Who we are
Since EIUK was first established in 1978, we have been involved with development projects worldwide. We are a Christian charity who builds relationships with local churches in the areas we work in. Volunteers work on a project basis. Our projects build the self-reliance and dignity of those involved. They meet basic needs and use simple technology that’s easy to replicate.
We are part of an international organisation with national affiliates and project countries all over the world.
How we work
Emmanuel International works in Developing Countries world-wide through practical, caring action and culturally sensitive mission – to meet the needs of people practically, spiritually and emotionally. We go to some of the most needy areas of the world to serve people less fortunate than ourselves.
EI has a proven record of commitment, care and compassion in meeting the needs of hundreds of thousands of people regardless of their race, gender, colour or religion.
Our work is…
Our projects build the self-reliance and dignity of those involved.
Simple projects that meet basic needs and use simple technology, easy to replicate.
We attend to the needs of the whole person: spiritual, emotional, social and physical.
Seeking to meet the needs of the disadvantaged regardless of their race, gender, age or religion.
Working alongside the Christian church in countries that are in need to bring good news to the poor.
We are a member of Global Connnections. In common with other missionaries, we accept the Global Connections Code.
Our core values are also in line with the Guidelines for Charity Management of the Charity Commission.
What we do
We meet the needs of people regardless of their race, gender, colour or religion. We work under the authority of local churches because we are there to serve people, not dictate to them what we think they need. Our projects address the needs identified by the local church, in collaboration with the communities they serve.

Emmanuel International gives people in the UK opportunities to serve God by serving others around the world.
