Our vision is to see women in contexts of poverty and exclusion flourish in their image-bearing of God

Our Mission

As a Christian women’s foundation, ADM provides impact funding, capacity building and networking support to aligned partners in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and the Pacific.

Why we ‘do’ Mercy & Justice

Since 1891 ADM has served in mercy and justice ministries to bring God’s love holistically to people in need.

Mercy and justice are at the core of God’s character, and at the core of ADM’s expression of God’s love in the world. Through our Mercy & Justice Ministries we aim to:

  • Meet vulnerable women in their place of need and provide economic, social and spiritual support to rise up from this place

  • Seek to address the systems that cause the diminishment of women

  • Enable Christian women to do good works with a sustainable impact

  • Point women to God as the ultimate source of mercy and justice

We have a great God who is reconciling the world to himself through Christ’s death and resurrection. He has demonstrated his love through Christ at the cross and continues to reveal his love as the gospel is proclaimed and Christians serve and love others.

We trust in Jesus’ work which frees us to serve God in His mission. We seek to address the consequences of sin in diminishing women’s image-bearing of God. We seek to be agents of God in the world to act for mercy and justice.

He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.
— Micah 6:8
