Our impact


We work from a Christian worldview. We believe in a God of love and want to contribute where our help is relevant. It is important to us, in every project, to see how we can share this love through the company and help people develop spiritually.


Worldpartners helps with setting up and maintaining businesses. A successful business provides many economic opportunities for the region: income, jobs and the expanding technical knowledge offer many opportunities for future enterprises.


We encourage entrepreneurs with whom we collaborate to be socially involved. They can express this involvement in two ways: through management that respects people and the environment, and by using company profits to support social projects.
