WE DON’T GIVE A HAND OUT.
WE GIVE A HAND UP.
Throughout our years of experience, we have seen hunger and disease stifle progress in sub-Saharan Africa. The needs are so great, but traditional aid relief (shipments of food) only brings up generations of people to rely on others for their daily bread – keeping them locked in a cycle of poverty.
Child Legacy International functions to break that cycle by requiring participation from the local populations in the areas in which we work – so that the local people have ownership in the development and fortification of their own communities.
Honor and Love God
As it says in Matthew 22:37 & 39, Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.
Love your neighbor as yourself. Respect each other regardless of race, gender, age and religion.
Because He first loved us, it is our privilege to share His unconditional love with others – renewing hearts and minds.
