Emmanuel International was founded in 1975 to give people in the UK opportunities to serve God by serving others around the world.
John Carroll a former vicar of Christ Church set up the UK affiliate. His daughter (Joy) was one of the first volunteers.
We take people of all ages, skill levels and backgrounds.
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.
The work is...
Self-Reliant - Our projects build the self-reliance and dignity of those involved.
Grass Roots - Our projects meet basic needs and use simple technology, easy to replicate.
Holistic - We attend to the needs of the whole person: spiritual, emotional, social and physical.
