DID YOU KNOW?

As many as 685 million people could still be living in extreme poverty, existing on less than $2.15 a day.

World Bank, 2022

1.6 billion people—more than 20 percent of the world’s population—may lack adequate housing.

“First-ever United Nations Resolution on Homelessness” The United Nations, March 2020

Young children and adults living and sleeping on dirt floors are more likely to ingest fecal materials and come in contact with parasites than than those with concrete floors.

3.6 billion people (nearly half the world’s population) do not have access to safely managed sanitation in their home. 2 billion people lack access to safely managed drinking water at home.

CDC, 2022

Adequate shelter is: 'more than a roof over one’s head,' it means adequate privacy and space, physical accessibility, adequate security, structural stability and durability, adequate lighting, heating and ventilation, adequate basic infrastructure such as water, sanitation…'

"The design of housing & shelter programs." Journal of Urban Health: May 2007

940 million people do not have access to electricity globally, about 13%

Hannah Ritchie and Max Roser, “Access to Energy”, Our World in Data, 2022

Julie’s Heart Cry Ministry has chosen to partner with PF because of its biblical convictions to provide decent housing for the ultra-poor who are God's image bearers. The local church’s visibility is increased because of the many families who are now living in better housing. The Lord Jesus Christ and His word are magnified hence drawing many to come to faith in Jesus Christ in these communities.

Cyrus Mad-BondoCo-Founder, Julie’s Heart Cry

The relationship we have enjoyed with Paradigm has always been one of multiplication rather than addition or subtraction. God is glorified when we join our gifts and talents together to make them more than the sum of their parts. This has been one of the greatest joys of our involvement with Paradigm.

Mike MeyersFounder, Open Arms Worldwide

After our first meeting with Paradigm Foundation, we immediately knew they shared the same hearts as us—"to use our skills & abilities to impact more people with the Gospel"—and partnering with them was clearly what God was calling us to do. Ultimately, because of Paradigm Foundation's support of helping to replace the roof at our conference center in the Amazon Jungle, over 500 pastors will be empowered to reach their communities with the Gospel of Jesus

Chris HardyChief Program Officer, Justice and Mercy International

I have been on four trips to the Dominican Republic with Paradigm and seen up close how the Lord is using the ministry. Paradigm Foundation embodies what faithful service to the Lord is really about. Give prayerful consideration to supporting and getting involved in this great ministry!

Greg WhislerParadigm Supporter

The Paradigm Foundation trips I have been on have hugely impacted my view on global missions, my role within the local church, and ultimately how I serve God faithfully. I always come home from PF trips feeling both challenged in how I’ve committed (or not fully committed) to the work the Lord has for me, and excited about what God is doing in the world and the opportunity I have to co-labor with Him in it. I have truly loved the Paradigm trips I’ve been able to be a part of! I would highly encourage you to step out in faith and go on a trip, or find a way to get more involved in what PF is doing as they co-labor for the spread of the gospel in the world.

Dan GreshamParadigm Supporter

We tend to take for granted just what it means to have a home to return to at night. I’ve seen firsthand in the Dominican Republic and in Kenya what a difference the Paradigm Foundation is making. These homes give safety and security, not just for the families, but for their communities. Having a safe place for their family to sleep at night provides hope, it provides freedom, it empowers the recipients to dream of and create a better future for themselves and their families. It is an honor to be a part of what Paradigm Foundation is doing, I encourage you to carve out the time to go on a build trip ... don’t push it off to next year, make it happen.
