OUR CORE VALUES

lightbulb

We believe God is alive, moving, and working. We’ve been invited to partner with Him to fight for justice and to be a light in dark places.

leaves

We believe our work will be incomplete, for we are sowing seeds to be harvested by others. We believe there are countless more who will pick up where we leave off. This is liberation. This belief enables us to do something today and to do it very well.

faces

We believe the world needs people just like you. People who are inspired and empowered to confront the most pressing challenges of our time. It's tempting to wish for the heroes of our history, but it is us who are called to these troubling times. People like us whom God has chosen for today.

 


Our Name

These Numbers Have Faces

Every day we hear terrible statistics that document the harsh reality of our world. We chart war, calculate disease, analyze famine, and graph slavery. Africa is often at the heart of these calculations as we’ve all seen the numbers about Africa that paint a negative picture of the continent.

These Numbers Have Faces

Our name expresses a world changing idea. We don’t see Africa as hopeless, we see it full of life and color, light and opportunity. While figures and data are important tools to measuring complex social issues, we believe that there are people behind the statistics. A number is difficult to connect with, but when we see those numbers as real people, we find a purpose that compels us to action.
