Our Passion

We are Christians passionate about ending poverty, following Jesus where the need is greatest.

The poor are precious to God

Poverty is a result of the world’s brokenness and ruptured relationships with God, between people, and with creation. We fight suffering and despair because we believe every person bears God’s image and is loved by Him.

We follow Jesus

By His example and His words, Jesus calls His people to serve those most deeply hurt by the brokenness of the world. We follow Jesus to where the need is greatest so we can serve in the centre of God’s calling.

God uses the Church to transform lives

God declares that He will someday restore creation and reconcile people to Him through Christ. We empower the Church today to declare the presence of God, through transformed lives, restored families, reconciled communities, and renewed futures.

Why work with the local church?

The local church is more than just another organization. It is God’s way of continuing his mission of restoration on Earth. Additionally, it has:

  • Reach

    Local churches are found everywhere – from big cities to the most desolate regions.

  • Access

    The church is deeply embedded in the community, with wide networks and access to resources.

  • Cultural Understanding

    The church understands local customs, needs and attitudes.

  • Trust & Influence

    Churches and pastors are trusted leaders in the community, who can influence mindsets and create lasting change.

  • Longevity

    The church remains long after outside non-government organizations leave.


Through the church, we not only address physical poverty. But  emotional, social and spiritual poverty as well. Through the local church, we create lasting change.
