Working in partnership

Tearfund works in partnership with communities, churches and local organisations in more than 50 countries. Our country teams use their expertise and local knowledge to decide which organisations we partner with, and establish partnership agreements in order to effectively deliver our programmes.

We select partners based on how they can contribute to the achievement of the Tearfund Country Strategy. This strategy is designed to make the best use of both Tearfund’s and our partners’ resources in responding to the needs of those living in poverty.
