About Us

Dear Friends,
In our strides to transform the lives of the world’s poorest children and their families, our vision, mission and foundational beliefs are the driving force of who we are and what we consistently achieve through our efforts. We recognize that the only difference between “them” and “us” is opportunity. We need your partnership. We hope what you see moves your heart to compassion that is then followed by action to transform a life and give a child hope.

The Joseph Assignment provides effective tools for sustainable development.Green technology is at the fundamental core of our community development blueprint. From a planning perspective, we realize that we cannot achieve sustainable eco-friendly development without delivering solutions that meet the residents’ commercial, agricultural, and educational needs. We achieve our development goals through extensive project planning, community participation, and the implementation of initiatives and programs that shape the framework for a sustainable future that transform the lives of God’s people for generations to come.100% of all contributions are used to directly impact the lives of people living within these remote villages. None of the resources are used for administrative overhead. Secondly, we utilize the intellectual capital of professionals and specialist in education, medicine, and agriculture living within the country and the USA to assist us in developing our infrastructure plan and to implement our developmental objectives.

The key to our strategy is maintaining the operational vision of moving beyond the model of maintaining subsistence to one of sustainable development.
