At Path From Poverty, compassion, justice and sustainability ideals are instilled into every initiative and every program, delivering an impact powerful enough to change lives long after a program has ended. This principle-driven approach creates a culture where anyone can find a place to share and serve.
Our model supports and inspires women in Kenya and Indonesia to discover and unleash their God-given talents, creativity, and incredible work ethic, to accomplish what they could never have imagined, to walk their own path from poverty.
Path From Poverty Development Model
Alone, women survive; but in a group, they thrive. Their group provides support, accountability, sharing of best practices, and fellowship. Our field staff, all Path From Poverty graduates, provides training in leadership development, project planning, and group governance.
Group-Based Micro Savings
Saving is better than debt. Group-based micro-savings encourages group members to save and work together toward a common goal and group savings inspires the creation of new income generation initiatives. No project is finished until all members have achieved their common savings goal.
Incentives encourage risk and hard work. Our promised financial match of a group's hard-earned savings tangibly expresses our commitment and incents their hard work and savings. They express their commitment through the literally thousands of hours each woman toils to complete their project.
