The Solution to Poverty is not Charity
When we give to people who could work, we risk creating a dependency that is unhealthy, and contrary to God’s design. A.W.A.K.E. believes education and access to working capital for those who are entrepreneurially minded can provide jobs and security for many people.

Through regular interactions with the men and women we serve, staff members share the Gospel, facilitate Bible studies, and invite them to experience lasting transformation through a relationship with Jesus Christ.
Because many living in poverty have had limited access to formal education, AWAKE offers biblically-based training, mentoring, and coaching to help people start or expand their businesses.
