because of the opportunity for a Primary School education

Around the world in many developing countries children are marginalised and cannot help themselves. As a result, many of the Global Concern development programs focus on children. In the last 12 months 1,295 children in Bangladesh, India, Kenya and Nepal have received a Primary School education through the Sponsorship Program and we are very grateful for the many

child sponsors who have made this possible. In

able to smile

because of the opportunity to receive basic health education

India & Bangladesh five schools provide the children with a daily nutritious meal so their families no longer need to send them out to work for food and this encourages children to stay in school. In the India school all education is in English. Child Protection training has been introduced into all the schools this year with ongoing training of staff to further protect these children. In India a health awareness program has been introduced which is training 300 mothers and fathers in child care and development. In the Health Program in Togo, 450 children have been vaccinated and have been trained (along with their mothers) in better health & hygiene practices.

The Food Security Program in

northern Malawi and eastern Zambia has, this year, trained 2,645 men and

women in more than 80 villages in modern farming methods, climate change, nutrition and irrigation, with the addition of income generation activities such as chicken and goat breeding in some villages. In just 12 months


families who previously lived in poverty

with limited food resources have been able to increase their income and store food for the future as well as providing nutritious food to their children. The health and well-being of families (with 47% being children) is also improving as a direct result of building 65 toilets and 103

water wells and educating in health

and hygiene practices. This year child protection training has been included as well as assisting 38 women's support

groups and including 139 people with

disabilities in the program.

Our aim is to give men and women the tools so that they can lift themselves out of poverty

What joy it gives people when they can see “ the light at the end of the tunnel”. For many of the poor around the world, all they need is an opportunity and this year you have been instrumental in helping Global Concern increase the joy of the poor as they begin to find a way out of their misery ... from the slums of Bangladesh, a low-caste village in India, prisons in Ethiopia and impoverished villages in Malawi, Zambia and Togo. In 2013 an evaluation was done of the Bangladesh Community Development Program over the last 10 years to see what long-term difference it had made to educate children, train women in sewing and help men own their own riskshaw.

The results were amazing!

97% of the people evaluated recorded an increase in levels of income. (54% had not been earning any regular income before the program commenced). As the result of increased income 24% started their own business, 14% found permanent employment 6% bought land or a house and 17% of families were able to send their children for further education. 88% of the students surveyed completed Secondary School, 18% completed tertiary education and 24% reported finding permanent employment. An overwhelming result was that the people surveyed have reported that they are now “living well” . Many, many thanks for your financial support which has made all this possible and has literally

changed lives!!!
