No one is more motivated or better equipped to create change than the person whose life and future is at stake. And no one is smarter about what help is needed than the one who will benefit from that boost. At Mercy Corps, our role is to help catalyze the change that communities want to see. It is their potential, their energy, and their ideas that ultimately will conquer the difficulties they face. Our job is to listen, assist and connect them with the resources that will help them turn crisis into opportunity.
As you can see from the examples above, our efforts — and theirs — are making a difference. These are the people we serve — and the programs that work.
