Fortunately, you can make a difference!
Providing life-saving essentials to children living in the world's hardest places is not easy. It is a full team effort and everyone has an important role. Including - and especially - you.
It is easy to look at child poverty in the world and feel hopeless. But child poverty isn’t an impossible problem.
Your support makes a real, tangible difference in the life of a child.
Your support helps kids experience life in all its fullness (John 10:10)
Our supporters invest in the lives of children and youth. They help them have healthy, educated, and empowered lives to break free from poverty.
Education protects vulnerable children and youth from forced recruitment into armed groups, child labour, sexual exploitation and child marriage. Education also strengthens community resilience.
Education empowers by giving children the knowledge and skills to live productive, fulfilling and independent lives.
Education enlightens orphans and refugees, enabling them to learn about themselves and the world around them while striving to rebuild their lives and communities.
Access to health care protects all of our children and youth and ensures they are able to obtain health care where it’s not otherwise affordable or available.
Medical services save lives by providing direct primary care, referrals and payment for outside services, health care education, and emergency financial support.
Nutrition and feeding programs promote healthy lives by supporting undernourished children and ensure that orphans under our care receive a daily, balanced diet.
Games and sports teach the value of teamwork and empathy. They also build life skills like self-awareness, problem-solving, and the ability to cope with emotions or stress.
Youth Leadership programs help youth learn to manage funds and spearhead projects like neighborhood cleanup initiatives or community literacy programs, while building leadership skills and helping create solutions for their communities
Entrepreneurship programs foster entrepreneurship skills to help youth learn how to start and operate a small business so they generate income through self-employment.
Career guidance supports youth on a path that fits their interests, abilities and the likelihood to find work.
Scholarships elevate kids and youth, providing life-changing opportunities to attend school, college, or other higher education institutions.

We believe that working with local churches, orphanages, and ministries is the best way to create long-term impact. Our local partners have years of experience caring for children. They know their communities better than anyone. They are the best experts to provide long-term support.
We work with a variety of locally-based organizations. Some are locally-founded orphanages and churches. Others are Christian ministries. Others are hospitals and medical clinics. In every case, local experts are designing, implementing, and monitoring the work.
Promised Land Ministries is a Christian organization working around Lake Atitlan, Guatemala, an area with a 74% poverty rate. We work with local churches and short term mission teams promoting education, health, and nutrition. Together, we work to provide an opportunity to break the cycle of poverty. Our programs, feeding, school sponsorship, Promised Land School and the Medical Clinic are the pillars to change lives all rooted in the life and principles of Jesus Christ. Mi Casa Project is a program to prevent illnesses starting at home through home improvements. We host short term mission teams and are open to receive more.
