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.
Global Hope Network International (GHNI) – GHNI’s core focus is helping poor villagers around the world transform themselves sustainably and holistically through Transformational Community Development (TCD). This method offers a hand up, rather than a hand out, through knowledge transfer to village leaders. Working together, villagers are empowered to find solutions to the five key areas known to contribute to cyclical poverty — clean, accessible water; locally grown nutritious food; wellness education to prevent disease; education for all children; sustainable family income generation.
Hagar New Zealand– Hagar is a global humanitarian nonprofit organization offering services and assistance to people who have escaped sexual slavery and/or human trafficking.
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.
Fred Hollows Foundation NZ – Kiwi eye surgeon Fred Hollows dedicated his life to restoring sight to the needlessly blind. The Fred Hollows Foundation NZ aims to put an end to avoidable blindness in the Pacific (by restoring sight, training doctors and nurses, strengthening health systems, and driving innovation and research).
UNICEF – UNICEF works in over 190 countries and territories to save children’s lives, to defend their rights, and to help them fulfil their potential.
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.
