ABOUT

Bringing Resources to People in Need

WIND is a Christian, non-profit organization which was established in 2007 to look beyond the confines of typical solutions and address issues associated with poverty in the Highlands of Guatemala.

We have a basic philosophy when it comes to responding to the needs of those in poverty. When needs are placed before us, our first response is to connect the need with people/organizations which are equipped to respond well. Then we quietly get out of the way. If we discover a gap between the need before us and a ready solution, we will not hesitate to stand in the gap through creation of programming.

We set a high priority on partnerships. Resources are limited and using them wisely is required. Therefore we look for partnerships which allow God’s resources to stretch further through the elimination of duplication; seeking efficiencies in the use of limited resources.

Education is the most sustainable solution in helping people out of poverty. We acknowledge that it is important to respond to urgent needs immediately. Food, shelter and medicine often can not wait until tomorrow. But education can make a permanent positive change to the next generation.  Therefore we desire to remain focused on education of children and adults.

James 1:27 – Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father is this; to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained by the world.
