ADRA’s purpose is to serve humanity so all may live as God intended – free from poverty and injustice. We serve where and when it is needed most, partnering with vulnerable communities to create positive and sustainable change.
Key Areas of Development
All ADRAs work focuses on four key areas of development. By working alongside communities to improve each of these areas we see a lasting impact which helps break cycles of poverty and injustice.
Partnering for Impact
One of our current major projects is our SHAPE programme we are implementing across four international countries. This project is helping families overcome poverty, build resiliency and live thriving lives.
The focus of our work is Sustainable Health, Agriculture, Protection and Empowerment (SHAPE).
Where we Work
Building Stronger Communities
We serve communities here in New Zealand by partnering with Adventist churches. We run a range of programs designed to meet a specific need relevant to the local community.
Providing Clean Water to Communities
Clean water saves lives, this is why we’re providing clean water and hygiene facilities to improve the health of children and families in Vanuatu.
Improving Food Security
We work alongside farming communities in Timor-Leste to help strengthen their business and agricultural skills. Our project helps improve income, food security, and overall well-being for families.
