Nonprofit Overview

Mission: Our purpose is to strengthen communities. This is achieved by: identifying local leadership already at work in their communities, empowering them with the tools that will make their goals achievable, assisting in the provision of social support that will raise the standard of living for the local populous, intervening in emergency situations, and networking and partnering with other non-profit organizations, churches, and corporations to make the dream of community change a reality. Our core values include: compassion, dignity, respect, integrity, accountability, and relationships. World Impact Network's community-based projects provide assistance without regard to the religious beliefs, gender, or cultural and ethnic backgrounds of those we serve.

I was part of the African team (Kenya 2012). The trip was well organized and enthusiastically attended by local leaders of Kenya. These local leaders made great sacrifices to attend the training, some travelling 2-3 hours by public transportation.
The training was organized with micro industries in mind and had trainers for several methods of improvements.
The training was created for the students learning styles and created to allow the trainees to pass it on back at home.
The students were enthusiastic and embraced the subject material and requested we return soon.
WIN is doing a great job in encouraging and equipping the leaders to give the training at their home sites.
I would be happy to participate with WIN for any future such trips.

As a partner with World Impact Network since 2005, I have nothing but praise for this organization. WIN is firmly committed to serving God and His people around the world. Focusing on teaching Leadership skills, First Aid/CPR, Bloodborne Pathogens Prevention, and Disaster Preparedness training, WIN makes a positive difference in the lives of Pastors, Community Leaders, and their communities. Since 2010, I have worked alongside WIN to provide this training to approximately 1,000 people in Kenya. It is always a blessing to me to be able to serve with WIN and to do our best to make a positive difference in the lives of people in real and personal ways as well as to teach and preach the gospel.

I have worked with World Impact Network (WIN) since 2005 when they sent me as part of a 3-person team to serve Hurricane Katrina survivors in Bay St Louis, Mississippi. WIN's founders, Pastors Peter & Gabriella Van Breda, and I share the same passion for helping those in need who need it most. We also share the same philosophy of how we can best help others to help themselves - by teaching/sharing our skills in Leadership, Business, First Aid/CPR, Disaster Preparedness, Construction, Sanitation & Water, and other training.

We joined Gaby van Breda and her WIN team on a missionary trip to Kenya, to teach and preach the gospel, both in theory and in very practical ways.
As a group we demonstrated God's love by equipping the Leaders with pratical life skills like bee-keeping, water purification, sewing, and agricultural methods of growing crops of food. We further taught them to market their produce in the local markets, as well as teaching them hygiene and how to control the spread of AIDS.
WIN is a highly effective organisation, compassionate, and caring changing the lives of people, uplifting and equipping them spiritually and practically.
We consider ourselves blessed to have been part of this organisation reaching out to others who have great needs!

World Impact Network is doing great work in our backyard and around the globe. Their goal of education is not only in facilitating general education but they also do anti-human trafficking education.

Their financial accountability is second to none with a yearly audit by a CPA, thus, we are always confident that in contributing to WIN our funds will be used to their utmost effectiveness, leaving salaries at a minimum and effectively accomplishing their mission.

This is an devoted group. They give their clients the dignity to do their own shopping instead of just handing them a bag of food. They try to educate them, give them medical education, diabetes awareness and many other things. I worked with a lot of groups and have NEVER seen one as strong and loving as WIN. I also love that they have the children from Sacred Heart School volunteer there on a weekly basis. Such a great learning experience for the children.

WIN is a dynamic, innovative organization that utilizes creative ways to reach their local and international communities. WIN offers hope to many especially during this economic downturn. I have witnessed the hope on the faces of many individuals for whom a Thanksgiving meal became a reality as they were blessed by WIN. Keep up the wonderful work!!

I have personally witnessed the impact of WIN in our city; the present economic situation affects almost everybody. I noticed that lines are getting longer and more people are in need of WIN’s help. The importance of WIN to this city cannot be over-emphasized. WIN is dedicated to helping people locally and internationally; I volunteered for WIN many times and can recommend it to anyone, either to use their services or to volunteer.
