Drawing strength from our global diversity, resources and decades of experience, we promote innovative solutions and are advocates for global responsibility. 

We facilitate lasting change by:

  • Strengthening capacity for self-help
  • Providing economic opportunity
  • Delivering relief in emergencies

Guided by the aspirations of local communities, we pursue our mission with both excellence and compassion because the people whom we serve deserve nothing less.

Our Vision
