LPGM is a small organization doing big things! Their emphasis on educating girls is not only important but is research-based and proven to change communities. I am happy to support the programs of LPGM because I know that they have direct impact on communities in the areas that are most needed. I completely trust the work that is done to be ethical and valued by the communities. I cannot think of anything more important than educating young people, particularly girls, in communities around the world!
Not only does LPGM accomplish remarkable work of providing access to quality education for girls and women in several abjectly poor countries around the world, but it is also as financially transparent an organization as I know. I am very proud to both financially support LPGM and serve on its board assisting LPGM in accomplishing its global work of getting women and girls access to education.
Lutheran Partners in Global Ministry was founded by good friends of ours 25 years ago. This organization provides access to quality education for people at the margins, especially women and girls. They work together with global partners to listen, respond and bear witness to local needs and priorities. LPGM focuses on four main ways to help those in need: Partnerships, Education, Empowerment, and Travel. I am happy to write this review for a wonderful, caring and life changing organization!
I recently worked with LPGM on planning our trip to Guatemala at the end of January this year. I have worked with a variety of organizations on trips before, but I had not had an experience like I did with LPGM. It truly was a partnership, where we built our trip together based on our shared values of global partnership, justice and boundary crossing. It continues to be an honor to work with them on how to learn from local leaders around world on how leaders are healing their communities. Then bringing that knowledge back home to apply what we learn to be co-creators in healing and justice in our own communities.
I have been involved with LPGM since 2008 when my wife and I took a trip to India to meet students we were sponsoring through LPGM. It was a life changing experience to meet these students first hand and follow up with them through out their years at school.
I took another trip there in 2018 to visit with 3 of our current students. One will be graduating from nursing college after 7 years of being her sponsor.
I find LPGM a great way to give back and help others.
Lutheran Partners in Global Ministry is supporting amazing work in Tanzania through the Safe Initiative that supports a local organization called Mwangaza. Through Mwangaza, local leaders are providing immediate assistance to at-risk girls in danger of early forced marriage or genital cutting. They are also training teachers on the safety issues many students face, child protection measures, and student counseling techniques. In addition, community-based training with mothers and daughters foster discussions about health, well-being, and the problems that most affect women and girls.
Lutheran Partners in Global Ministry is keeping girls safe in Tanzania by providing opportunities for whole communities to talk about safety—what it means and how we all find it.
I was one of the sponsored student of the LPGM .Which is one of the most incredible organisation I can say.Mrs .Sandra Anderson who was my sponsor parent.They gave me a great confidence and motivation which makes my career more enjoyable and happy in hospitality around the world and so far I worked and working in different countries.I would like to thank each one of the member in LPGM
I am proof that travel can be transformational! With LPGM we get to meet local people and experience a bit of their culture. But, what I have come away with is a new understanding of hospitality and generosity. Go out on a limb and take your faith global by traveling with LPGM.
Excellent! This is exactly what we hope will happen on LPGM organized trips. More information about travel can be found here: https://lutheranpartners.org/transformational-travel/
LPGM is essential in providing access to quality education. I have been giving to LPGM for about a year and will continue to do so as I have received great communication from my sponsored student and I know the organization has the needs of the students in mind in all that they do.
Thanks for your review. We are so glad you have made a connection with your sponsored student. More information about student sponsorship can be found here: https://lutheranpartners.org/our-impact/india/sponsor-a-student/
