WHO WE ARE
BUILDING RESILIENCE TOGETHER
WHAT WE BELIEVE
We’re moved and inspired by our Christian belief that every person has intrinsic value, and that it’s our responsibility to advocate for the poor and marginalized without regard to race, creed or nationality and without adverse distinction of any kind. We serve on the basis of need alone. We strive to respect the culture and customs of the people we serve in order to preserve their humanity and dignity.
Communities are transformed when there is trust. With a shared set of values and a deep commitment to our partners, we believe mindsets shift and relationships strengthen — with God, self, others and nature — to build and maintain lasting networks of resilience.
WHAT WE DO
The underlying causes of poverty, injustice and marginalization are complex and often interconnected. That’s why our partnerships with local communities and leaders reach across the full range of economic, social, spiritual, and cultural interests, bringing everyone to the table to create comprehensive solutions that endure. When communities have both the agency to make their own decisions and access to needed resources, they can realize their full potential.
WHO WE ARE
We are a Christian relief and development organization with a vision to see all forms of human poverty ended worldwide.
