Ending Poverty One Villager at a Time

No matter where you live, poverty exists.  What we see on our national news, it is just the glimpse of the extreme poverty in Asia, Africa and the Middle East.  Much of the world’s poverty is hidden, covered or ignored in our modern existence.  It is too much for us to bear!

GHNI workers cannot turn away from the realities. Our field workers walk daily alongside hidden and hurting communities. They watch as villages transform before their eyes.  There is a solution to poverty and it lies within villagers; it lies within those currently living in poverty.

Visiting women every Friday and Saturday in a small village in rural Nepal, our village trainer, David, is hopeful for transformation.

Where is My Sister?


Anger and frustration welled up within David when his friend told him, “My little sister is missing. My parents don’t know where she has gone.” Days, weeks, and months passed, and hope dwindled, as the young girl’s whereabouts remained unknown. The concerned villagers speculated, “Maybe she went to India.” “Maybe she got married.”
