A red banner decorated with white stars reads 'The Big Church Sing Christmas Special'

Across the globe, All We Can, together with the Methodist Church in Britain, have been walking alongside the most vulnerable as they seek to combat the effects of coronavirus.

‘Every person’s potential fulfilled.’ Today, we celebrate World Children’s Day. This day has deep significance as it marks when the UN General Assembly adopted the Declaration of the Rights of the Child (1959) and the Convention on the Rights of the Child (1989).

Today, on World Teachers’ Day, we celebrate and thank teachers around the world – be they in classrooms, communities or churches. The teachers in my life are some of the most precious people to me, because they helped challenge me to become who I am today. Their words still echo down the years motivating me […]

One of All We Can's local partner staff talks to a Village Chairman in Ethiopia, standing outside a homestead with a red and teal front door.

‘Angela, join in and work alongside your aunt! One finger can’t kill lice!’ I can still remember my grandmother, Gogo Lisnet telling me in my mother tongue.  I had been watching my aunt Ines (she wasn’t that much older than me) struggle to winnow maize for the mill.  My grandmother seemed to have an adage […]

In the first of a series of blogs on All We Can’s values, Chief Executive Graeme Hodge talks about love songs and life-changing work. If given the category of love songs and power ballads, most of us on a Zoom quiz would probably do fairly well at naming at least a few songs and their lyrics. […]

An community groups meeting

Our nation’s attempts to do right for people facing daily, vicious, poverty around the world, face a new ‘Everest’: coronavirus. This Covid-19-driven change offers a challenge, I think, to all of us who would stand with our poverty-affected global neighbours: before you double your efforts, rethink your route.   The All We Can movement is […]
