helping communities thrive while sharing the love of jesus

Your skills in areas like water projects, farming, animal husbandry, financial training, social work, health education, or engineering can transform communities and create opportunities to share the good news of Jesus.

“When I first started, we were using a services-delivery model. We would come in and do things for people. But now we use an empowerment model so people learn how to take themselves forward. One day, when we’re gone, they’ll still be strong.”
