Outreach International:

Posted on April 10, 2011


Poverty plagues the world bringing with it the need for public health initiatives. Some effects of poverty include lack of access to healthcare, lack of safe shelter, lack of food, and living in dirty and unsanitary conditions. There are many organizations working to fight poverty and Outreach International is one.

Outreach International works in 14 impoverished countries, helping men, woman, and children overcome the effects of poverty. Outreach International explains,

“We don’t give handouts, or believe in short-term fixes. Our mission is simple: we believe in long-term investments that bring about sustainable solutions and long-lasting change for the better. We call it Sustainable Good.”

Providing opportunities and investments that create long-term solutions is key to bringing about change.

Outreach International's idea for a sustainable community.

Key areas:

Children: Children need to thrive, not just survive. That’s why Outreach International’s work benefits 16,000 children in some of the poorest places in the world. Thriving is about good food, health care, and education that goes beyond the blackboard. We do this so children can act on their own issues of poverty and become catalysts for change in their families and communities.

Communities: Community is the combined strength of empowered women, hopeful men and healthy children. Outreach International works in thousands of communities in 14 countries, helping people out of isolation and building their capacity to create a sustainable future.

Families: Outreach International brings dignity to individuals by helping them become self-sufficient through education, healthcare and livelihood, building stronger families as a result. Outreach International brings people together to share their concerns with others, to find hope and build confidence.

Environment: Communities are gaining better agricultural methods, healthier animals, and better sanitary systems–naturally sustainable ways to bring communities back into balance. And growing a sustainable future.
