change lives for good

We're an international organisation, working with over 15 million people in 45 countries for a world free from poverty and injustice. Our head office is in Johannesburg. We’re are amongst the first few international development organisations with our head office based in Africa.

We also have offices right across Asia, the Americas and Europe. We believe the people whose lives our work affects should decide how we’re run. And that’s what makes us different. We help people use their own power to fight poverty and injustice. Because that’s how real change happens – for families, for communities, for whole societies.
