Program areas at Mercy Corps

Humanitarian assistance -- recovery: After a crisis, Mercy Corps works to meet people's immediate needs while sparking recovery through tools that help them build a stronger future. This year Mercy Corps' climate resilience work tackled the human impacts of climate change-particularly disappearing livelihoods, rising food insecurity, increasing disaster and escalating violence-by empowering communities to adapt, innovate and thrive. In addition, we sought to leverage technology, breakthrough solutions and new models for working for maximum social impact around the world. We see innovation as critical to achieving the global change we need to create more secure, just and productive communities.

Civil society and education: Mercy Corps fosters good governance at every level to support development in communities grappling with complex problems, such as conflict, famine, and climate change. We also work to bring access to education to women and men of all ages and economic groups to help ensure a better future for all.

Livelihood: Mercy Corps helps build strong local economies by investing in the jobs and markets that serve as the best engines of long-term recovery. Across the globe, especially in countries affected by crises or conflict, Mercy Corps works with individuals and communities to achieve financial inclusion and independence. Particularly in the Middle East and Africa, we connect young people to the resources they need to build demand-driven skills and to land and keep jobs. We blend non-formal education, vocational and soft skills training, apprenticeships, mentoring and access to financial and technological services, as well as address the social and cultural norms which often prevent young people from accessing work opportunities.
