THIS IS HOW WE APPROACH POVERTY
We believe the most effective way to release children from poverty is through a one-to-one relationship between a sponsor and a child.
Our approach to releasing children from poverty is holistic, focused on the child, based in the church and centered on Jesus Christ.
We commit to connect each child in our program to only one sponsor at a time, to help sponsors cultivate meaningful relationships with the children they sponsor and to help sponsors understand the effects poverty has on children and their development.

We believe the protection of children is central to God’s heart for them.
Our approach to child protection begins with preventing abuse whenever possible It is based on several strongly held convictions.
- No violence against children is justifiable.
- All violence against children is preventable.
- It's everyone’s job to protect children.
We commit to protecting the children in our programs from all forms of abuse and exploitation, to intervene quickly and to seek restoration and healing for children affected by abuse.

We believe it's important to uphold the dignity of the poor.
Our approach to photographing the poor is to view the poor through Jesus' eyes and to show dignity and hope which live within them despite the suffering poverty inflicts.
We commit to handle the issue of poverty in people's lives with respect and to portray the poor in ways that express their need while maintaining their dignity.
