How We Work

  • We provide help where needed, regardless of race, religion or region. 
  • We do not parachute into a community but work through strong long term partnerships.
  • We work in partnership with local groups who are the experts and the activists.
  • We work at the grassroots with vulnerable and marginalised people.
  • We trust the wisdom of the local community to know what is needed and how best to do it.
  • We support self-determination and the role of women in development.
  • We share their stories and concerns with New Zealanders so we can look after each other.
