Who We Are
Heirs of Christ Inc. is a Non-For Profit organization, co-founded by five families in 2021 with the sole purpose of improving lives in vulnerable communities around the world. In the face of the challenging living conditions in communities ravaged by diseases, economic hardships, social and political conflicts, especially in the developing world, we felt compelled to embrace a cause that is greater than our personal aspirations. Our mission is clear and simple: reach out to communities of any faith, culture, race and background around the world.
Unified by faith in Jesus Christ, we believe in our calling to bring light to the darkness by bringing people together to solve dire conditions in needy communities around the world. We partner with communities and organizations by providing them with knowledge and resources to better care for themselves in the most sustainable way. We believe every human being has a God giving potential to thrive, support her/his community and live with dignity and decency if given the proper means. We strive to promote excellence, diversity, probity, sustainability and accountability in all aspects of our work.
