We offer food donations and emergency funds to help tackle the most severe situations, such as the Grenfell Tower fire in London, monsoon floods in Bangladesh, and the Rohingya crisis in Myanmar.
We have worked alongside other charity organisations such as Sacred Life Trust, helping to fundraise and collect emergency aid including food, medicine, clothes and monetary donations for their ongoing projects around the world. We help deliver emergency aid direct to those most affected by poverty, war and disasters.
We will continue to support and work alongside other organisations who are already involved in poverty reduction and development work in poor countries around the world helping us to build our knowledge and experience working internationally in the near future.
At this stage of our organisation we will only focus on the countries and areas we already have knowledge of and where assistance is urgently required. We will hopefully go where the need is greatest and will identify those organisations (NGO’s) which are actively working in those countries who have already set up a network of volunteers and supporters who we can work in partnership with.
In order to target poverty more effectively we will create a poverty assessment criteria plan which will be used when selecting countries identified for assistance. Our objective is to adopt a standardised procedure for identifying poor households under two main criteria areas: Absolute poverty and Relative poverty.
Absolute poverty: Where areas/households/persons are unable to meet the basic needs of living without electricity, clean water and adequate shelter and are well below the threshold for extreme poverty adopted by the World Bank and other International organisations.
Relative poverty: Where areas/households/persons do meet the basic needs of living but are still financially poor compared to other average living standards in society and are on the border line of the $1.90 per person threshold for poverty set by the World Bank and other International organisations.
The areas/households/persons will be assessed by ourselves through personal visits or by information/data collected by local poverty alleviation NGO’s against the six dimensions set by our organisation namely: 1) Standard of Living, 2) Health, 3) Financial Security, 4) Food Security, 5) Education, 6) Community Vitality.
This is still ‘work in progress’ but we will have indicators for each object to work towards which will help us determine the extent of poverty and formulate need-based interventions, developments, projects and aid work to help reduce poverty.
We understand that working with the extreme poor requires a great deal of attention, collective time and financial resource. We will assess and monitor each project by ourselves or will be monitored by our partners on the ground and decide exactly which dimension/object is mostly needed for a particular area/household/persons.
We will decide on which income generating projects will suit best for that particular need and work with the poor to create a greater economic security and financial stability to develop self confidence for sustainable livelihoods by meeting basic needs.
Each project will be monitored regularly and poverty alleviation results will be recorded for follow-up and then will be decided on how much further ongoing support is needed or if the project work will be a one-off.
We will continue to collect information on current living conditions and also formulate targeted poverty reduction interventions for the selected areas/households/persons agreed by the trustees of our organisation.
Depending on the type of poverty relief, we ‘trustees’ will decide whether to make the follow-up and monitor the success ourselves by visiting the countries ourselves or measure the success outcome through our on the ground NGO partners by providing us with full reports & details of financial spending, development funding and income generating activities for the poor areas/households/persons.
We have tried to answer your questions as clearly as possible and as stated above, we are still in the beginning stage of our organisation development and trying to build our reputation and credibility by currently working with other larger charity organisations in order to increase our knowledge and expertise in the field of charitable work.
