At Christmas, we pray for peace on Earth, and goodwill to all. Our work of creating business solutions to poverty makes a critical contribution to peacekeeping.
With your support, we create opportunities for social inclusion and both household and community cohesion, and work to ensure that the tools to build sustainable livelihoods are made available to marginalized individuals and their families.
This holiday season, help us build bridges between small-holder farmers and locally owned small businesses that are not dependent on charity for survival.
This Christmas season, join us as we help build peace, both at home and abroad.
