Tearfund launches new impact investment

Tearfund is delighted to announce the launch of our latest impact investment with Regenesys BPO. Together with a range of Australian and international investors, this latest opportunity seeks to build upon the amazingly dedicated and faithful work of the Regenesys team in helping provide restoration and healing through work and opportunity for survivors of sexual exploitation and slavery.

We've continued to learn, continued to push, continued to make a lot of mistakes along the way, and then to be interrupted last year through COVID, but we are glad to be here today and glad to be able to finally close the deal with Regenesys.

Phil Wilkerson International Program Director, Tearfund Australia

Tearfund CEO Matthew Maury, said: ‘This has been a long term vision for us at Tearfund to step into the impact investment space as we continually work to find new methodologies and new resourcing to address poverty and injustice. We are really excited about what this new partnership represents in terms of the redemptive and restorative impact in people’s lives and we look forward to working together to grow that impact into the future’.

Tearfund's Impact Investing Program is led by Ivan Chew, who has worked closely with co-investors and Regenesys. His work was instrumental in the process.

Speaking at the launch, Regenesys BPO founder and CEO Sam Dharmapala, thanked Tearfund and the other investors for their support: ‘Just knowing that behind this organisation called Regenesys is something bigger, investing in the lives of our employees and wanting to see restoration and redemption happen in countless lives. Not just in the Philippines, but across the world. So what this loan means is that we can expand to Nepal. We can develop new services, so the funds will be put to good use’.

Along this journey we have come across a lot of organisations that have said they want to support us, but the thing that always held us back was finding individuals and organisations with the right character. That would really see us through all the ups and downs of running a business.
