Mission/Vision Statement of Concern America

 

 


Concern America is an international development and refugee aid organization that provides long-term, community-based development and support to economically impoverished communities throughout the world.  What distinguishes the work of Concern America is its belief that the transformation of impoverished communities comes from engaging local members in the solutions to their problems.  Concern America does this by training community members in health, education, construction, and income-generation, so that the villagers themselves become the health care providers, educators, well-diggers, cooperative members, etc. 

Since its establishment in 1972, Concern America has worked in fifteen countries on three continents, making a measurable difference in the lives of more than two million people in thousands of communities.  In this country, Concern America infuses a global perspective into social justice education, health, and fair-trade programs.  Concern America is based in Santa Ana, California.
