To tackle the root causes of poverty we need to understand them. Through research and learning from our partners’ work on the ground, Tearfund develops recommendations to address some of the drivers of poverty. We use this research to make policy recommendations for governments and other decision-makers, as well as developing good practice resources to help people to lift themselves out of poverty.
We have priority areas for our global advocacy but we also support partners to conduct research and develop recommendations on a wider range of issues. As well as our working directly with policy-makers, we also work with individuals and churches across the world who are taking action and making their voices heard by global leaders.
