Our International Work

International projects over the years

Our international projects are focussed on Women and Children, Health and Education.

Our intent is always to provide a hand-up, not a hand-out. 
We do engage in multi-year projects, but more often than not,
we go in, help a community improve their living environment, and set the people up to be self-sustaiining.

We find this is best for the community and allows us to help as many people as possible.
