Review for Outreach International, Kansas City, MO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I'm privileged to have been on the board of Outreach for the past 5 years. A finer organization does not exist. There are many worthy charities doing great work, but it's hard to find one that makes every dollar donated count so deeply. First, the Outreach approach to alleviating poverty is unparalleled in long term poverty reduction, giving villages sustainable tools to continually improve their quality of life. Second, Outreach is blessed to have a devoted donor who pays for all our overhead costs, which means every dollar you donate goes 100% to helping people improve their lives. Check out the website which helps explain more deeply how Outreach works and the incredible impact it has around the world. Want to make the world a better place? Join the Outreach family.

Outreach is expanding since our proven approach to alleviating chronic poverty works! We have added Nepal and Cambodia to our current 8 countries and now help thousands of people across 10 different countries. Outreach works!

Review for Outreach International, Kansas City, MO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Ghandi said "Poverty is the worst form of violence." Which means that billions of people are experiencing violence on a daily basis. Outreach has a proven methodology that eliminates poverty. We have solid, scientific data that clearly demonstrates the soundness of our approach. The approach takes time and diligence, but relatively few resources and provides a foundation for villages to become self sufficient, self directing, and self supportive. I know of no more powerful approach. Outreach deserves your support. Stop the violence.

Review for Outreach International, Kansas City, MO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was looking to get involved with a charity that made a meaningful difference in helping people take control of their lives to build their own better futures. Outreach International "teaches" villages how to get things done to improve their circumstances. We have better long term data than any other group I'm aware of that demonstrates that our villages are legitimately better off and that those changes stick. We embed highly trained locals that guide villages through what is essentially a change management process. For the first two years a lot of hand holding is required, but that quickly phases out as teams learn how to improve on whatever their most pressing need is, whether that's food, shelter, sanitation, medical care, education, it doesn't matter. Outreach teaches how to work as a team to build long term solutions. We typically are involved with a village for roughly 5 years, after that they are able to make progress independently. If you teach a man to fish...

Poverty has no simple or easy solution. Outreach International has a validated process that teaches people how to drastically improve the quality of their lives by focusing on problems that most need solving. Outreach teaches empowerment so that villages can solve current, and future problems. Data supports these conclusions, Outreach rigorously tracks progress across key measures and has many years of supporting data showing the success of this approach. Outreach makes a sustainable difference and richly deserves your support.
