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.

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.
