The solution to poverty is more
than physical, it’s spiritual too.


1 in 10

It's not okay that roughly 698 million people are living in extreme poverty.



It's not okay that most solutions to poverty focus only on the physical; neglecting the spiritual, social, and emotional dimensions of poverty.



It's not okay that so many resources go to providing 'handouts', which do little more than put a Band-Aid on a gaping wound.

Our approach is different. Instead of handouts, you’ll be creating sustainable development through the local church. But, it’s more than empowering people to help them overcome poverty. It’s about loving our neighbours and joining God in his Kingdom-building, life-giving mission.

With Your Help


Lives Impacted in 2021

You're stopping the cycle of poverty

Here’s the evidence

We believe God’s people are a hub of change. Join us in helping thousands of families live out their God-given potential as we did together last year.

Last Year
Farmers were able to feed their families by growing 2-3x more through better agriculture techniques
Women were able to start a new business, pay for school fees, or help in times of crisis through local Saving Groups
Local church leaders were helped to transform their communities through Biblically-based training

Here’s why:

1. Deep, lasting
