, health and hygiene programs, and psychosocial and educational support, you are standing in solidarity with passionate people across the globe as they work to bring positive change to their own communities.

In war-torn Afghanistan, you’re helping to give girls living in rural areas a brighter future by improving their access to quality education. On the Thai-Myanmar border, you’re providing Burmese refugees with small business and farming skills to support themselves until it is safe to return home. And in drought-stricken Zimbabwe, your gifts are reaching vulnerable farmers with innovative new techniques so they can grow enough food to feed their families, even when the rains fail.

More ways to take action

Hundreds of thousands of Rohingya families have fled from violence and persecution in Myanmar. Currently living in makeshift camps in Bangladesh, they urgently need our help.

By giving a monthly gift, you can help bring safety, justice and dignity to people around the world who have fled from conflict and natural disasters.

Take the Act for Peace Ration Challenge during Refugee Week (June 2018) to raise money in support of refugees who have lost everything, and challenge perspectives – including your own.
