Whether you’re looking to make a donation, volunteer abroad or join one of our charity challenge events, there are so many ways for you or your organisation to get involved. Through fundraising, you help us break the cycle of poverty.

We also provide many online resources to help you with your fundraising efforts. For local volunteering opportunities, please email us here.

Why get involved

When you help a family trapped in poverty to build a home, you provide the most permanent and powerful way to help them escape poverty, disease and begin a new life.
