About Us

BREAD AUSTRALIA – Barnabas Relief Education and Development – is a  humanitarian aid agency dedicated to serving vulnerable communities. Working in partnership with Australians, we focus on initiatives that seek to improve the lives of oppressed and marginalised minorities.

BREAD AUSTRALIA and its partners are committed to international standards of good practice and conduct in relief/development, and its responses will conform to such recognised standards as Sphere Standards and ACNC External Conduct Standards. Furthermore, BREAD strives to build local capacities through conducting participatory planning processes, inclusion of vulnerable groups, a focus on cultural appropriateness, and providing assistance in restoring vital norms such as schools, hospitals, income generation, recreation, and other meaningful community interventions.

BREAD AUSTRALIA exists to equip and inspire Australians to defend the rights of the poor and needy, by seeking to unite and empower the local partners to respond to wholistic needs of the vulnerable communities.
