You can make a powerful impact
as a Unitingworld global neighbour.
Give regularly to partner with the global church for a world free from poverty and injustice.
Your ongoing gift will have a greater impact in people's lives, strengthening our projects by allowing us to make longer term plans with our partners.
We partner with local churches, helping communities unlock their God-given potential to set themselves free from poverty and injustice.
Our partners lead the way because they know their own culture and context and are best placed to make lasting change.
We translate rigorous sustainable community development principles through the lens of our Christian faith.
We work with and through churches, but our programs include all people regardless of their faith, sexuality, ethnicity, ability, or gender.
Your generosity enables the life-changing initiatives of our partners, providing essential resources and support.
As we walk with our partners on this transformational journey, we help to build leadership and organisational capacity. We ourselves are changed by the rich wisdom of our partners, their courageous actions and their tenacious faith.
To feel compassion when we are confronted with another’s need, to feel that strong impulse to help, is the sign of a loving heart and a reflection of God’s image in us.
We believe that true discipleship calls us to commit ourselves in planned and systematic ways to address the injustices in our world. It challenges us to alter the rhythms and assumptions of our daily living to orient ourselves to God’s desire for a just world.

Supporter Story: Why Renata became a Global Neighbour
New UnitingWorld Global Neighbour, Renata, began donating to international charities when her only income was $5 a week pocket money. "I could see that even $1 per week would make a difference to people living on less than $2 per day.”
She says, “There are people in this world living on a scale of poverty that I cannot even begin to understand, and it’s only luck that I was born here instead of there. As God has given to me, I feel obliged to pass some of that on to others.”
Renata became a Global Neighbour recently, and chose to support UnitingWorld because she likes the values we hold and the way we work with local communities.
Renata’s regular giving means we can commit long-term to our partners and they can plan ahead with confidence. We can also save money on fundraising.
Renata says it also helps her be more intentional and sustainable in giving. “I’ve set up my regular giving so it comes out of my account on the same day that my pay goes in so I don’t even notice it going. Regular giving enables me to plan in the same way I manage my other expenses.”
