We are very proud to serve our Partners by proclaiming their dedication to biblical stewardship of the resources of money, time and expertise given to them by their stakeholders. As part of an occasional series, we will draw your attention to the work of some of our Partners. The Archbishop of Sydney’s Anglican Aid was one of our first Foundation Partners and was part of our original Pilot Program. Here’s a little sample of how they serve:
The Archbishop of Sydney’s Anglican Aid, is the relief and aid agency of the Sydney Anglican Church. They are committed to excel in the provision of Christian aid to vulnerable communities in Sydney and throughout the world.
To deliver aid, they partner with Churches in Sydney and with international, like-minded, on-the-ground, Christian partners who they know and trust.
Anglican Aid strives to let grace flow and to show the love of God, as shown in Christ, by financially supporting projects through three programs:
- Overseas Aid and Development - provides assistance in a range of health, education, agricultural, and capacity building initiatives. Gifts are tax deductible.
- Overseas Ministry - provides assistance towards theological education in the developing world.
- Community Care - provides assistance to socially disadvantaged and vulnerable communities in Australia and overseas including emergency relief. Gifts are tax deductible.
The Timion Counselling Project helps children living with disabilities in the townships of South Africa. A local language-speaking counsellor is employed to visit and support the mothers of disabled children, struggling to cope with their child’s disability, poverty, loneliness and isolation due to the cultural stigmas surrounding disability. Many of the mothers now meet together regularly to encourage one another.
Anglican Aid has a strong commitment to Biblical stewardship and integrity. Its accreditation with the CMA Standards Council verifies that they operate in an accountable manner, with good governance, appropriate stewardship and a commitment to truthful communication. Anglican Aid liaises directly with in-country project partners, monitor projects through visits, and receive regular project reports. 80% of expenditure goes directly to delivering aid.
