To serve humanity so all may live as God intended.
Justice. Compassion. Love.
Based on Micah 6:8, these three words guide our approach to service and development.
Connected – We work collaboratively for the best outcome
Courageous – We persevere through challenging situations
Compassionate – We empathize with the communities we work with and with each other
