Mission Statement



The purposes for which TEAR Australia has been established, are summed up in its Mission Statement:

TEAR Australia is a Christian development, relief and advocacy organisation responding to global poverty and injustice.

Our vision is for a just and compassionate world in which all people have the opportunity to achieve their God-given potential.

We will:

  • inform, challenge and empower Australian Christians to make biblically-shaped responses to poverty and injustice.
  • support community-based Christian groups, churches and mission organisations around the world as they work holistically with poor communities in development, relief and advocacy.
  • adhere to biblical teaching, and evaluate our work and attitudes in its light.
  • maintain a low-cost administration regime in order to maximize the funds allocated to project partners.
