About us

Tear brings people together in the fight against poverty and injustice. We aim to help the people in the world who are in the greatest need. We do this by identifying the places of greatest poverty and injustice. In collaboration with partner organisations in Africa, Latin America, Europe and Asia we support development, relief and advocacy programmes and projects. Tear's partners work with marginalised and vulnerable groups regardless of race, religion, gender, ethnic origin or political persuasion.

We believe that local churches can play a vital role in the fight against poverty and injustice. In collaboration with the partner organisations Tear involves local churches wherever this is possible, envisioning, training and equipping to develop and rebuild their communities.

We offer people in the Netherlands opportunities to become involved in this work. We help local churches (in the Netherlands and in the southern hemisphere) to work together in fighting poverty and injustice in sustainable ways, learning from each other. We do this in the joyous and hopeful anticipation of the Kingdom of God. We also challenge Dutch Christians and churches to think about their lifestyle and the way this affects the well-being of vulnerable communities around the world.

How we do it

Tear support programmes and projects run by partner organisations in Africa, Latin America, Europe and Asia with whom we share our values. In most cases these implementation partners are faith based national or international NGO’s.

In collaboration with these partners Tear engages with local churches wherever this is possible. We envision and support them to eradicate poverty, to fight against injustice and transform their communities. 

We are professional and accountable. We are committed to being accountable to project participants, communities, partners, supporters and donors for the work we undertake and for the resources entrusted to us. We are signatories to the Red Cross Code of Conduct and are certified against several quality management systems.
