Community-wide transformation starts with an empowered leader.
After 20+ years in relief and development, we stand firm in the belief that sustainable change begins with HOPE.
At Petros Network, we walk alongside and train indigenous leaders to leverage their influence and resources so they can address community needs — human rights, governance, education, health, hygiene, and relief from poverty, intolerance, and persecution.
How does hope = sustainable change?
Once a trusted presence is established, church planters show the heart of their faith by aligning Petros Network resources to address the community’s most pressing physical, educational, and economic needs.
The result is redemptive lift. All community members, regardless of religious beliefs, are offered hope-filled opportunities that crush the confines of generational poverty and overflow into neighboring communities.
trained to share the gospel in word and deed
The communities we serve often face chronic poverty, food insecurity, limited healthcare, clean water scarcity, harmful cultural practices, and lack of access to education. In these situations, women are often abused and children suffer.
As indigenous church planters in our program live out Kingdom values, they become change agents in all aspects of community life. Along the way, they define and present the unique needs of the communities they serve. When they do, we cultivate a network of investors, community groups, government bodies, and religious sectors to respond with sustainable solutions that best fit the local context of the rural villages.
practical solutions that lift a community
Reaching the unreached is synonymous with serving the poor. Unique solutions fit community needs and often include:
- Empowering women & girls through development training, girls power programs and micro grants,
- Feeding children and families through food distribution and agriculture initiatives,
- Protecting children through child sponsorship, access to education, and school feeding programs,
- Improving health through clinics that provide medical and dental care,
- Providing clean water by constructing wells and cisterns and offering sanitation training and solar power,
- Educating out of poverty through developing schools and training teachers, and
- Responding to unique needs through sports outreach, small business training, transformational leadership development, and construction projects.

Stories of Compassion From The Field
Give to Compassion Projects
If you, your church, or your business are interested in giving to a specific compassion project instead, please browse available opportunities below or reach out to share what’s on your heart.
Empowering Women & Girls
Petros Network Women ignites a spark of hope in the hearts of women through life and job skill training, leadership development, and micro-loans or meaningful work. When women are empowered the cycle of poverty is broken.
At risk children are vulnerable to trafficking, exploitation and abuse. Child sponsorship provides protective care, clothing, medical services, and school tuition. Our children’s FeedOne program helps to provide nutritious meals and keep kids learning in school.
Educating and Training
Education is the path out of poverty. Whether it is schooling for children or one of our extension centers for adult learning, learners of all ages can learn their way into a new future.
Food security is at risk in the difficult and often persecuted places we serve. Agriculture training and support, along with Children’s feeding initiatives provide children and families with the vital support they need to thrive.
Poverty and poor health are linked, creating a cycle that is difficult to break. We offer immediate help to those who are sick and suffering as well as resources for a healthier and sustainable future.
Providing Clean Water
Water is one of our most basic needs as human beings, yet it is the number one cause of death in the areas we serve. Clean water, sanitation, and hygiene go hand in hand to save lives. Clean water initiatives vary due to the unique needs of a village.
