We are always looking to expand in the areas in which we work. We desire to come alongside those in need and to support groups that want to see the world changed. We believe that God has called us as a ministry to be a voice for the impoverished, therefore we are passionate about helping in any way we can, wherever we can. We believe in empowering people to take ownership of their lives by giving them the tools needed to step out of poverty and into life at its fullest. To bring people fully out of poverty, we believe we must focus on their spiritual needs as well as the physical and find ways to nurture and encourage both.
Pick A Pocket is passionate about pioneering new projects and partnering with those that already exist in developing countries that are run by people with like-minded Kingdom goals. Empowering people to change their situation by stepping into the truth and freedom, found in the Kingdom of God, is a major part of seeing ground-breaking change in a nation. Over the years we have started and overseen projects like- The Rahab Cafe which served as an alternative job opportunity for young girls in prostitution, a rescue effort called Drawn From Water that saved babies from being killed by tribe leaders because of tribal beliefs and The Koshe Project, an after school discipleship center for young girls working in the trash dumps that provides a safe place to come and find fellowship, education and support for their families. We have also come alongside other organizations and pre-existing projects around the world, spreading hope and Kingdom truth to street children, HIV victims, orphans, the homeless and more.
The following projects are either no longer in operation or have been handed on to new leadership. However, for stories to never die, they must continue to be told!
