How do we improve lives?

Our goal is to reduce poverty one community at a time. We believe that in order to do this, a holistic and equitable approach to community development is necessary. We partner with each community and local government, then assess priority areas to work on first.

Education, Healthcare, Clean Water, Food Production, and Job Creation work hand-in-hand to enable a community to sustainably improve their lives and their children’s lives for generations to come.

Breaking the Cycle of Poverty

By Investing in




This Is Our Process

100% of your donation goes directly to the project of your choosing. That’s right—no overhead or hidden costs. Transparency is of the utmost importance to us. Our process of community development includes everyone involved: you, international community members, local governments, and us. Before any project, our team first assesses the location and meets with the community. Once the partnership is in place, we plan with the local government, then start fundraising for the project. After implementation, we follow up by communicating with in-country project managers, as well as project monitoring trips several times each year.
