Target demographics: The poor in developing countries are trapped. They lack education, good nutrition, and a safe place to raise their families. They cope with harsh social, economic, and environmental hardships.

Poverty problems are extensive and complex. Inherited hunger, chronic malnourishment, and stunted growth have negative long-term effects on a child’s working capacity and intellectual performance. These serious effects reach far into adulthood. Such nutritional problems are prevalent in developing countries. Illness, disease, ignorance, abuse, and degrading customs are prevalent, too.

Because there is no formal economy, a majority of the populations in developing countries can’t find work. They must fend for themselves and their families without the resources they need to succeed.

Direct beneficiaries per year: 55,979

Geographic areas served: Philippines, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Peru

Programs: Mentors' seven partner foundations in Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, the Philippines and Peru offer basic business training, personalized consulting, mentoring and small loans to those who have the desire to improve their family's standard of living through entrepreneurship and self-employment. "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach him to fish and you feed him for a lifetime." --Lao Tzu Enterprise Mentors adds: "Motivate him to teach others to fish and you feed a nation."

I am sitting at the annual gala for the 6th year in a row. I am amazed by the changes they are affecting in the lives of people around the world. All faculty costs are underwritten by the board and all fundraising goes directly to benefit recipient lives. - Shaylin L Peck... more »

I became aware of Mentors International about 14 years ago. At that time I had personally experienced the opportunities that come when kind-hearted, hard-working, and generous people provide a chance for other hard-working people to self sustain--and beyond. With gratitude in my heart for my ... more »

I think what Mentors does is fantastic. They provide true and lasting change for those who want to get out of poverty but can't. They provide a small loan so that people can have pride in themselves and their ability to provide for their family... more »
