This way-of-working underpins our four intervention areas.
Enterprising People - Our life skills and entrepreneurial programmes give individuals the tools to drive the development process themselves. We help families kick start income-generating activities in their home or community and train young people in vital skills such as financial literacy and launching their own business.
Early Recovery and Resilient Livelihoods - To prepare people in remote communities for natural disaster or periods of instability, we offer a variety of agricultural programmes and Self Help Groups (SHGs). We also drive access to WASH through safe water and sanitation projects, hygiene education and awareness-raising.
Relief - Our cash and protection programmes deliver vital humanitarian support in response to major crises and conflict. We work tirelessly to gain the support of government institutions and partner organisations to ensure that emergency assistance reaches those who need it most.
Community Based Care and Protection - Dorcas Community Centres, country staff and local ambassadors promote gender equality and inclusion of minority groups and fight abuse, exploitation and human trafficking. Our advocacy efforts hold governments to account.
