A year of change
message from the ceo
No one has demonstrated more powerfully
throughout his life the commitment to change
than Nelson Mandela, one of the greatest moral
and political leaders of the movement to end
injustice and poverty. In a speech on behalf of
the campaign to Make Poverty History he said,
“…poverty is not natural. It is man-made and it
can be overcome and eradicated by the actions
of human beings.”
Project Concern International’s (PCI) Annual
Report this year grows out of our conviction
that we can turn the tide on disease, malnutrition, and poverty, of our overwhelming experience that has taught us if we provide the tools
and resources people need they will lift themselves out of poverty and create a healthy, secure
future for their families. Our commitment is,
without question, to changing lives.

Our Mission
Project Concern International’s mission is to prevent
disease, improve community health, and promote
sustainable development.
Our Vision
Motivated by our concern for the world’s most vulnerable
children, families, and communities, Project Concern
International envisions a world where abundant resources
are shared, communities are able to provide for the health
and well-being of their members, and children and families
can achieve lives of hope, good health, and self-sufficiency.
For PCI, 2008 was a year of positive change.
Our impact and our outreach continued to grow
as we deepened our programs for orphans and
vulnerable children and nutrition security in
countries like Zambia, Ethiopia, and
Malawi, while setting the stage for a large-scale,
multi-year HIV prevention campaign in South
4.5 million
Africa beginning in 2009. We continued to
press Washington policy-makers for an integrated HIV/AIDS and food/nutrition security
strategy and were invited to give testimony
before Congress on the re-authorization of the
PEPFAR bill, which was signed into law in July.
We also provided urgently needed humanitarian
assistance to people suffering in the aftermath
of hurricanes, earthquakes, and floods in Haiti,
Peru, Mexico, and India, and the 2007
wildfires in Southern California.
Despite the growing crisis in the global economy and the personal challenges we are all
facing, our donors supported our work more
strongly than ever. The impact was never more
apparent than in meetings we had last summer
with an agricultural cooperative in rural Nicaragua, a women’s savings group in Addis Ababa,
Ethiopia, and a micro-credit group in Jaipur,
India. The stories these people shared with us
were truly inspiring, stories of extraordinary
change, of their lives changed for good.
Thank you for your confidence, your generosity,
and for all you are doing for PCI.

In 2008, Project Concern International reached a record 4,532,431 people
worldwide, providing them with the resources, tools, and knowledge they
need to overcome poverty.
Project Concern International 2008 Annual Report - 1
Changing lives
engage. empower. transform.
hese words represent how Project
Concern International operates
and defines itself, and that definition guides the organization’s
work. The relationships between these three
concepts are closely linked. All three are essential to achieve real change, change that endures
over time, change that will break the cycle of
poor health and poverty. Our work is fueled
by the belief that we can break the cycle that
continues to keep communities desperately in
need and dependent on external support.
Change is more than just an idealistic vision.
For change to be real and true we must address
the underlying root causes of disease, malnutrition, and poverty. It requires a complete
understanding of local culture that comes from
listening, patience, and facilitative leadership.
In addition, it must build on what is going
right, what is positive and possible, rather than
simply fixing what is wrong.
True engagement, empowerment, and transformation come from a deep respect for diversity
and the understanding that the sharing of
knowledge and expertise creates real synergy,
greater impact, and lasting results. Project
Concern International does not view the people
and communities we serve as victims. We help
them to understand that they are the solution
to the problems they face, and we work to
minimize barriers that prevent the change they
We work to unleash the power that lies within
each person, and every community, facilitating a process of transformation that is both
empowering and engaging—not only for
the people and communities we serve, but
for those of us who work for Project Concern
International as well.
We work to unleash the power that lies within
each person, and every community...
Project Concern International 2008 Annual Report - 2
1.4 billion
In 2008, the World Bank estimated that at least 1.4 billion people, roughly one
sixth of the global population, currently live at or below the poverty line.

