Toilet Twinning helps fund water and sanitation projects enabling families to build a toilet, have access to clean water, and to learn about handwashing and other hygiene principles.  Dignity is restored when the whole family can use a private, hygienic toilet at their home and no longer have to squat in the bush.

Compassion is a leading Christian children’s charity. At our heart is a relentless passion to act on our compassion and empower every child left vulnerable by poverty. Our approach to fighting poverty is highly focused and personal. Since 1952, we’ve been giving children the opportunity to escape the suffering and fear poverty brings through our one-to-one child sponsorship model.

Everyone is equal in the sight of God.  For over 75 years, this truth has inspired us to stand together in solidarity with our most marginalised global neighbours, of all faiths and none.  Poverty is an outrage against humanity. It robs people of their dignity and lets injustice thrive.  We seek to eradicate extreme poverty by tackling its root causes. Together with people living in poverty, we amplify our voices to speak truth to power and create lasting change. 

We are on a mission to release thousands of families from grinding poverty through award-winning debt counselling and community groups. By equipping and empowering local churches to reach out on their doorsteps, we are bringing hope to tens of thousands of people every year.
