OUR MISSION: WORLDWIDE SELF-RELIANCE THROUGH EDUCATION AND MENTORING
We empower individuals and communities worldwide to lift themselves from generational poverty and become self-reliant, model citizens.
“Becoming self-reliant will heal the world of so much suffering. This is work that we can all support.”Silvia Allred
SELF-RELIANCE POSITIVELY EFFECTS FAMILIES FOR GENERATIONS
It’s been said that if you give a man a fish, you’ll feed him for a day– but if you teach a man to fish you’ll feed him for a lifetime.
Being involved with Lifting Generations means you help “teach people to fish”. Our committment is to provide a lasting solution to end poverty. Clients in our programs take classes to learn employable skill sets, then receive 12 – 18 months of mentoring to find a job or start a business, begin building a savings and paying off debt. Our students and mentoring clients end up lifting others along the way.
WE COMBINE 3 UNIQUE METHODS THAT CREATE LASTING CHANGE
SERVICE AS A "CURRENCY"
WE LEVEL THE PLAYING FIELD FOR ALL AND PRACTICE SELF-RELIANCE FROM THE START
Students and clients “pay” for their education by serving in their community to earn “Service Currency”. Each student must complete 40 hours of service prior to receiving their certificate of completion.
Each step of the way our clients are learning to become self-reliant with a supportive community of teachers, classmates and mentors.
ONLINE and CLASSROOM EDUCATION
KNOWLEDGE EMPOWERS PEOPLE TO CHANGE THEMSELVES AND FUTURE GENERATIONS
A student in our program can complete courses in English, Adanced English, Sales and Customer Service, Computer Skills, Graphic Design or Enterprise Creation. Afterwards they graduate to a 12 – 18 month mentoring partnership.
ONE ON ONE MENTORING
MENTORING HELPS THE LEARNER BECOME THE TEACHER, AND BUILDS COMMUNITY
Clients are mentored on how to track income and expenses, pay off debt, and set aside money for savings each month. They learn how to find and secure a job or how to start thier own small business.
In 2017 every $1.00 donated created $3.80 of economic impact for families.
With 15 years of experience we have developed methods proven to create results for families and communities.
“I am involved with Lifting Generations because I believe that one of the greatest needs in the world is for individuals and families to receive opportunities for education and to learn and practice principles of self-reliance. In doing so, lives are changed as cycles of poverty are broken and replaced with self-reliance practices and new opportunities that are passed down to rising generations.
I have been to Latin America and have met with both participants and administrators there. I have seen first-hand the unique and powerful way in which we are blessing and changing lives by providing such opportunities for these wonderful people. I would like to see thousands, even millions more experience the same.”Brody Holbrook
