H.E.L.P. Programs

H.E.L.P. is a full range Christian community development organization.  Each area of development offered by H.E.L.P. is critical in a wholistic ministry to address the mind, body, and spirit. 
 
Literacy, the foundation of development, is generally the steppingstone for other programs.  Once villagers have their eyes opened, they can learn how to grow crops better, have a healthier life, care for their animals, and earn a living.  As poverty-stricken farmers are able to care for their own family, they are able to assist orphans and those in more dire need. 
 
Each H.E.L.P. department is integrally linked with the other and builds on each other, and each H.E.L.P. full-time worker or volunteer is committed to not only the physical, but also the spiritual development of the person.  Only through the grace of God and power of the Holy Spirit has H.E.L.P. seen amazing changes in the lives of individuals and families and in their communities.
