TOUCHING LIVES. TRANSFORMING COMMUNITIES.
We lead with the gospel. Our work is founded on the evangelism & church planting efforts of local “barefoot pastors.”
We minister to orphaned and children in need with education, housing, tutoring, nutritious meals and Christian love.
Following the example of Jesus, we look not only at a person’s spiritual needs, but their physical and emotional needs as well.
Through village churches we offer economic development opportunities: clean water wells, literacy, skills training, and more.
