Poverty was never God’s plan. As believers, we are called to help the poor participating effectively in the eradication of systemic poverty.
As societal architects, we are looking for solutions that work. Solutions based on a Christian worldview and in bible principles. In this course, we will learn the moral, biblical, and economic foundation to help those trapped in poverty. We will discuss the importance of the role of charity (which does help), justice, and human development.
The question is, how can we effectively eliminate poverty? Through this course, your eyes will open to see what works and what does not work in the attempts many have made in the fight against poverty. In this course, you will learn how to help eradicate poverty with effective long-term results.
This course will inspire you and give you clear direction for you to become a part of the solution. We will learn how the gifts and destiny of every individual enable them to operate in their calling with the goal of serving and contributing to society.
Man, with the right education, financial help, and trade connections can come from a place of being helped to becoming a producer, from existing to living, from seeking a job to creating jobs. We will learn that nature and human creativity is their ability to come out of poverty.
In this course, we count with the collaboration of The Acton Institute, The Institute of Faith, Works, and Economics, Dr. Art Lindsley, Dr. Ismael Hdez. and Drs. de Maa.
Receive the divine blueprints that will help you be a part of the solution to eradicate poverty in remote communities as well as those that are near.

WHAT OTHERS HAVE SAID:
"Dignity.” That word jumped into my heart. I grew up in a country where social status (discrimination) is very strong, so you don't mingle with the "poor." When I became a Christian that started to change. I couldn't believe I was the same person because I even got baptized with my son in a Church in a very poor and humble area of Bogotá. All of these lectures are changing the way I see the poor now. Creative human beings, who have the same hopes and dreams as I do. God is changing all this through His love encouraging me to understand more that we are all alike in His eyes, made at His image and likeness."
