We create income-generating pathways for indigenous and vulnerable groups

PIPES International exercises compassion and facilitates those in a place of economic privilege to exercise compassion towards the vulnerable through financial support. We train and equip local leaders and churches with the necessary tools to enable them to take action and transform their communities. We empower and train communities to lift themselves out of poverty and start to create wealth.

Supporting Local Farmers

We have moved indigenous families from beggars to responsible citizens by supporting local farmers with training, manure, and providing quality seeds.
In Burundi, we assist over 300, moving them from poverty to food security. Our implementing partner, BCOM, trains farmers who plant maize, beans, potatoes, and vegetables. Farmers have harvested enough food to feed their families in the last two years and received an income after selling the surplus.

Our strategy is to train farmers and community leaders on improved farming techniques, understanding markets, financial literacy, and budgeting. These leaders then train farmers in their local communities, thus multiplying the impact.

Economic Opportunities

Women in rural African communities play a significant role in providing for their families. We have witnessed indigenous women working so hard for so little, thus struggling to feed their children.
To empower women, We've organized women groups in saving groups, established four sewing schools, and graduated 60 women in sewing schools in Rwanda and Pakistan. Currently, we have 20 students receiving sewing skills in Rwanda, 10 in Burundi, and 20 in Pakistan.
We also support women to start small businesses to support their families. A program beneficiary, Maria cooks assorted foods at home and sells them in the town. Maria supports her children's education and feeds her family with her earnings.

Providing Fresh Water

Water is the foundation of all sustainable development. It impacts many aspects, including health, hygiene, sanitation, well-being, education, economic development, and the environment. However, millions lack access to water for domestic and other uses. They continue to be trapped in abject poverty. Thus, drilling a well has far-reaching results and goes a long way in saving children and families by providing water to the community and schools and watering their livestock.

The Maasai women no longer walk for 8km one way to fetch water. They have put the time spent to more productive use to care for their children and earn an income.

Soap Production

In Burundi, one successful initiative is the soap-making project, which supports families and stabilizes them economically. It is inspiring to see families become economically independent using their learned skills. Tens of families make soap in their homes to use and sell surplus in neighboring villages and towns to get some income for food and medical needs. We plan to scale this initiative to other nations.


Help us bring about the economic empowerment of indigenous peoples all across the globe.
