Relief of Abject Poverty

Globally, poverty is the single greatest enabler of human trafficking, the flood of abandoned children and the rampant spread of disease. Without the means to help themselves, entire cultures are vulnerable to exploitation, and their people spend all their energy in a desperate quest for sustenance. The underlying causes of poverty range from natural disasters and military conflict to ethnic rivalries and political corruption. Global Way Makers recognizes the distinction between help up and a handout.

Our Partners bring a variety of solutions to poverty, and provide appropriate support to fulfill both the immediate needs and long-term goals of the constituencies they serve.
