Dorcas invests in sustainable change in the lives of people who are marginalised. In the event of poverty, exclusion or a crisis, we create opportunities for them to flourish. This is how we follow Jesus Christ.

Disability expertise: 

No specific expertise on disability, but inclusion is one of the cornerstones of a flourishing community and demands for mainstreaming in all our programmes.

Focus areas: 

Food Security and Livelihoods (FSL), Non-Food Item (NFI), Shelter, Protection, Mental Health and Psychosocial Support (MHPSS), Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH), Entrepreneurship, Employability, social empowerment, social and economic inclusion.
