Programs

We at Mercy Corps listen to locals and prioritize their most urgent needs. We fix market gaps to drive economic recovery. We bring groups together to negotiate conflict and strengthen civic participation. We think big, start small and take responsible risks to find solutions that benefit the greatest number of people. Mercy Corps focuses on the following areas to make the most change in families' lives: Agricultural development, Child protection, Climate change, Conflict management, Disaster risk reduction, Economic development, Emergency response, Environmental stewardship, Food security, Good governance, Health, Microfinance, Social innovations, Sport for change, Technology, Urban initiatives, Water, Women's empowerment, and Youth development. We at Mercy Corps work in failing states, conflict zones and countries recovering from natural disaster. We work in places where a child's life is often at risk, where a woman's education is usually ignored, and where a family's livelihood is never a sure thing.