society in motion
f one person can change the world, what
could hundreds, or thousands, or millions do if bound together by a common
purpose? At Project Concern International, we believe that change begins with each
and every one of us, but we also understand the
collective power of a family, a community, or a
country to be an even stronger force. When a
society is motivated to work together toward a
certain outcome, the impact is felt by all.
The power of community
Reshma Devi, 36, is not unlike many women living in India today. She and her husband Arun live with their children in
Brahmpur village in the district of Bihar. Arun, the family’s sole bread winner, does not earn enough to cover the family
expenses, and he also suffers from tuberculosis, so much of his income is spent on medical expenses. The family’s poor
economic condition forced Arun to search for work outside of Bihar and, when he left, all of the family responsibilities
fell on Reshma’s shoulders. Aside from running a large family alone, Reshma faced numerous challenges such as repairing her home after the monsoon flooding and retrieving water daily from a local well far away from her home.
As a part of Project New Life, Project Concern International began working in Brahmpur, where Reshma became a
member of a PCI-supported self-help group. This group enables Reshma and other women participants to discuss family
issues, as well as receive emotional support from each other. Reshma is also able to participate in cash-for-work activities, such as debris cleaning and soil filling, which is helping her generate income and create some savings. Reshma told
us that she now has fewer worries because she has money to feed her family, safe drinking water from the hand pump
installed near her home by PCI, and a sanitary kit which has helped her family become aware of basic hygiene and
sanitation issues. Most importantly, after engaging with others in her community, she knows she is not alone and she has
found much-needed support and encouragement.
Through partnerships, group trainings, and
facilitation, Project Concern International works
with individuals, non-governmental organizations, private companies, country governments,
military groups, and communities to promote
lasting change. Through ground breaking
techniques such as social mobilization, creating local leadership teams, or forming women’s
self-help groups, Project Concern International
is effectively engaging people from all walks of
life to better understand the issues they face and
determine what they themselves can do to take
action for change now and into the future.
In Africa, we are helping villages address the
issue of HIV/AIDS through street theater
and workshops that educate people about the
disease and help them understand how they can
stop the spread of the virus. In Central America,
we are bringing communities together to build
new roads, much-needed water wells and latrines. In India, we are on-foot in impoverished
communities providing education, immunizations, care and support to prevent polio, as
well as home-based care to people living with
HIV/AIDS. And, in Indonesia, we have built
rural health posts to provide children with vital
disease-preventing immunizations and women
with information about hygiene and nutrition.
Our organization does not view itself as a sole
igniter of change, but an entity that motivates
people living in desperate poverty to believe in
their own capabilities. Women can be powerful,
men can provide for their families, children can
be assured a healthy life, and communities can
support each other if they are fully engaged and
2.6 million
Part of an engaged effort to end the polio epidemic in India, Project Concern
International reached just over 2.6 million people with lifesaving education and
immunizations in 2008.

restoring strength and pride
illions of families are entangled
in a web of poverty, illiteracy,
environmental degradation,
and constant health threats
created by a lack of clean water and nutritious
food. Many have little or no access to vital
health care and are beset by devastating diseases
such as HIV/AIDS, polio, malaria, tuberculosis,
and many others.
Empowerment is key to breaking this cycle. To
empower is to provide individuals and communities with the tools and hope needed to take
command of their lives, to find the strength to
improve their surroundings, and to take charge
of the change they seek.
Thousands of people around the world are
currently benefiting from Project Concern
International’s economic empowerment
programs. Women in India are receiving
microloans to start businesses, training to enhance their skills, and emotional support from
their peers. Farmers in Central America are
learning new ways to grow stronger crops and
forming cooperatives to become competitive in
local and global marketplaces. In Africa, caretakers of children orphaned by AIDS have the
opportunity to come together as a community
to form savings groups, access educational opportunities in math and literacy, and create business opportunities that allow them to nurture
and support the growing number of children in
their care.
Project Concern International is finding
innovative ways to ensure people worldwide are
living stronger, healthier, more empowered lives
by providing the resources, education, training, and opportunity necessary for stability and
independence. Because of these opportunities
and many others, people are rising up from the
depths of poverty empowered to make a better
life for themselves, their children, and their
62 thousand
Project Concern International reached just over 62,000 people in 2008 with
microloans and training that allowed them to start or expand their own
businesses and increase household income, as much as three times.

