We're on a mission

Donors, along with trusted partners overseas, are enabling families to develop and implement local solutions to poverty that are effective, replicable, and sustainable. The life-changing outcomes of every dollar given are multiplied as families access clean water, grow more food, increase their income, restore their environment and health, and learn new skills.  Learn More...

Low administration is only one part of our story.

Every dollar counts because every person counts. The real story is in the outcomes your donations create for the poorest of the poor. Read our most recent Annual Report.

The impact of your gift continues year after year.

One gift from you keeps on giving for years to come as people share what they've learned with others in their community.

We're committed to the poor and to you.

Self-reliance for the poorest of the poor and accountability to you. These two things matter most to us.
