PCI’s mission is to empower people to enhance health,
end hunger, overcome hardship and advance women & girls.
The most vulnerable people in the world will have the power
to lift themselves out of poverty and to create vital, healthy
lives for their families and communities now and for the future.
PCI was founded along the U.S./Mexico border region in 1961. To this day, our focus has remained unchanged: PCI works in vulnerable communities to improve health and create long-term change by helping people help themselves. For six decades, thousands of dedicated individuals and groups have worked to make this vision a reality.
