...   Finance & Accountability

Charity Navigator evaluates a nonprofit organization’s financial health including measures of stability, efficiency and sustainability. We also track accountability and transparency policies to ensure the good governance and integrity of the organization.

No Score

We have not issued this nonprofit a Finance & Accountability score. This does not indicate a positive or negative assessment, only that we have not reached a conclusion for the following reason:

This organization cannot be evaluated by our Encompass Rating methodology because it files Form 990-EZ, as allowed by the IRS for charities with less than $200,000 annual revenue.

The lack of a rating for this reason simply means that the organization does not meet our rating criteria. It does not indicate a positive or negative assessment by Charity Navigator.

...   Impact & Results

Charity Navigator assesses how well a nonprofit delivers on its mission. To issue an Impact & Results score, we estimate the actual impact a nonprofit has on the lives of those it serves, and determine whether it is making good use of donor resources to achieve that impact.

No Score

We have not issued this nonprofit an Impact & Results score. This does not indicate a positive or negative assessment, only that we have not reached a conclusion for one of the following reasons:

  • The nonprofit is eligible for a score, but we have not yet gotten to scoring it.

  • The nonprofit is eligible for a score, but we have not yet developed the specific algorithms to estimate the impact of the type of service it delivers and so cannot issue a score yet.

  • The nonprofit does not primarily deliver services directly to beneficiaries or it is not reasonable to expect the nonprofit to measure impact for its primary activity. The impact analysis framework that we use is not well suited to these nonprofits.

  • The nonprofit is not heavily reliant on individual donors because beneficiaries fund a majority of its costs or it does not receive any private charitable contributions.

What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

PIPES International's primary mission is to partner with indigenous people groups to make disciples of Jesus Christ and end abject poverty. We want to see communities that are thriving spiritually and economically. We want to see an end to slavery, rape, starvation, hunger, and all forms of inhumane treatment among these people groups. We want to see every school-age child attending and receiving a quality education. Education will not only transform a children's lives but also transform the communities. We want to see a healthy community, fewer deaths due to malaria and water-borne diseases, better hygiene, and sanitation. As PIPES walks alongside the Pygmy people in a long-term relationship, we would like to see these people given the fundamental human rights they deserve and be recognized by their governments as citizens of their countries, with all the rights and privileges that should follow. The greatest gift we have is hope and opportunity. PIPES has introduced Jesus Christ to the community, which has embraced the good news. There is no greater hope than the promise of eternity. We continue to disciple many Christians who are growing in faith.

What are your strategies for making this happen?

PIPES utilizes a three-fold strategy that takes care of spiritual development, economic progress, and educational needs. Each of the strategies is explained further in the progress report. a). Mission and Discipleship (Spiritual growth) • Organize grassroots missions' movements by inspiring local leaders as agents of change. • Development and utilization of a one-year discipleship workbook. • Short and long term missions. b). Family Transformation (Economic, health, sanitation) • Rabbit and crop farming • Sewing business • Table banking (Savings) and small business • improved healthcare, hygiene, and sanitation c). Education and Mentorship (Focuses on junior, high school, and college education) • Access and completion of primary education • Children growing in their Christian faith

What are your organization's capabilities for doing this?

PIPES International has a strong and dedicated leadership team that is result-oriented. We ensure regular staff training and coaching. We cultivate strong regional leadership teams who oversee regions and are mandated to decisions for the greater good of the organization. We also have a team of volunteers that help the staff to achieve our goals. This has increasingly enabled us to achieve our mission effectively. We have invested in technology for proper financial management, communication, and marketing. We ensure continued updates to technology to improve the outcomes. We also leverage on a network of established churches to achieve high impact among the recipients that we serve.

