Concern Worldwide is a non-governmental, international, humanitarian organisation dedicated to the reduction of suffering and working towards the ultimate elimination of extreme poverty in the world’s poorest countries.

What Concern does

Concern’s mission is to help people living in extreme poverty achieve major improvements in their lives. Concern works with the poor themselves, and with local and international partners who share the organisation’s vision, to create just and peaceful societies where the poor can exercise their fundamental rights.


Concern is committed to identifying new and innovative approaches to meet the needs of our target group. It has already achieved some significant success in developing innovative approaches to problems. One of the best examples of this is Concern’s approach to tackling acute malnutrition through Community-based Therapeutic Care (CTC), in partnership with Valid International.
