I support this organization because it is working to help those in need around the world and it's leaders are Christians. I am a supporter because of calls for help just like this: "HELP US PROPERLY CARE FOR AIDS ORPHANS IN UGANDA. A dilapidated rental home has served as our Uganda orphanage home for the past five years. In this home we’re housing and caring for children left orphaned by the AIDS crisis." By being made aware, I can help to bring relief to children, women, and men who have nothing - who labor in garbage dumps, have no clean water, and who are exposed to the elements - to girls and women in the most horrific type of bondage.... I, so far, have not been to these places - but sitting at my desk at work - contributing financially is my small way of helping. God has called us to help widows and orphans...Peace Gospel International is helping ME fulfill this call. For me, photos taken of these places and the people who live there, bring life to this organization's work.

This is an amazing organization aimed at helping those most unfortunate in some of the hardest parts of the world to live. I saw the very beginnings in India and was so impressed with the light in the eyes of the children. The light of hope where surely before there was none. This organization not only helps those in need but also teaches them how to sustain themselves, and each orphange has the ability to help support itself through some kind of marketable enterprise - hen house, pig farm, etc. A vital charity so very deserving of support!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

give them more money!

Peace Gospel is walking the walk. They earnestly and feverishly serve those who have no choice of their circumstances or ability to help themselves, in countries most of us will never see. Regardless of the beliefs or faith of the peoples they serve, Peace Gospel Volunteers tirelessly and faithfully serve, turning pennies into dollars and giving the orphan, widow and victims of abuse the ability to begin again and have what we all need - HOPE. If you have ever felt hopeless here in the United States, multiply it by 100,000 meters of pain and you would touch the edges of despair that these victims feel. Peace Gospel is changing their world - one person at a time. Peace Gospel is the most worthwhile non-profit organization I have personally ever seen and I have been in church most of my life. Please consider helping. A small monthly donation makes a huge difference. HELP CHANGE THE WORLD! Give so that these volunteers have the tools to save lives and inject hope into these dark corners!!

Rarely have I seen an organization produce more effective changes and grow at a more rapid pace. I have watched as this company expanded from India into the neighboring countries, Africa, and now farther east. Amazing results, with women and children rescued from slavery as well as orphans given a safe haven. Perhaps most impressive to me was when the area of India where Peace Gospel built an orphanage suffered a series of serious electricity blackouts. The orphanage run by Peace Gospel had installed solar energy so that the orphans were not ever without power. Excellent foresight and outstanding leadership and planning.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Though I usually like to write in these sections for objectivity's sake, I honestly do not know of anything specific that I would change about the way that Peace Gospel runs its organization.

I was able to travel to India with Peace Gospel back in 2006 and personally observe what was going on, and was deeply impacted by the way this charity is set up. They have indigenous people on the ground in each country that are able to work in their own context and are doing a great job! They are also working to make each donated dollar go farther by utilizing micro enterprises that enable money to reproduce and feed back into the ministry. As a CPA, I am always interested in seeing what percentage goes into the actual charity and the goal of Peace Gospel has been to have more than 100% go back in. Outstanding organization!!!

Peace Gospel Intl seems like a great organization. I have been following them on Pinterest and Instagram and they have been very quick to respond to my comments and questions on social media. I was delighted to learn about all the amazing work they do for children and women in the developing world. As a young single mom, I empathize with orphans and destitute women and I can't imagine how difficult their lives must be in extreme poverty. I also can't wait for their online craft store to open!

Peace Gospel International is an organization that has changed the way that I think about nonprofit organizations. In a time where overhead seems to distill benefits from people in need, Peace Gospel International challenges the status quo. First, it is frugal with its resources: every dollar that is sent is allocated for the full benefit of the recipient in a manner that it keeps on giving through micro enterprise. Second, when you donate you not only get the satisfaction of helping, but the money is allocated wisely for the purchase of livestock and/or land providing real tangible opportunities to orphans and widows. Whether water buffaloes in India, chickens in Myanmar or farmland in Uganda, Peace Gospel International maximizes their resources in manners never seen before.

I have been looking for a high-impact organization and learned about Peace Gospel International from a friend. PG works relentlessly to improve the plight of orphans and widows in the developing world. With locations in India, Philippines, Nepal, Myanmar, Chad, and Uganda, PG’s main goals are to rescue orphans from child labor and human trafficking and provide them education and housing; rescue young women from sex trafficking; and equip widows and poverty-stricken women to provide for themselves by teaching them skills and helping them open their own small businesses. In addition to that, PG supports poverty-stricken communities surrounding its facilities by offering education, water wells, health clinics, and more.
How is all this possible? Each facility is subsidized by earned revenue from farming. PG employs a successful model of multiplying donor money. For example, if I donate $30 today toward the facility in Uganda, the local farmers will purchase one piglet and in just one year that investment would yield $100! This entire sum would go toward the Ugandan orphan program!
There is so much more that can be said about PG’S truly life-changing work, but I will let you check it out on your own.