How will your organization know if you are making progress?

a). Mission and Discipleship (Spiritual development) We want to disciple 100 Christians each year in each of the five countries we are implementing the one-year discipleship program. A total of 2,500 Christians will be trained in five years. This will be measured by tracking weekly Bible study attendance and evaluation test at the end of each year. For the next five years, we will train 20 national leaders, each year in a short intensive training. The training will be held in major cities in each country served. The 20 leaders will be involved in the discipling of the 100 Christians in their countries. Also, we will conduct three days of pastoral and leadership conferences, which will equip 100 church leaders in each of the five countries. We will conduct two international short term mission trips each year. An average of ten participants will be invited for each mission trip. Additionally, we will hold two local missions targeting 20 participants to facilitate more local involvement in missions. b). Family Transformation (Economic, health, sanitation) We want to improve the living standards of 20 families each year in five countries. This will be measured by the number of graduates from our sewing training for women, improved health due to deworming for children, and better nutrition for families resulting from better crop and rabbit farming. c). Education and Mentorship (Focuses on junior, high school, and college education) We want 100 new students to enter grade one each year in Hope School, DR Congo. We want to graduate 60 students in primary school and 40 students in High School each year. We will measure by tracking new students and graduating students. We also expect to see a positive change in behavior that includes; reduced alcohol intake, fewer people smoking, and more people involved in community activities. We would like to see an improvement of 10% on the rate of transition from one grade to another. The current transition late is about 70%, which has improved by about 10% in the last four years.

What have and haven't you accomplished so far?

a). Mission and Discipleship (Spiritual development) Weekly fellowship/Bible studies: The discipleship meetings help individuals to grow in faith. The hope of eternal is a central theme in our organization, and growing close to Christ is vital. Next phase: In the next phase, all weekly bible studies will use a one-year standardized Discipleship Workbook. This will help in monitoring and evaluating of study achievement through standardized testing. Local support: To enhance the growth, PIPES supports nine pastors, missionaries, and a social worker who teach, facilitate meetings, and mentor community members thrive spiritually and economically. Next phase: In the next two years, each of the supported pastors/missionaries/social workers will be required to train one or two people to be competent enough to perform same duties. Training of local leaders: Over the last two year, PIPES International has trained over 500 church leaders in effective leadership in five countries. Next Phase: We will train 50 local leaders in 5 years to impact 5,000 families through the gospel and lift them out of poverty. We will also increase church partnership from 11 to 22 in 5 years. Missions impact: Additionally, in the last eight-year, PIPES has undertaken multiple mission trips to more than 15 countries. Over two hundred participants have been traveled to share the gospel and make disciples of Christ. In total, we have reached over 100,000 people with the good news, and about 9,000 have given their lives to Jesus Christ. b). Family Transforming: In 2019, we launched rabbit farming to enhanced crop farming. Each of the ten families in Ruduha village, Rwanda, received a rabbit hutch and three rabbits. The families use rabbits for meat, and they sell the surplus to meet other family needs. On crop farming, we have provided training on better farming methods as well as seeds to about 50 families in Rwanda, DRC, and Burundi. Due to the provision of quality seeds, families have improved their farming methods and increased production. On health, we have conducted training for local leaders and families on proper hygiene and sanitation. Due to the training, families in Ruduha, Rwanda, have constructed outside bathrooms. We also initiated the sewing business. We have started with 15 ladies who are training in dressmaking and tailoring. The ladies will graduate in a few months and will be provided with tools to start their own business. Last year we launched the Deworming program and facilitated the Deworming of indigenous children in the Goma sector in Rwanda. The worms had caused pain, sickness, and malnourishment among children. Through the process, we have gotten rid of parasites, such as roundworms and tapeworms.

Constituent Feedback

Constituent Feedback

Charity Navigator believes nonprofit organizations that engage in inclusive practices, such as collecting feedback from the people/communities they serve, may be more effective.

Why It Matters

Like the Encompass Rating System, the Culture & Community Beacon is designed to evolve as relevant metrics are developed and ready for integration. Our partnership with Feedback Labs and Guidestar by Candid, and other partners including Fund for Shared Insight, GlobalGiving and Keystone Accountability, enables us to launch the first version of this beacon with Constituent Feedback information collected on Candid's site.

Feedback practices have been shown to support better Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion outcomes, an essential area of assessment that we intend to further expand and develop in the future. Feedback Labs has documented several studies which indicate that beyond achieving organizational goals, nonprofits that are attentive and responsive to concerns and ideas raised by beneficiaries establish stronger relationships with the people they serve, promote greater equity, and empower constituents in ways that can help to ensure better long-term outcomes.
