Help ending extreme poverty become more than #Unfortunately

More than 1 in 10 people globally live on less than $1.90 a day. Put another way, over 800 million people lack the necessities we take for granted: enough food, clean water, adequate shelter, and access to a quality education.

While the crisis is massive, ending extreme poverty is possible in our lifetime, if we all work together. Generous donations from people like you bring life-changing aid to the world’s most vulnerable people. Join us today.

Who We Are

Concern Worldwide is a global humanitarian organization dedicated to ending extreme poverty, whatever it takes.

We believe in a world where everyone has access to the opportunities needed to live a long, healthy and creative life. Since 1968, we have worked with some of the world's most vulnerable, hardest to reach communities to achieve lasting change without ongoing intervention from Concern.

What We Do

Extreme poverty has lots of causes, so ending it requires lots of solutions. That's where we come in.

We work hand-in-hand with local organizations, volunteers, and community members to design practical, sustainable programs in six key areas. We stay until the job is done.

    & Displacement

  2. Health
    & Nutrition

  3. Climate Change Response
    & Resilience

  4. Livelihoods
    & Financial Empowerment

  5. Gender Equality
