Mission Statement

The mission of Be The Change You Seek.Org is very simple: to support those projects in rural communities in developing countries that create self-sufficiency with a focus of income generation.

Projects are analyzed based on several factors including viability, innovativeness, and relevance to the communities’ affected and future growth. Those projects that have met these standards are eligible for support with funds raised through the Dollars for Development campaign.

The goal is as the proverb says ‘If you give a man a fish, you feed him for a day. If you teach him how to fish you feed him for a lifetime.” It is with this intent that projects are supported. It is more effective to give those projects a hand up in becoming self-sufficient, rather than giving a hand out where support is constantly needed.

Thank you for your support in helping others to help themselves!
