Who We Are

Collective Calling is committed to addressing the pressing issues of homelessness in Spain and supporting street children in Tanzania. Our mission is to provide comprehensive assistance, empowerment, and long-term solutions to individuals and communities affected by homelessness, poverty, and social exclusion.


Our vision is a world free from the scourge of homelessness, where every individual has a place to call home and feels secure and supported. We aspire to eradicate global homelessness, working tirelessly to ensure that no one is left without shelter or basic human needs.

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.

Jer 29:11-13

Who We Are
The Founders and the Directors of Collective Calling are Christian and our faith in Jesus Christ is central to who we are. We follow Jesus' example by being a present, visible and practical expression of God's love for the world, as we serve alongside the poor and the oppressed. Our faith is the fuel that leads us to serving children and parents regardless of their faith.
We give priority to people over money, structures, bureaucracy and systems.

We conduct our work in a way that upholds the dignity and intrinsic worth of every individual, from our volunteers, donors and of course to the poor and oppressed. We celebrate the uniqueness of every human being and cultural diversity.

We encourage the personal, professional and spiritual development of all that are a part of the Collective Calling family.
The resources that are given to Collective Calling are not ours, they are a trust from God through donors designated to the poor and oppressed.

We are an open book and speak factually and honestly. We demand a consistency between what we say and what we do. We convey a public image that aligns with reality.

We are also stewards of God´s creation, we care for the Earth and act in a way that helps protect the environment throughout our programs.
We are part of a larger global network of likened NGOs leading the charge within the family reunification sector across Africa. Our partnership brings expertise and accountability to our programming.

Where possible we maintain an openness to collaborate with governments and other like minded NGOs to further our mission of serving the poor and oppressed.
