Whether you are passionate about a specific location or simply have a heart to serve, we need you! Choose a location below to find out more about the need in that region and some of the specific ways in which we partner with ministries to provide hope to the people there.
41% of Belize's 386,000 people live at or below the poverty line. Many of these people live in remote tribal villages deep in the bush. We are partnering with ministries on the ground who are committed to serving these people. Through community outreach, educational and feeding initiatives in public schools, and children's programs we hope to have open doors to sharing the gospel.
Haiti is the poorest nation in the western hemisphere with 59% of the population living below the poverty line. There is an orphan crisis and families are in dire need. We are passionate about keeping families together in a nation where 8/10 children in the orphan system has one or both of their parents living. We work with natives and missionaries on the ground to meet physical needs through child sponsorship, education, medical care and spiritual development. Our site is a community center where people can come to learn, seek medical attention, play sports or worship amidst their neighbors. Our desire is to help sustain the efforts of the locals through VBS, construction projects, community outreach and education initiatives.
India is a country in dire need both physically and spiritually. More than 99% of the population is unreached; they have never heard the truth of the gospel. The largest red light district in all of India is found in Kolkata - women and children here are at-risk simply because of where they were born. We believe only the gospel can bring light into this darkness. Join us as we partner with nationals on the ground who are already doing the work of loving their people through church planting and rescue initiatives.
Jamaica is the second poorest country in the Caribbean - a fact often overlooked by tourists. Just miles away from tourism destinations, villages are living in deep poverty. We are partnering with ministries on the ground who are already doing the work to help meet both the material and spiritual needs of their neighbors. Our desire is to help sustain these nationals by coming alongside the local church.
The Baja Peninsula is home to thousands of asylum-seeking families from places including southern Mexico, Guatemala and El Salvador. Families migrate north daily in hope of a better life, but when they get turned away at the U.S. border they often find themselves in severe poverty, with ethnic backgrounds that are largely unaccepted. We are partnering with ministries on the ground to come alongside these families - helping to meet some of their most basic physical needs (such as housing) while sharing the love of Christ.
With 81% of the population identifying as Hindu, Nepal is a nation in dire need of the gospel. Many children in this region are at risk for trafficking, and it is our desire to support the missionaries who are building relationships and instituting programs to prevent this from happening.

Read what fellow volunteers have to say about their journeys.
Going to Haiti has been one of the most inspiring
experiences of my life. I love being able to go back each year to reunite with the children
I met on my past trips. Seeing the changes made on the Poverty Resolutions site is truly
remarkable. The first time I went to Haiti, the site was small, and only contained a small
tent, the main building and the kitchen. Since then, they have built a medical center,
kindergarten, basketball court, and playground. My favorite part of my trips is spending
time with the children during VBS and at a local orphanage ....
Watching the kids sing, dance, and play is so inspiring to me. No matter what some of these children are going through at home, they show up to Vacation Bible School with smiles on their faces, ready to learn about God. I can’t wait to see what God is planning for Poverty Resolutions in the future.

I first traveled to Haiti with our church in March of 2017 and had a great
time of ministry and fell in love with the Haitians. I worked with our medical team helping
set up and praying for the Haitians that came through our clinics. During a neighborhood
walk two of our ladies elected to sponsor two brothers. I thought about doing the same but
wanted to talk to my wife as we do sponsor other children with other ministries. During the
year things got lost and we didn't go ahead with sponsorship. When I returned in March of
I met up with the two brothers and I was amazed at how they were doing. They both had put on weight and were so happy. In other words they were prospering.
Having already talked to my wife I went ahead and sponsored a little boy, Sony. Now I can hardly wait to see him during our next trip in March, 2019. I know that Poverty Resolutions has helped him prosper and he is happy.
I think Poverty Resolutions has a remarkable ministry to the people of Haiti and we are so glad to be a part of it.

I have had the privilege of traveling to Haiti to serve
with Poverty Resolutions several times. Over the last 20 years I’ve lead and participated in
many service-oriented trips with many different organizations. After every trip, I always
left questioning whether the funds, resources, and time could have been utilized in more
effective ways to serve the community. Much of this had to do with the sense that our
week-long project was just that…a week-long effort with no real long-term connection to the
community. My experiences in Haiti with ....
Poverty Resolutions have been dramatically different. My experiences in Haiti with Poverty Resolutions have been dramatically different. Poverty Resolutions allows us to be a part of projects and work that began long before we arrived on the scene, and will continue long after we leave. There is a real sense that you are part of a long-term commitment to a community. Working with Poverty Resolutions is also about partnering with the local people in serving their community, as opposed to the “savior mentality” that so many other short-term service projects seem to foster. You walk away with a strong sense that you have joined with the larger global body of Christ serving to advance His kingdom together. The last, and perhaps the most significant, difference I’ll mention is the ability to continue our partnership with the local communities PR serves from home. I have appreciated the opportunity to sponsor children and youth that we have served so they can continue to receive education, food, clothes, care, etc. Additionally, I’ve been able to be a part of local stateside efforts to boost the mission of PR, another opportunity to continue the partnership and contribute to real long-lasting change.
