Self-Empowerment Reduces Poverty
Fellowships provide sewing machines and rickshaws indiscriminately to the poor, enabling impoverished men and women to support their families and contribute to their community. The followers receiving these sewing machines and rickshaws are taught to tithe to their fellowships, enabling the fellowship to give back to the community in an accelerated fashion through more sewing machines, rickshaws, and literacy courses.
