Together for a just world

Norwegian Church Aid works with people and organisations around the world in their struggle to eradicate poverty and injustice. We help those whose needs are greatest, regardless of race, creed, political or religious affiliation.

How we work

Saving lives

The poorest are always hit the hardest in times of crisis. Many lives are lost each year due to the lack of clean water in emergencies. This is why we provide clean water first. Together we save lives and protect the vulnerable.

Changing lives

To be poor is to lack opportunity. But where there are challenges, we also find the best solutions. Permanent access to clean water is one of them. Together we can help people find their own way out of poverty.

Changing the world

Poverty is injustice. There is enough water, food and work for all, but global structures help keep the rich rich and the poor poor. Together we can give a voice to the voiceless where decisions are made.

For girls like Tigist, the difference has been remarkable: now she can attend school.
