HOW WE FIGHT POVERTY
WE BELIEVE THE PATH OUT OF POVERTY BEGINS WITH RECONCILIATION WITH GOD.
All suffering and deprivation, including poverty, is ultimately the result of humanity’s broken relationship with God, which further resulted in a broken relationship with ourselves, others, and creation. The gospel restores these relationships and ultimately sets to right all that sin has set wrong. This is the foundation for human flourishing!
WE BELIEVE A JOB IS STILL THE GREATEST POVERTY ALLEVIATION PROGRAM EVER DEVISED!
Self-sustaining labor is essential to human dignity. People born into poverty often lack the human capital necessary to access, acquire, and succeed in the modern work force. We must work to equip them with the requisite life skills (worldview), access, and vocational training to secure and maintain successful employment.
WE BELIEVE REACHING THE NEXT GENERATION IS NECESSARY TO BREAKING THE CYCLE OF POVERTY.
Children raised in poverty often suffer from severe intellectual, emotional, and social deprivations that require early intervention in order to prevent them from being trapped in the cycle of poverty.
