Today is the beginning of a month focused on love, and here at PCI it is no different.  We are immensely grateful for our donors and aren’t exaggerating when we say that you make our work possible.

When you add up what each of us can do when we commit to creating a brighter future for the world, we become a powerful force for making a difference in the lives of millions.

Every $5 that comes to PCI from an individual dramatically helps our organization to reach the most vulnerable people around the world. We pride ourselves on our highest ratings in transparency and accountability as well as the trust we have with the communities we work with, but it takes your support to make it all happen. Our programs continued to scale and reach remote communities over the last year thanks to donors like you.

You’ve helped us with projects like partnering with schools in San Diego to protect young girls from the dangers of human trafficking; providing nutritious meals to more than 200,000 schoolchildren in Guatemala, Nicaragua, and Tanzania every day; providing a home and education for children living on the streets of New Delhi; and empowering women socially and economically through our Women Empowered Initiative. Your support allows us to work at the local level to ensure our programs improve lives, and that those lives continue to thrive long after we depart.

Whether you are a new friend to PCI or a long-time supporter, thank you for giving PCI a piece of your BIG heart through your interest and investment in our work. On behalf of all of our staff around the world, we appreciate you being a part of the PCI family. I am excited to see what we can accomplish together in the coming year.
