Emerge poverty free was founded in 1995as World Emergency Relief (WER). The name change, which took place in July 2011, better describes our mission: to break the cycle of poverty by enabling communities to address their needs and priorities themselves.
We work on the ground in 11 countries, supporting 24 projects throughout Sub Saharan Africa, Southeast Asia, Central America and the Caribbean.
As a charity our values are compassionate, determined, effective, honest and approachable, and our aim is to ensure that the poorest families and most vulnerable communities are given the chance to break the cycle of poverty themselves, knowing that projects can become self-sustainable, bringing about lasting change, that will last for generations.
