MRDF exists to bring about significant and long term change in some of the world's most marginalised communities, and to empower people to change structures that are oppressive and unjust.
To fulfil this charge, MRDF has three core priorities:
•contribute to the eradication of poverty, through transformative long-term development, and disaster relief
•increase the effectiveness of overseas partner organisations to contribute to the eradication of poverty
•challenge the causes of poverty and injustice through education and advocacy, both in the UK and overseas.
MRDF works with marginalised people on the basis of their need and not their religion or beliefs.
