At Outreach International, we believe when communities work together, they can overcome the challenges of chronic poverty.
Our work supports groups who construct new water wells, establish low-interest loan programs, repair roads, grow vegetables, and much more. It empowers people to lift themselves, sustainably, into a future defined by opportunity.
HOW IT WORKS
Now that you’re an expert on our approach, sharpen your knowledge of our methodology and the nine-step process we call “Participatory Human Development,” or “PHD.” It’s pretty fascinating, in addition to being super-effective.
