Our vision is to assist people around the world to climb the mountain – to enable them to make a better life for themselves, their families, and those around them. We believe in raising up leaders from their own communities whenever possible. We believe that with the correct assistance and start, that they are best positioned to improve the position of their culture. Sustainability is also important. A one week trip rarely has a lasting effect on a community, unless it is part of a larger effort. We partner with local organizations when possible to assist in the long-term work that they have begun.
