Understanding that many factors contribute to poverty, UnitingWorld Relief and Development programs seek to address both the structural causes of poverty and the ways these are experienced in local communities.

Our four main program areas focus on:

Economic and Social Empowerment

Health, including Water and Sanitation


Partnering Women for Change

We work in partnership with local organisations to implement projects in these four program areas, focusing on the poorest and marginalised communities. Alongside the projects we work on together, we support our partners and build their capacity so that they are able to empower their local communities, households and people through sustainable development initiatives.

We also support our partners as they respond to natural disasters and other humanitarian emergencies. Read more about current emergency relief projects here.
