Find Your Feet
Find Your Feet was founded in 1960 by the journalist Carol Martin, in response to the plight of Eastern European refugees after the Hungarian uprising. She was particularly concerned that families were suffering from hunger and malnutrition and was motivated to do something about it.
Over the 55 year history they have evolved from being an organisation that provides humanitarian aid to one that supports long-term rural development projects. Find Your Feet has also shifted their geographical focus from Europe to Asia and Africa where they believe the need is greatest.
Find Your Feet has worked in numerous countries over the years, but in 2004 they chose to focus their work in northern India and Malawi so as to maximise impact and in 2011 they expanded their reach to start work with families in Nepal and Zimbabwe.
Find Your Feet has evolved considerably during the 55 year history, but the vision remains the same. Just as it's founder Carol Martin did, they believe in social justice; a world in which everyone has the right to build a future free from hunger and poverty.

Their approach is not to dictate how the people they work with tackle the poverty they face. Instead, Find Your Feet helps them to decide how they want to build a better future. This means that Find Your Feet doesn't give handouts. Find Your Feet listens and provides people with the skills, training and confidence they need to help themselves.See more
