Our Strategy

Our four-part strategy in giving hope is simple, yet effective. We provide physical, spiritual, educational, and economic support. Most of all, we give children an opportunity to learn about Christ.


“And once they meet Christ, everything changes!”

– Pastor Dave Ohlerking –

Physical
The food and clean water we provide opens the door to a future beyond poverty. Children also receive basic medical care as needed along with education about health, hygiene, and safety. This prevents a simple injury or curable disease from robbing a child’s future. We fight hard to see children become healthy and keep them that way.
Spiritual
Learning about the love of God helps children heal from past hurts. Understanding what the Bible teaches us about how to live inspires them to discover and act on their God-given talents. Bible clubs and spiritual mentorship enable children to find purpose and value through a growing relationship with Christ. 
Education
Education is a vital factor in breaking the cycle of hopelessness. We help children overcome the obstacles hindering their education and provide resources for them to excel. Sponsorship equips a child with a higher likelihood of staying in school and continuing their education.
Economic
Job training based on local market needs empowers youth to identify their unique talents and abilities while connecting them with their purpose. Our goal is to strategically develop children’s character so that as they grow older they are ready for the work force and become self sustaining and Christ like members of their communities.
Our Current Locations
These are the countries where we currently work.

Eswatini

Only slightly smaller than New Jersey, Eswatini is bordered almost completely by South Africa, with a portion of the country bordered by Mozambique. Well over half of the population is below the poverty line, and around 38% of the population is under the age of 15. English is one of the two official languages of Eswatini.  Almost half of the population integrates Christian teachings with traditional ancestral worship. Eswatini has the highest HIV/AIDS infection rate in the world, causing 100,000 children to be orphaned.

South Africa

The Republic of South Africa, often called the "rainbow nation," makes up the southern tip of the continent of Africa. The country's cultural diversity is displayed partly by the country's eleven official languages and diverse population. On its vast low plains and sweeping mountains, South Africa houses both coastal cities and ever-growing cities. A short distance from major cities are the sights and sounds of any developing nation:  tin shanty towns, drastic unemployment, and hopelessness. South Africa is plagued with HIV, and the orphan and vulnerable children numbers continue to grow. Though Apartheid is past, a remnant of racism and segregation remains, adding to the challenges of ministering to the poor.

Honduras

About the same size as Tennessee, Honduras is a diverse country of nine million people in Central America. The country's deep-water ports on both the Atlantic and Pacific oceans make it a critical trade partner to surrounding countries.  Its strategic geographic position has also made Honduras an attractive way-point for the drug trade between South America and the USA, which is infecting the country with systemic corruption and violence. Drastic unemployment and hopelessness fuel organized gang activity and cause tens of thousands to flee the country, seeking a better future.

Mexico

Mexico is a large and beautiful country rich in resources. It shares a northern border with the United States, and in the south it borders Central America. On its shores are three oceans:  the Gulf of Mexico, the Pacific, and the Caribbean. Spanish is the official language of Mexico. Living below the poverty line is 45.5% of Mexicans, many of whom live on less than one US dollar per day. The country has been ravaged by the drug trade which has left broken families and crushed spirits in its wake.

Belize

Belize is situated on the Caribbean Sea, south of Mexico, and is about the size of New Hampshire.  Mangrove swamps and cays along the coast give way to hills and mountains in the interior. About 60% of the total population is made up of children and youth. Belize, with all its natural beauty and loving people, still has the highest murder rate per capita in all of Latin America. Child prostitution is on the rise, and teenage violence is at its peak. Fatherless homes are widespread throughout the country and across cultures. Teenage pregnancy and high school dropout rates are exceptionally high.

Dominican Republic

The Dominican Republic (DR) shares Hispaniola Island with the country of Haiti in the Caribbean region. Around ten million people call the DR “home.”  Three million people live in the capital city, Santo Domingo. Although the DR has advanced telecommunications systems and a great transportation infrastructure, unemployment, corruption, and inconsistent electric service remain major problems. Long known for agriculture and mining, the economy is now dominated by services.
