New Zealanders have always thought of themselves as being good neighbours to each other. Now CWS has a way you can be a good neighbour to people further away.
The Good Neighbours programmes lets you support a specific CWS partner that is working to build a better life and overcome poverty.
Simply choose one of the partners featured below, contribute a minimum of $25 a month and in return you will receive news about your chosen partner three times a year. We will keep you up to date with their progress, their hopes and how your gift is helping.

Bees, trees, cows and pigs are making a real difference for rural families. With training, support and access to livestock and equipment through Church of Uganda projects, local people have new sources of income, reliable food supplies and the dignity that comes with working to improve their own lives.
Dalit women suffer a triple burden - extreme poverty, caste discrimination and being women. With WDRC support, village women who were not previously allowed outside thier homes not fight for better housing and property rights, intervene when people are victimised and enjoy new financial independence. The confidence of working together brings visible hope to their lives.
