We work to directly alleviate poverty in communities in three ways:
- Providing small grants and gifts to grassroots organizations in nine different countries
- Sponsoring young people from impoverished communities through our Children’s Fund
- Sending talented volunteers to do skilled work with poverty-alleviation agencies through our Fellows Program
There are 26 grassroots organizations TFI currently supports, which are located in Cambodia, Ghana, India, Kenya, Peru, Philippines, and Uganda. With these organizations TFI works toward alleviating poverty through education, women’s empowerment, and community development through their Giving Program. TFI make grants to community organizations, village schools, charitable medical clinics, and orphanages. In addition, TFI have also given needed supplies, including medical equipment, clothes, and shoes to several of these organizations.
TFI also sponsors the education of some extraordinary children that we have come across in our work through our Children’s Fund. When we learned their stories, we were compelled to help and support them. We have committed to sponsoring their educational needs through the end of high school, and beyond for higher education or vocational programs. The seven children we presently support are living in Ghana and India.
We also provide our partner organizations with skilled volunteers to address the specific needs they are encountering in their work through our Fellowship Program. These volunteers live and work on site for at least eight weeks.
This work is done in the following nine countries:
