Livelihoods (Job Creation)

Livelihoods (Job Creation)


Help create jobs which in turn alleviates poverty


The creation of a livelihood (job creation) is an effective way to lift people out of poverty.

A number of Christian missions are working to create or support jobs in developing countries as follows:

  • Vocation training - provide training in the skills needed to obtain a job.
  • Microfinance - lending money to an entrepreneur or small businesses on good terms to help start or grow a business. 
  • Business creation - create a business with the intention of creating good jobs for locals
  • Equipping people with ‘tools’ for their trade
"May the favor of the Lord our God rest on us; establish the work of our hands for us— yes, establish the work of our hands."
—Psalms 90v17
