Poverty's Cycle

Around the world, more than 500 million workers struggle to make one U.S. dollar a day, according to the International Labor Organization, which is not enough to provide food, shelter, clothing and education for a family. Begging and living hand-to-mouth is a way of life for too many.

What We Do

The solution is to give men and women a solid foundation to earn a living. CBN sponsors livelihood training, small business development, and microcredit grants to address a community's needs and create employment opportunities. By coupling this training with teaching in life skills and building relationships, we can break the cycle of poverty. Over 4,400 people in 11 countries received training in 2010.

Be Part of the Answer

By giving to CBN, you are investing in a family’s future. You are teaching a man to fish, as the proverb goes, and making a difference for a lifetime.
