For all of it's good intentions, charity does not create a sustainable mechanism to lift people out of poverty. The reason is it does not create real income-generating opportunities. Thats' were we come in.
We believe there's a better way to end poverty. A way to meet immediate needs while establishing long-term sustainablity. A way to create systemic improvement by helping individuals. A way to get beyond handouts to holistic help.

Opportunities that produce outcomes that are self-sufficient and sustainable.
