We support organisations and develop projects that address the multiple challenges of poverty and development. We provide support across four key areas.ACCESS TO BASIC SERVICES
In order for people to thrive, their basic needs must be met first – including good health, a quality education and access to nutritious food and clean water and sanitation.
We’ve seen how a dose of antibiotics, a pair of glasses, a morning snack or a remedial education programme can be lifesaving or life changing. Providing access to these necessities is our primary focus.WOMEN’S SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT
Gender inequality is the result of a historic power imbalance, which is reinforced and replicated by prejudice and legal barriers. We’re dismantling gender inequality by providing women across the world with the necessary skills, resources and agency to access the opportunities they deserve.SUSTAINABLE LIVELIHOODS
To eradicate extreme poverty, we need to provide new opportunities for making a living that are economically, ecologically and socially sustainable.
We fund approaches that are proven to help those living in extreme poverty gain relevant skills and resources, achieve financial security and improve their quality of life.EMERGENCY RESPONSE
Effective and timely emergency aid can save lives, relieve suffering and protect livelihoods.
Our emergency response funding supports the people in greatest need. As well as ensuring immediate basic needs are met, we’re committed to restoring dignity and reducing vulnerability over the longer term.
