"I do not believe that we live the best life if our prosperity is only for ourselves. I have found that the best life is uncovered when we rid ourselves of the extra and pour the love we find without it into the people around us on the earth. It is then that you will start to see a world of peace & hope even in the darkest of situations because you will start to find it in your own soul."
- Jessica Hotz, co-founder
There are no simple answers to complex issues. Our model is a process of development that takes time, accountability and lots of love!
We always partner with like-minded national people in our development work. We do this best by building trusted relationships with them. It is worth the invested time to know that we are teaming up with people who want to use their empowerment to help others. We also believe in partnering with other organizations to execute certain projects. We can’t do it all, but together we can all make a big difference!
After forming a trusted relationship, we create opportunities with our national partners through Enterprise Start-Up. We believe in giving opportunity, not charity. An opportunity is a gift that can withstand the test of time and will keep blessing the community far after we’re gone.
With these opportunities, our partners are able to provide for their families and contribute to the development of their own community. For example, our national partners who own/operate the eco-leather business are now able to serve in children programs, conduct leadership trainings and help others in their community start businesses! Their opportunity now stimulates a process of holistic community transformation!
The most incredible part about this process is when our national partners use their opportunities to enrich the lives of others. They are now able to invest their knowledge and resources into their own communities and be the change! The people that we come alongside of to EMPOWER now become the very people to EMPOWER OTHERS!
Share the Love, Give Opportunity
