We believe that successful and sustainable development comes from the bottom-up, not the top-down. PEP offers the poor a hand up, not a hand out. The people we serve are at the center of our development model. Our Programs—which include land grants, livestock rearing, nutritional support, health services, housing services, small grants, educational support, and many other elements—are made to fit the needs and goals of the development partners (the term we use for our poor). PEP recruits young women and men, trains them, and employs them to help the poorest of their own communities.
PEP’s vision is of a strong and united village society with respect for all members, social awareness and which offers a standard of life for all which allows them to meet their basic needs.
PEP’s mission is to create a model of rural development that can be replicated in any area of the country – one that will facilitate the creation of the strong society PEP envisions.
PEP’s goal is poverty eradication, which is instrumental in affording all members of society their due respect and the necessities of life.

  • To ensure the creation of new employment opportunities and that economic assets and income go to the poor whenever possible.
  • Promote and improve the environment.
  • To promote women’s equality, healthy child development, and leadership among the rural poor.
