We believe in giving people in need a hand up, not a hand out. We help people provide for themselves and their families, creating hope for the future.

Caring and trustworthy


We treat everyone the same and with the utmost respect. We believe that we are all created in the image of God. Therefore, we seek to empower those already gifted, to free themselves from poverty.

Hope and Ambition

We never give up. We are determined and believe that things can be better, as they were first created to be. Jesus inspires hope and we will work for the rights of the world’s most oppressed people while inspiring those here in Scotland to Reflect, Act and Give in order to fulfil our vision.


We will be good stewards, both in terms of money and in our task to look after creation. Both are gifts of God, loaned to us to do good with and to improve.


We celebrate unity and value working in partnership. As part of Caritas, the Catholic Church’s global network of international aid and development charities, we stand with our sisters and brothers.


We are trusted by our supporters and the Church to make a difference in the world. We will work with honesty and are accountable to our project partners, those we serve, and to God. We always try to ensure that our words match our actions.
