Our vision: A world free from extreme poverty.
Our aim: A global movement encouraging Christians to be committed to the poor and hold governments accountable for their pledge within the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
Our mission: A global voice on poverty for Christians. Encouraging you to be informed, to engage and to speak out for justice.
How do we do this? We advocate on the MDGs. We ask leaders to take responsibility for their commitment to halve extreme poverty by 2015. This may mean asking a local MP in Zambia to release funds allocated for health that aren't being received by the community. Or by asking Presidents and Prime Ministers to ensure their global Summit discussions include the poor.
To remain relevant to local issues, many countries have their own plans and strategies. They work closely with other civil society groups, i.e. Global Call to Action against Poverty (GCAP) and the United Nations Millennium Campaign (UNMC).
From an international perspective each country chooses two MDGs to focus their advocacy work on until 2015. We also establish 'global moments' where all campaigns join together for maximum impact.
Finally, we work to provide a global response towards good governance and integrity in both public and private sectors, in high-income and low-income countries.
We take our inspiration from the prophet, Micah.
"He has shown you O man what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God." - Micah 6v8
