Village Package

Village Package



Help a community transform their village. This gift helps to improve the lives of people in a community facing the challenge of poverty. It does this through a range of development activities and programs that will make a difference for generations to come.

How your gift helps

TEAR Australia supports work in villages that draws people together and creates opportunities for them to drive their own community change. These projects are designed to build on existing strengths and resources to solve community problems.

The Village Package may include:

  • Formation of Self-Help Groups that access literacy classes, savings schemes and skills-based training
  • Construction of toilets and sanitation and hygiene education
  • Improved access to water
  • Agricultural training
  • Provision of livestock like chickens or goats and training in how to keep them
  • Community health programs
  • Gender and human rights training for men and women.

Note: Instead of a gift card, you'll receive an information booklet and certificate, as well as a follow-up report.
