Operation Agri is a charity which supports Christian-led rural and urban development projects in three continents, showing the love of Jesus in action by attacking the basic causes of poverty amongst some of the least fortunate people in the world, regardless of their religious, ethnic and cultural backgrounds.
OA supports sustainable development work such as agricultural centres to assist farmers, and irrigation schemes for rural communities. OA also supports projects that bring lasting improvement to people's lives, such as basic health clinics, and women's empowerment groups in urban slums.
Coming soon... our 2014 Appeal - Plants for Life and Light
"Plants for Life and Light" is our Appeal for 2014, to be launched in May. The DVD will feature two very different projects:
- Farmers in Tanzania are learning practical methods to grow better crops, improving soil fertility using local resources. This is providing more food, plus produce to sell, increasing health and incomes. - Afghan villagers are building water channels and power houses, to harness mountain streams and install small-scale hydroelectric plants. This generates electricity to provide their homes with reliable light for dark evenings.
We are working on these materials at the moment, but you can pre-order them by following this link for delivery in late April. The pack will also be available to buy at the 2014 Baptist Assembly.

Our Presents with a Purpose brochure is not just useful for Christmas - birthdays and anniversaries or any other occasion are good times to give a gift that benefits the poor. The current range of gifts is listed on the Presents pages of this site (click on 'Presents with a Purpose' below).
