The following are some of the organisations that Better World Initiative has supported:

Effective Altruism NZ – reducing poverty by donating to independently-vetted, highly effective charities, that have strong evidence they save and improve lives.

Bright Hope World – a Christian-based, humanitarian organisation based in New Zealand that aims to see lives changed and the poor empowered to be independent. Bright Hope World has partnerships in more than 20 countries, directly impacting over 5,000 families.

Kiva – a non-profit organization with a mission to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty. Leveraging the internet and a worldwide network of microfinance institutions, Kiva lets individuals lend as little as $25 to help create opportunity around the world. We support the work of Kiva.

World Vision – a Christian humanitarian organisation dedicated to working with children, families and communities to overcome extreme poverty and injustice. Motivated by faith in Jesus Christ, they serve alongside the poor and oppressed as a demonstration of God’s unconditional love for all people. World Vision serves all people regardless of religion, race, ethnicity or gender. AguaYaku is a Bolivian project that teaches simple, inexpensive water well-drilling techniques and other appropriate technologies that improve the health, welfare, and economic production of rural farm families and communities. “Agua Yaku” is derived from the Spanish and Quechua words for “water.”

TEAR Fund – another great NZ aid organisation. The purpose of TEAR Fund is to glorify God by extending his kingdom in ministry to the poor, oppressed and disadvantaged, and to encourage God’s people in New Zealand to live out the values and principles of his kingdom, by sharing with those in need.
