Make an eternal impact

You can help end extreme poverty.

Join a passionate group of people who are changing lives by meeting the physical and spiritual needs of families living in extreme poverty.

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


1 in 10 suffering

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


Partial solutions

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


Reliance on handouts

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. 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.
