About SALT

SALT is an acronym for Shared Accountability, Lending, and Teaching.
By reaching out to people in material poverty through microloans, savings groups, agricultural programs, vocational schools, and Christ-centered teaching our goal is to walk alongside clients, helping them use the resources God has placed in their care without depending on others.

Bible-based teaching is the central focus of the SALT program. SALT clients receive regular teaching on the importance of following Jesus in everyday life.

Our two main objectives:
• Help people discover ways to provide for their families
• Pattern and teach a Biblical way of life
