Impact A Life Foundation

Impact A Life Foundation is formed on a simple principal and an optimistic wish... make an impact in the lives of people deprived of a resourceful environment. It is a Gospel centered ministry shared by the selfless individuals that are devoted to providing hope to the underprivileged communities. Wherever they may be.

It is hard to believe that:

  • $30 enables a child to attend school in the ILF literacy program
  • $50 provides an entire year of school supplies for a child
  • $100 pays for a life saving hernia repair surgery for one person
  • $150 pays for an entire year of medical attention and hygiene for a child
  • $200 provides an entire year of nutrition for a child
  • $300 covers pastoral/education training for a teacher
  • $2,500 builds a well providing drinking water to an entire village
  • $5,000 constructs two-classrooms that holds 50 students

we all can make an impact

However difficult it may seem at times, we all are called to bear one another's cross

Many resource rich communities around the world are plagued with poverty, illiteracy, and epidemic diseases. The corruption, greed and lawlessness often robs them from the opportunity to rise from the ashes of hopelessness; but no matter the geographic location, poverty has a certain pride, generosity, contentment, and in many cases shares a thirst for spiritual quench. However difficult it may seem at times, we all are called to bear one another's cross.

Humanity’s dream is contained; A warm meal, drinking water, medical attention, education or a legacy to brighten the future of the next generation. And sometimes only a caring prayer. Don’t we all share the same dream?

Even though we are just delving into the vast ocean of poverty, our ministry would not have been fulfilled without the presence of God and dedication of the selfless people who continually remind us that "this is in fact our world... and we all can make an impact".

  • 1 in 5 children are without access to safe water (

  • 1 in 7 children world-wide lack access to Health Services (

  • 47 percent of the children in India are underweight in the poorest urban quartile (Sage Journals, 2011)


Our goal is that together, in faith, we can continue to make an impact… one life at a time!
