Short term relief has a role to play, but making a sustainable difference in the long term is critical. Empowering local leaders is the key.

WHY DEVELOPMENT WORKS?
We want every community to succeed in the long run. Even small initiatives like solar lighting & clean water immediately improve productivity, help increase savings, and strengthen the health and success of families, no matter how remote their village might be. In addition, we provide strategic guidance and support for locally owned businesses and entrepreneurs. When appropriate, we even start businesses, build schools after school centers, churches, and community outreach bases.
WHAT IS OUR APPROACH TO HELP?
Our mission is to work side by side with pastors in developing countries to help them meet concrete needs in their communities. Because we choose to build relationships first rather than prescribe ready made solutions, we are strategically positioned to do three things: (1) know the exact details of what's going on in real time; (2) tailor make solutions to those needs; and (3) get funding directly into the hands of those most vulnerable. Our relational approach means more people are reached with longer lasting results, every time.
HOW YOU CAN CHANGE THE STORY.
This doesn't happen on its own. We build the relationships, but it is our passionate community of monthly donors who fuel the movement & make the impact real. Every story has a problem to overcome and a hero to bring the solution to reality... You are the hero. Your generosity + God's love brings relief and builds sustainability in the initiatives we pursue together. Join us in changing the story for God's glory by signing up for our monthly donor community The Circle.
We value your generosity and we value the partnerships we have with each church and community we work in. Therefore, proof is extremely critical to our work. From food relief in Tanzania, to building homes for families displaced by floods in Rwanda, to putting hundreds of roofs on homes destroyed by typhoons in the Philippines, below are some photos showing exactly how funds were used. In all future initiatives, you can fully expect to see proof of the impact you make possible.
