We are a training organization for Seventh-day Adventist missionaries. Our purpose is to prepare Christians to bring about sustainable change in areas afflicted with poverty. By empowering women to teach public health and build lasting relationships in their communities, we hope to improve the emotional, physical, and spiritual health of those communities. We believe that this process helps achieve the ultimate goal of reflecting God’s love clearly to the world.
Developing regions of the world suffer from huge problems that have simple solutions. Millions of deaths could be avoided with minor diet adjustments, clean drinking water, hygiene, and a basic understanding of the chain of infection. The remedies are simple, but the delivery of information is complex. To successfully respond to the need, we must understand the culture, deliver easy-to-follow information in the local language, and overcome thousands of years of tradition. This is not a simple task, but we have discovered an incredibly successful way to bring change in the communities. We train and hire native women to teach public health.
