We Support

Here are some of the organisations and initiatives which one or more of our members give to in fulfilment of their pledges. If you are a prospective or new member, and you are uncertain of where to give, this list may help. Contact the organisations or initiatives that appeal to you, find out what they do, how they do it, and how good they are at doing it. Then decide which ones you want to support. But do not feel constrained by this list. There are sure to be other organisations and initiatives, not on this list, which are doing great work in reducing poverty and alleviating its effects.

If you want further advice on how best to fulfil your pledge, we suggest that you contact the Social Justice Initiative ( or Inyathelo ( The aims of these organisations overlap with ours. But they will be able to provide you with information, expertise and an infrastructure which we lack.
