Vision and Values

Our vision for every child, life in all its fullness,
Our prayer for every heart, the will to make it so.

We work toward a world where every child experiences life in all its fullness. Where they are protected, cared for and given the opportunities to become all God meant them to be.

Where they grow strong in communities free of need and full of promise. Where families are valued, the environment preserved and the most vulnerable live in security and confidence.

Where they become responsible citizens of well led nations. Where peace and justice reign and all have the right to contribute.

Where they flourish in a world where the treasure of our hearts and 
the measure of our wealth is the happiness and wellbeing of all children.


We are Christian

We follow the teachings of Jesus who calls us to 
love our neighbours, care for children and challenge injustice.

We are committed to the poor

We are called to serve the neediest people of the earth; to relieve their suffering and to promote the transformation of their wellbeing.

We are responsive

We respond to need whenever and wherever we can.
We shall never rest while children suffer in situations that can be changed.

We value all people

We believe that every person is created equal and 
entitled to freedom, justice, peace and opportunity. We celebrate the 
richness of diversity in human personality, culture and contribution.

We work as partners

We work together with all those who care, 
recognising that more is achieved through co-operation than competition.

We are good stewards

We take great care of the resources entrusted to us by others, whether this is money, time or trust, and we are open and transparent in our reporting.

Our joy is the joy of others
Like Gloria and her friends in Uganda – healthy, happy and enjoying school.
