Emerge Poverty Free

Emerge poverty free is an international development charity. We fight poverty by helping local people to get the skills and tools to fight poverty themselves.

  • Mission statement

    Poverty is a gross injustice. It is a prison into which millions are born each day. Without help few will ever be free. Emerge poverty free believes that every child should be free to follow their own path in life rather than a destiny fixed by where they are born. Emerge poverty free believes that every person has the right to reach their full potential poverty free. Emerge poverty free works through local partners to relieve suffering and hardship anywhere in the world caused by natural disaster, conflict and economic or social circumstance. The work is collaborative with local non-profit organisations which have both an awareness of local needs and the vision to provide sustainable solutions. Our mission is to empower people to help themselves through education, cooperation and sustainability. In addition to support the mission we provide safe water, food, shelter and health supplies.
