Partnering for Progress
The mission of Partnering for Progress is to help provide access to health care, education, sanitation, and clean water to residents in developing countries.
Through a process of integration between Partnering for Progress volunteers and the leaders of the communities we serve, we are able to recruit, train, and support local involvement until our programs are self-sustaining.
The global need for access to health care, clean water and education is massive. Tackling this issue alone is unfathomable. Through meaningful collaboration with local, regional, and international individuals, organizations, and government agencies, Partnering for Progress is able to realize effective change.
Partnering for Progress operates with a passionate commitment to our cause, to the communities in which we work, and to our devoted volunteers.
Our donors trust us to make the most effective decisions that will ultimately lead to successful initiatives in third world countries. We take that trust very seriously. Partnering for Progress is dutifully earning a reputation for being a trusted, financially accountable, and effective organization by providing measured success and thoughtful analysis of programs.
Partnering for Progress aims to be a catalyst for change, rather than a crutch. Our goal is to enable communities to break the long-standing cycle of poverty and poor health. Through the advancement of local technology and implementing culturally relevant, locally supported projects, we aim to create a sustainable future for the people of each community we serve.
