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.

With an ongoing effort and the support of bighearted partners, we have been fulfilling some of these basic needs that are so often neglected; Christian education, building schools, providing hygiene classes, housing, food and health care to name a few. ILF’s holistic approach is to attend to both the humanitarian as well as the spiritual needs of less privileged communities. May our efforts the first step towards not only establishing a Christ center faith and self-dependence, but also empowering individuals to improve the living conditions of their families, communities and, ultimately, their future generation.

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
  • $150 pays for an entire year of medical attention and hygiene for a child
  • $200 provides an entire year of needed nutrition for a child
  • $300 covers pastoral/education training for a teacher
  • $430 can provide an entire year of schooling, Medical and Nutrition for a child
  • $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".
