Presbyterian World Service & Development

About Us

In a world with too much poverty, injustice and oppression concentrated in nations of the South, we recognize the interrelation between our affluence and the suffering of others. 

We undertake service among organizations seeking to transform their communities by promoting justice, peace and the integrity of creation.

We are committed to development, involving men and women in activities that restore human dignity, ease the pain of want, promote self-help and encourage community cooperation that benefits all members. Development activities will always be sensitive to gender issues, empowerment of the marginalized and the protection of human rights.

We undertake to promote development education and awareness within Canada, sensitizing and connecting Presbyterian men, women and children to the needs of others throughout the world.
