What Defines Us.

 Sustainable Icon

Sustainably Focused

We’re focused on solutions that move beyond immediate relief. By equipping poor and displaced communities with sustainable ways of empowering them to provide for their community needs, we enable them to flourish even in a state of conflict and oppression.

Community Icon

Community Driven

We’re driven by relationships, not policy. We appreciate the capabilities that are already held by communities and develop partnerships to draw people and skills together to develop creative solutions to the unique problems they face.

Faith Icon

Faith Inspired

We’re inspired by our faith to do more than just talk about God’s love. We demonstrate it through practical response, caring for the whole person by working to improve their spiritual, physical, mental, social and emotional well-being.
