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.
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!

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
