The idea of bringing Christian based education to leaders in emerging countries
is very exciting and desperately needed.
After spending time with TNIU (The New International University) students in Asia, it changed from being just an idea, to a tangible opportunity that I could help invest
in. An idea that can change communities all over the world. I now understand the incredible need to bring education to people
in their own countries at prices they can afford.
!I was able to meet real people, with real stories of how grateful they are that TNIU has given them the chance to get a degree and the training they need to go back and minister to the people in their churches and communities.Because of the work that TNIU is doing, they now have the ability to reach people that no missionary would be able to reach
WIN is a great non-profit. Really filling needs around the world in a special way. People are taught skills to fend for themselves proudly. WIN is preparing another trip to Kenya with first aid kits, etc. and more expertise for these needy and wonderful people. I am proud to be a part of this.
I have been supporting WIN financially for many years, and can not think of another organization that accomplishes as much as it does with the resources it has. Gaby and her team are truly and asset to this community and to God's people around the world.
I've been very fortunate to have been able to volunteer for this amazing organization. Their focus is not just the local food bank they began years ago; training women in Africa to start businesses of their own; sending medical supplies and digging water wells; training leaders all over the world and too many other programs to list. And now TNIU, The New International University, offering on-line Masters and Doctorate courses to those who would never have the opportunity in countries around the world. 100% dedicated to serving the less fortunate.
WIN is a wonderful, grounded organization that brings badly-needed education to residents of the third world. The operation is run VERY lean, and its costs are covered by existing investments so that all funds raised go directly to support WIN's mission. This organization very definitely is making a positive impact on the world.
Gabriella van Breda and the WIN ngo are tireless in their efforts to bring wholeness to families in need of assistance. They serve tirelessly to bring healing and restoration to the under-privileged and help to restore their dignity. They are a body of people who give their time, finances, and expertise to make life better for others.
I have the greatest respect for this organisation and they deserve recognition for always doing the very best for their community.
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 has a great vision to educate on multiple platforms and on an international scale. The leadership has experience in being on staff of other universities so they bring a great perspective and knowledge-base. They have put a lot of research into making this model viable to the target students they want to reach and provide a quality education.
World Impact Network is doing great work to make higher education available to Chinese leaders. Being one of the Chinese students, with the help of WIN's founders Peter and Gaby Van Breda, I completed my doctoral degree in 2013. Now, I participate in the TNIU team to help other Chinese students. I really appreciate their effort and commitment in raising up the future leaders through Christian values based education. It's a privilege to support WIN and work with WIN.
WIN has been amazing for the renewal food banks. I’ve helped raised money with piggy banks for WIN. It’s wonderful to see how many people are served by WIN. They are also wonderful
in helping LunchDebt.org with eradicating school lunch debt in Washington State. I am so happy to help and work with WIN. Together we are changing lives!
I have been a donor, volunteer to WIN for 20+ years. No other agency in Bellevue offers life changing opportunities not just o clients but service volunteer. the WIN staff is extremely efficient in making the smallest resources stretch to meet the needs of the community and provide a meaningful opportunity to get involved and make an impact right here in our community.
Over the last 7 years, World Impact Network has supported me to get formal accredited education, to equip me to serve others in need in various countries. I could not have done it without WIN. More importantly, the interactions with WIN's founders Peter and Gaby Van Breda have and is still impacting my life to love and pour out for others with the love of God. Because of them, I had the privilege to learn from professors not just of very high standard in their academic achievements but in their characters and sentiments. WIN is doing what they say they are doing: They are impacting the world through people!
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.
I have seen at close quarters how WIN is bringing positive change to the lives of many, relying on my experiences of volunteering for WIN I give kudos to WIN and recommend that others should get involved with the work they are doing.
Over the years I have volunteered for WIN, my experiences of WIN's humanitarian work for example in Africa and locally is indescribable, this organization is working continually to bring transformational change in the lives of people and leaders globally.
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.
I have had the honor of teaming with WIN for several years and have personally been changed seeing lives so impacted !
The Center A Place of Hope
I am so impressed by the quality of the leadership and by their goals to train leaders in their own countries. The statistics show that leaders brought out of their countries and trained in the US often do not return to their country. Such insightful and important and difficult work is done for other countries!
I have been very impressed with the leadership, vision and execution of WIN. They make a difference in people's lives in our community and around the world. They focus on the real needs of an individual as well as a people group and use insight and practicality to provide ways for individuals to better their lives, learn skills to enable them to live their lives out of poverty or difficult circumstances. They both "give a person a fish" so they can eat for a meal, and "teach a person to fish" so they can eat for a lifetime!
World Impact Network is involved in both formal accredited and informal education around the world
They believe that firstly, an education can never be taken away from anyone
Secondly, it empowers people and causes as rise in their economic social status.
Education gives people an opportunity for economic advancement which means an increase in their standards of living
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.
