Outreach International
November 7, 2012

I have seen first hand (two trips to Nicaragua) how Outreach International has been able to organize and empower villages to address their own needs to lift themselves out of poverty. This is the "Participatory Human Development Process" that has been used by Outreach International for more than 30 years. Rather than hand-outs that result in dependency, Outreach International typically sends one field staff member to a village to help them realize their own abilities and power. This results in "sustainable good", as the change comes from within the village. It is a cost-effective and long-term way to alleviate poverty.
