Welcome to the TILZ website

Tearfund is a Christian relief and development agency working to see millions of people released from material and spiritual poverty through a network of local churches. Over the last 40 years, we have been gathering knowledge and sharing it with those who want to see poverty reduced and justice restored across the world. 

Our resources are available to download free of charge including training materials, case studies, our international magazine Footsteps and more. We hope that you will join the millions of people who have already benefited from these materials and will use what you find to enhance your own work.
