Together, we're helping communities break free from poverty.
Today, over 652 million people live in extreme poverty, on less than $1.90 a day.
But, extreme poverty isn’t just about economic hardship and lack of opportunity. It also leads to malnutrition, chronic illness, disease, violence and abuse. Together, we can change that. With your help we’re combating extreme poverty through programs in:
If you’re like us, you believe that communities should be empowered to create and lead their own change.
That’s why we focus on bringing together local pastors and community leaders to discuss the challenges their communities face, identify and share their resources, and join together in vision-casting for their communities. Our programs then equip them with practical learning and tools to improve their lives and bring hope to their communities.
We believe that God gave us a plan to save our broken world, and that it begins with his church, and his people, leading the way. When you give today, you help us empower and equip thousands of churches around the world to fight back against poverty and the suffering it perpetuates.

So, how is South Sudan? It’s a question that I get a lot these days. From other humanitarians in different countries, from friends who caught a rare headline, from family members who just want to know what is it that I do all day when I say I am going back. It’s a question that is so much more complicated than it seems.
Picture a village. Remote, undeveloped, overwhelmed by poverty and characterized by broken relationships. Where malnutrition, illness, and a small number of positive role models oftentimes leave children extremely vulnerable. And where the perpetual cycle of poverty cripples entire generations, decade after decade. Now picture that same village in community. A community characterized by thriving relationships,…
