The key to overcoming poverty in the third world is empowering people to develop their own gifts and skill-sets so that they can be equipped to build a livelihood. Giving handouts might serve to meet short term needs, but it leaves the foundations of the problem untouched,and often creates a cycle of dependency and helplessness.
Our mission is to move beyond the short term by helping people with chronic poverty to start their own businesses and to coach them in art of business management. The impact goes beyond a single changed life. Our partners are able to invest into the lives of others, and begin a new cycle of hope and success for future generations.
