Helps International is a nonprofit providing enduring programs of practical, social and spiritual value to people in the developing world through a system of partnership and mutual responsibility.
THE HELPS DIFFERENCE
We are guided by our strong commitment to service and the belief that we serve others best by working alongside them as they move toward independence. We know that handouts don’t work–but helping people help themselves does.
Since 1984, we have worked on the ground in Guatemala to create quality programs and lasting partnerships. Because sustainability is at the core of everything we do, when you change lives with Helps, you change them for generations to come.
To use our resources most effectively, we rigorously evaluate our programs to ensure they bring value to communities and can be replicated on a large scale. We don’t just invest in programs–we invest in models for lasting change.
