Our Mission

To enable one Million people in developing countries to become self-reliant and improve their lives.

Our Values

Each month (at the Learning-Mentoring Centers, Mentor Offices, and the General Administration levels) we will focus on one of the stated values, rotating through the twelve over one year. During that month, we will contemplate what that value ‘in action’ looks like. We will discuss and define the meaning of the value. Together, we will determine how we can demonstrate the value through our actions. We will set goals in the ‘value’ being focused on, to insure that our actions are congruent with our personal and collective definition. In essence, we will seek to ‘act’ in accordance to our ‘values’.
