Who is Tzedek?

Tzedek is the UK Jewish Community International Development Charity, who bring their community together to alleviate poverty across all denominations.
The world Banks definition of extreme poverty is those who are living on less than $1.90 a day. This charity works tirelessly to empower communities to earn more than that figure and lift themselves above the poverty line.
The charity works with all races, faiths and cultures, and particularly women, children and the most vulnerable. They work closely with local communities to apply a sustainable approach to international development work through three focus areas which encourage their capabilities to earn, live and educate themselves.

Their Mission:

To build strong partnerships, deep connections, and future leaders to create sustainable, long term change. The charity’s sustainable development work is in livelihoods, education and youth empowerment. Their livelihoods work includes projects in microfinance, vocational skills training, agriculture and livestock, which also impact non-Jewish beneficiaries overseas.

“We all have an obligation to help those who live on the other side of the world and don’t know where their next meal is coming from, can’t afford a roof over their heads, or have to make their children work instead of going to school. Tzedek has a unique approach to sustainability and some really great innovative ideas of how to bring people out of extreme poverty.”
