Church Partnerships

As an organisation that was originally founded as an Anglican charity, the church continues to play a vital role in the communities in which we work and is often the primary, or indeed only, trusted organisation in many marginalised communities. 

Church partnership in East Africa and our association with the Anglican Church provides outstanding community reach and gives us vital access to facilities. In Kenya today, for example, over 82% of the population are Christian, of whom at least 4,500,000 are Anglicans. 

As a Christian charity organisation, Five Talents also has links to a number of UK dioceses, and we're always on the lookout to establish relationships with UK churches. If you'd like to discuss arranging a donation, holding an event, or having a member of our team come and visit your congregation, please do get in touch.
 


Our Principles

Five Talents was originally founded by the Anglican church as a Christian charity, and we continue to work through church partners overseas, serving people of all faiths and none.

By supporting a Christian microfinance organisation, your mission committee and church can demonstrate:

  • A hand up, not just a hand out.
  • Support for enterprise, not just aid.
  • Sustainable solutions, not just maintenance mode.
  • Support for women, who represent two thirds of our clients.

All this, in poor and marginalised communities of the world, where the church is ministering at the front line. 


"I AM DELIGHTED TO BE INVOLVED WITH THE FIVE TALENTS MICROFINANCE INITIATIVE BECAUSE I HAVE EXPERIENCED FIRST HAND THE DIFFERENCE THESE SMALL LOANS MAKE TO INDIVIDUALS, FAMILIES & WHOLE COMMUNITIES"
