What We do
SHI’s helps people living in extreme poverty by partnering with local, on-the-ground organizations that serve people in need. We have a variety of programs to combat the greatest needs faced by the people we help including:
In our pursuit to help our partners make the most meaningful and effective impact in the lives of individuals we have developed the following strategy.
Strong Partnerships: We work with our partners closely to support their operations, supply resources, and develop new programs. Through our partnerships we create practical, effective solutions to address specific issues faced by those in poverty. By leveraging our resources with their knowledge we are able to combine our strengths to significantly help the people who are most in need.
Local Focus: Our partners are close to the people we are serving geographically and culturally. They know the needs of the people they are helping as well as their capabilities. By sharing this insight with SHI we able to gain a local perspective into the real problems and develop the best solutions for helping people.
Personal Attention: We want to help as many people as possible but more importantly we want to be considerate of each individual’s situation. By showing personal attention to the unique needs of each person we can offer dignity, hope, and love in the midst of the most trying circumstances.
Meaningful Impact: Helping people rise out of the struggles of poverty is one of the most important ways we can serve another person. This can be done by providing a meal, giving education, building a home, or offering healthcare. However, we believe the most meaningful impact occurs when a person’s heart, mind, and soul experience real transformation and are awakened to the dignity, love, and capabilities they have been given by their Creator.
