We fell in love with the poor many years ago.   After traveling many nations including the war zones of Myanmar, the garbage dumps in Mozambique, the remote villages in Northern Thailand as well as the inner cities of our own great nation, our hearts broke for the people who were suffering under the darkness of oppression and poverty.  A deep calling unto deep began to well up in our hearts to see justice, mercy and compassion put into action toward the forgotten people in remote isolated regions.   

It was not until we were introduced to a young man from South India whose love for his own people has cost him and his family everything, that we knew it was time for concrete action.  As we walked among the rejected of all rejected people groups- the dalit - the "untouchables" who's children are so vulnerable to exploitation of all sorts - as we saw the many many orphans abandoned and homeless-  as we listened to story after story of  widows who did not know where their next meal would come from -  we knew for certain it was time to intervene.  These are some of the most beautiful people we have ever met.  We are so honored to partner in helping to bring hope and restoration to these villages.  We invite you to open your hearts to this great mission!

Mission & Vision

We have a simple, but robust mission: to bring Hope and Restoration to the Poor.  We do that by focusing on community-based efforts including homes for the orphans, employment for the widows, education and food aid.  We see children being rescued and whole villages being transformed.
