Outreach International builds sustainable solutions to help end extreme poverty around the world.
Projects don't end poverty-people do. That's why our key investment is in the people themselves. Our highly-trained and monitored indigenous field staff are the catalysts who create self-reliant communities in ten countries on four continents.
At Outreach International, we believe that giving a gift without educating a community to use it, repair it or cultivate it, is no gift at all; it's a quick fix to a problem that will continually resurface. We don't want to create short-term solutions for world poverty; we permanently eliminate it and impact all future generations.
