We derive our projects from the strategy of our organization. We as an organization plant churches, support ministries, and send missionaries for the sake proclaiming Christ to every nation and people group. There are nearly 7,000 unreached people groups in the world. And more than 6,000 of them are in the 10/40 Window alone. We want the Church and the message of Christ to be accessible to every person. That is why our projects focus entirely on these groups exclusively in the 10/40 Window.
We fundraise for all of our projects on a yearly basis. All of the projects we begin undergo a strict vetting process to ensure that the churches, ministries, and missionaries that 10/40 Hope partners with are held to the highest degree of accountability, both financially and spiritually. We want every donor to feel comfortable with their contributions. That is why we strive to maintain top ratings with the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA) and with GuideStar.
