Tear supports churches in the struggle against poverty and injustice, in order to bring transformation to people’s lives around the world. We envision and support local churches and Christian organisations in Africa, Asia and Latin America as they carry out programmes and projects to benefit their communities. To churches and individuals in the Netherlands we offer a range of opportunities to become involved in this work. We also challenge Dutch Christians and churches to think about their lifestyle and the way this affects the well-being of vulnerable communities around the world.
Tear’s partners work with the most vulnerable people in their communities, helping them to become more empowered, without distinction on grounds of ethnic origin, religion, gender or political conviction. The work Tear supports should ideally address people’s social, economic, physical and spiritual needs (integral mission).View website
