Family Business Program

Around the world, the family unit plays a key role in the stability of the local society—a fact that is especially true in developing nations. Another fact is this: communities whose economies are struggling at the very local level often see high levels of children without parental care. These children are left to fend for themselves because parents are often unable to provide for them. They may be taken to orphanages in the hope that they’ll have a better life, be educated, and have a higher chance of survival. This is a situation that no parent should ever have to face. 

The Family Business Program seeks to change this reality. By walking alongside each family as they take significant, proven steps, the narrative is shifted; it helps keep families together. It helps them directly thrive in their community, but more than that – it ripples outward into the entire community itself. As more and more families are empowered, the outlook of the entire community improves. The local economy strengthens, which leads to more opportunity for everyone.

Family empowerment is more than just a process or program, it is family preservation and orphan prevention.

When we empower families, brokenness is healed, dignity is restored, the impact is magnified. Healthy families take care of others. You heal families, you fix the orphan crisis.

Not only does the program help families to thrive, but it ripples outward into the community as families grow their businesses, create even more jobs, and pour into the local economy.
