TEAR Australia is a movement of Christians in Australia responding to the needs of poor communities around the world. Our motivation comes from our belief that God loves all people, and in Christ offers them the opportunity of a new life. We believe that God is just, and has particular care for the poor and those who suffer as victims of injustice.
The Big Table partners with TEAR who, in turn, work in partnership with other Christian groups, including churches, relief and development agencies and community-based organisations, who are working with the poor in their communities. TEAR seeks to build effective relationships with these partners, grounded in mutual respect, trust and accountability.
Priority is given to those programs that strive to involve the most marginalised and exploited members of each community, regardless of their religious or political beliefs.
