In The Poverty Lab we partner with the people that God has called together to review the condition of the seven mandatory resource pillars and then address how God is asking us to join Him by walking in faith to watch Him miraculously use the work of our hands to lift the people He's created in His image, out of poverty... for good.

 

Do you hear Him calling YOU to be a part of one of our projects?

ADDRESSING THE POVERTY MYTH

A Problem Understood is a Problem Half Solved.

It's almost impossible to correctly arrive at the correct solution until you fully understand the problem you are faced with.

A better solution.

We believe that God is guiding our efforts to achieve sustainable Community development.  We identify where God is doing, or planning to do, something big and then we simply join Him in collecting and connecting His resources to do amazing things.

Over time we have identified 'The Seven Pillars' that make up the essential building blocks that will equip a people, not just to survive, but to move out of poverty... FOR GOOD.

Joshua Ward | Executive Director

THE SEVEN PILLARS

Clean Water

Imagine having no access to clean water.  Clean and accessible water is a fundamental need for any Community to thrive and grow.  Lack of clean water causes poor hygiene and disease.  We consider Clean Water to be  basic human right.

Food Security

Now imagine having insufficient access to food.  How can a Community thrive with constant food insecurity.  Food security and food nutrition must be in place for individuals to move forward in their quest to move out of extreme poverty.

Access to Healthcare

How many children and adults in the underdeveloped world lose their lives from treatable diseases?  or even worse preventable diseases?  Access to Healthcare is fundamental to creating healthy, sustainable Communities.

Reliable Power

What if you only had electrical power for two hours a day?  Or what if you had no electrical power? Power is everything in a developed world; it provides lights and heat; it gives us refrigeration to protect our food; it enables us to study and to work.  We can build a community without power, but to build a sustainable Community reliable power is an essential building block.

Education

Education is the key to innovation and achievement.  As we learn more we do more.  We think about what we know and we reach for what we have yet to learn.  Education enables a Community to think beyond the known and make possible what seems impossible.  Education enables us to continuously nurture and feed our Community.

Sustainable Economic Development

Some will view this as a Pillar and others will view this as the natural Outcome.  Either way, families escape poverty when the foundation is strong.  People are secure and healthy and they have the infrastructure and education to build the economic engine that makes our Community truly sustainable.

Spiritual Support

Across everything we do is the belief that all people were created in the image of God and are valuable.  Our belief in God is the reason why we do the work we do and the reason why we know that our Goal is achievable.

Do you feel that God is calling you to get involved?
