Helping others in Christian media ministries has always been a core foundational principle of who we are. For example, throughout the 1990s we helped over 30 Australian Christian community stations to get started — most of them are still going today!
Today, our 'helping' focus is on our neighbours in the Asia Pacific region. On behalf of UCB International, we're sharing our knowledge and experience to help Christian media organisations in our region become strong and influential forces for good in their nations.
We are committed to the process — each year we invest the equivalent of 10% of our non-specified income in this way (our tithe).
This assistance is focussed primarily on organisations who are still in the early stages of development: in Papua New Guinea, Bougainville, Cook Islands, Philippines, Thailand, Nepal, Vanuatu, Solomon Islands, Timor Lesté and Indonesia — these are just some of the places that have benefited from our technical, management, programming and other areas of expertise.
In some of these places, Christian radio is now well-established, expanding and thriving.
We’re also active in spreading the good news by helping our Asian and Pacific neighbours to produce their own versions of The Word for Today.
So when you support Vision you're not just reaching Australia — your impact goes well beyond our shores too!
