About World Concern

World Concern is a Christian global relief and development agency extending opportunity and hope to people facing extreme poverty.

With your partnership, World Concern’s efforts reach deep into the most remote corners of the planet, where climate and geography, societal instability and scarce infrastructure create incredible challenges to the people living there.

We seek to fully immerse ourselves in the interests of the people we serve, enabling us to plan, scale, and develop programs tailored to each particular community’s circumstance.

We ask the people we help to serve with us — building the programs they need — enabling them to realize their God-given potential.

Our Mission

World Concern partners to transform the lives of poor and marginalized people through disaster response and sustainable community development. The love of Christ compels us to pursue reconciliation and equip those we serve, so that they may in turn share with others.

Our Values

Christ is our foundation. He is at the center of everything we do. Striving to be like Him, we love, value, and respect all people equally, pursuing reconciliation with God and praying for those we serve.

We are responsible stewards of our resources, upholding honesty and transparency as we work to implement our programs around the world.

We are servant leaders who demonstrate excellence in our interactions with beneficiaries and partners, developing competent leaders committed to the mission of holistic transformation.

We follow Christ's example of service, showing dignity to every person, meeting their needs, and putting the needs of others before our own.

  • "World Concern gives me an incredible opportunity to contribute, learn and grow, today as much as on the day I joined in 2003. I find meaning in working with our national and expat team to reduce preventable deaths of young children, protect the most vulnerable, and build capacity with local organizations. Working with World Concern means working with dedicated and honest people. I love working here." Jacob Engelage Country Director, Myanmar

  • "I work for World Concern because of the organization's passion for championing the role of the local church in bringing justice, transforming people's lives and overcoming global poverty. I have found World Concern to be a listening, caring partner of the people they serve, helping them to rise out of poverty by working alongside them and making use of their own resourcefulness and determination. Moreover, I strongly associate with the organization's values. I feel amply supported and welcomed!" Humphrey Kimani Livelihoods and Food Security Technical Specialist

  • "Serving at World Concern is a privilege. I get to be part of a worldwide team of professionals committed to sharing the love of Christ with "the least of these" in Asia, Africa and Haiti. Because I support our national staff, I am able to make a difference in the lives of individual women who would otherwise have little hope for themselves or their families. " Susan Talbot Senior Desk Officer

  • "I always wanted to serve Jesus and work in a Christian Organization. World Concern gives an appropriate platform to serve God in all what we do. We have the freedom to develop culturally appropriate programs together with the communities so we are able to make a difference in the lives of most vulnerable women and children." Selina Prem Country Director, Sri Lanka

  • "Disaster response can often be shortsighted, focusing only on immediate physical needs and not addressing underlying causes. Working with World Concern means that I am a part of a greater transformational work within a community, addressing both immediate life-saving needs and continuing the development journey towards resilience." Chris Sheach Director, Disaster Response

  • "Working with people is a lifestyle rather than a job to me. A lifestyle that seeks to bring communities closer to God. We witness individuals make choices to follow Christ as a results we see improvement in relationships. They also achieve their goals, access good health and clean water, produce their own food and they give testimonies of Christ love for them every day." Irene Nyambura Coordinator, OVT South Sudan
