Collectively, We Are Making A Difference

We are a grassroots, non-profit, Spanish registered, non-governmental organisation (NGO) and we believe that the cure to poverty begins with serving in a manner that doesn´t create dependency, but empowers in a way that creates opportunities for people to be who they were created to be. We are an operational NGO, meaning we plan and carry out boots-on-the-ground projects to accomplish our objectives. This requires a great deal of careful planning, communication, and local involvement for each project. We carry out our mission through two key locations, Spain & Tanzania. 

Centre of Hope

We are currently completing the construction of the “Centre of Hope” in the town of Kasulu, Tanzania. During the summer 2018 mission, 94 “street children” were discovered to be living on the streets, some as young as 5yrs. The “Centre of Hope” are the steps being taken in collaboration with ANCO, that will provide food & shelter, whilst empowering, equipping and educating these children to give them an opportunity to become who they were created to be.

If you would like to give towards this project, please visit the “how to donate” page for various ways to can give.

How We Help

Mission Experience 2019

Our mission experience has been created to mobilise Collective Calling partners to go out into the world and help educate, equip and empower 32 children residing in the “Centre of Hope”, situated in the town of Kasulu, Tanzania.

Local Community Support

Meet one of the families that we are currently supporting in the town of Kasulu, Tanzania. When we first met this family, we were touched by the motivation that the three blind children had to help contribute towards to the family household. After an afternoon of singing, talking and getting to know each other, we discovered that the children had a few great ideas on how they could help generate money for the family. Watch the following video to see how we initially empowered this family.

Lent Appeal
This year Bishop John chose Collective Calling as the overseas recipient. (See The European Anglican Summer 2016 and Spring 2017). Founded by Paul and Gemma Carr from the Costa del Sol West Anglican Church and sponsored in Scotland by Fr William Mounsey, a priest of the Diocese of Edinburgh and regular locum in the Diocese in Europe, Collective Calling’s work among refugees and migrants was supported by over sixty congregations in Edinburgh, Lothian and the Scottish Borders. (See page 4 on “read more”)

Collective Calling were invited to attend this years Diocese of Europe Synod, Spain. We had the opportunity to speak about the lives and experiences of refugees as we have seen it through our time working in refugee crisis. Since then we are honored to have been chosen by St Vincent’s Anglican Church, Portugal for this years Lent appeal.

St Vincent´s Church is part of the Diocese in Europe (a diocese of the Church of England) and a member of the Anglican Communion. The Chaplaincy has been serving the Algarve since 1963: you can read about their history on the About of their the Chaplaincy page. They are a diverse group of people united in seeking to follow Christ.

Diocese in Europe
Last Summer, The European Anglican featured the story of Paul Carr who, supported by a group of churches on Spain’s Costa del Sol, embarked on a project to work with refugees and migrants in Greece. Here is his latest news. (Pg 7 on “read more”)
