Best known as the world’s leading independent conservation body, we’ve seen first-hand how the health and security of people, wildlife and the environment are all interlinked.

That’s why our passion for safeguarding the natural world has to be backed up by other environmental action - tackling the urgent threat of climate change (with our big global campaigns like Earth Hour) and promoting sustainable use of resources by helping to change the way we live.

ONE is a campaigning and advocacy organisation of 3.5 million people taking action to end extreme poverty and preventable disease, particularly in Africa… because the facts show extreme poverty has already been cut in half and can be virtually eliminated by 2030, but only if we act with urgency now.

Cofounded by Bono and strictly nonpartisan, we raise public awareness and work with political leaders to combat AIDS and preventable diseases, increase investments in agriculture and nutrition, and demand greater transparency in poverty-fighting programs. ONE also works closely with African activists and policymakers as they fight corruption, promote poverty-fighting priorities, monitor the use of aid, and help build civil society and free enterprise.

​Vine Trust is an international interdenominational volunteering charity which seeks to enable volunteers to make a real and significant difference to some of the poorest children and communities in the world. We welcome people from all backgrounds who share our ethos of caring and our belief that whilst we can’t help everyone we can all help someone.

Alongside this, we plan to replicate our Amazon Hope healthcare model on Lake Victoria, Tanzania by 2013, with the aim of establishing a healthcare service for isolated communities in this area and reaching a further 100,000 people who are in need of access to basic healthcare services.

Christian Aid

Christian Aid is a Christian organisation that insists the world can and must be swiftly changed to one where everyone can live a full life, free from poverty.

We work globally for profound change that eradicates the causes of poverty, striving to achieve equality, dignity and freedom for all, regardless of faith or nationality. We are part of a wider movement for social justice.

We provide urgent, practical and effective assistance where need is great, tackling the effects of poverty as well as its root causes.

Poverty is an outrage against humanity. It robs people of dignity, freedom and hope, of power over their own lives. Christian Aid has a vision - an end to poverty - and we believe that vision can become a reality.

Tearfund

​Tearfund’s call is to go to the places of greatest need. We do whatever it takes to end poverty and rebuild poor communities God’s way. We work through local churches because they are Jesus’ body on earth, well placed in poor communities to empower people to change their own lives. We help and encourage churches to be active - installing wells, funding social entrepreneurs, setting up clinics, training midwives, bringing spiritual as well as physical change. And much more. We challenge, and change, policies that lock poor people in poverty. And when poor communities are struck by disasters and need urgent help, we respond quickly. We do whatever’s needed, in Jesus’ name, to release people trapped in poverty.
