SCIAF is the official aid and international development charity of the Catholic Church in Scotland. SCIAF works in 16 countries across Asia, Africa and Latin America, to help reduce poverty.
SCIAF's vision is of a world in which all people, especially the poor and oppressed, have the opportunity and the means to live life, and live it to the full.
SCIAF's mission statement is: “Inspired by the Gospel called to build a just world, SCIAF challenges injustice by strengthening poor and oppressed people and by stimulating the Scottish public to share in our common struggle for human dignity.”
The organisational objectives which are set to achieve this are:
• to engage in partnerships that deliver effective, sustainable projects which contribute to reducing poverty and injustice;
• to provide a timely and effective response to humanitarian crises in collaboration with our long term partners and the Caritas Internationalis confederation of Catholic relief, development and social service organisations;
• to develop and deliver effective advocacy work that directly addresses the root causes of poverty and injustice; and
• to build partnerships for international development with schools, parishes, the media and the general public.
