Throughout the world there are thousands of small organisations working on the ground in their regions, helping people to develop sustainable livelihoods.
These organisations and groups seldom receive publicity and often struggle to connect with potential donors. To help with this, Safe World partners with grassroots organisations and groups working with women and children.
We help our Field Partners by highlighting their work, and encouraging public support for individual grassroot projects.