The difference opportunity makes
The women of a PCI-trained, savings-led self help group in the Zambian village of Chilukamulonga can best be
described by one word: empowered. Ever since this particular group was created three years ago, 25 women have proven
to be nothing short of a blessing for the people – especially the orphans and vulnerable children – in their village.
Project Concern International provided these women with the tools and training they needed to develop microenterprise
ventures and manage their own village banks. Given skills in reading, writing, and basic financial literacy, these women
came to see themselves differently. Bound together as a group, they are generating real change in their lives, creating
their own businesses, and saving money.
Because of their success, these women have invested their time and money in supporting the young children of the village by aiding in the construction of a new school. The women donated resources such as grass and stones in addition to
drawing water to mold bricks. The school not only provides education and a safe place for children – its school feeding
program ensures children are not going hungry in a time when food is scarce and many are suffering from malnutrition.
Many of the women personally cook the meals for the children with pride, happy to support their communities and
invest in the care of a new generation, one that will not be left behind by the scourge of HIV/AIDS but will be
empowered to take responsibility for its own health and those of generations to come.

change from within
t Project Concern International, we
strive to create change that builds
upon foundations already laid. We
do not view the transformation of
a person, a family, or a community as something
that solely comes from outside forces, but rather
something that comes from within the person,
the family, and the community being served. We
work to nurture, guide, and support the change
that we believe is just waiting to happen, to unleash the potential for transformation that exists,
but has yet to be seen.
One of one billion: Martha’s story
Each day, Martha must choose between collecting water and selling vegetables, but for her the answer is always difficult.
“We must eat but water is life,” she says.
Martha lives in Tanzania’s Babati District, where less than 50 percent of the residents have access to clean water, leading
to a variety of illnesses such as diarrhea, cholera, and trachoma. Martha spends five hours each day drawing water from a
river bed, competing with other women in the village, as well as cattle owners, for this life-giving resource. She considers herself lucky to get four buckets of water per day for cooking, washing, and drinking. The community is tense, says
Martha, as standing in queues to collect water for such long periods of time creates a lot of stress. Although the women
in Martha’s village have formed a group to promote the development of their community and address critical issues, like
the lack of a nearby water source, they have little time to meet due to the time spent each day collecting water.
Martha is just one of over one billion people who lack access to any source of water within one kilometer of their home.
But Project Concern International aims to transform this current reality in Martha’s village and throughout Tanzania’s
Babati District by providing access to safe water and latrines to over 30,000 local community members. This effort to
bring new sources of water is made possible by a grant from the Starbucks Foundation - Ethos Water Fund. Working
with our partners in Tanzania, we hope to measurably influence the living standard throughout Babati District, developing a service model that can be adapted for other communities in Tanzania.
In the countries where we work we meet people
every day who are desperate for change, mothers
and fathers who want not only to make a better
life for themselves, but who are also ready and
willing to put in the work it takes to achieve that
goal of transformation.
In Africa we are helping women transform from
victims of abuse and violence into women of
strength and ability. We are helping communities ravaged by HIV/AIDS regain strength and
health by providing access to nutritious food and
antiretroviral therapy. In Central America, we
are helping infants and mothers survive child
birth by providing education on safe, sanitary
delivery techniques and newborn care as well as
access to healthcare. In Indonesia, we are helping
transform the way villages prepare for disasters
and manage scarce water supplies. In India, we
are working to ensure that children who live on
the streets have shelter, food, and a chance for a
reasonable education.
Although our work is varied, we have an overriding goal: to break the cycle of poverty within
communities that face the threat of disease, lack
of water, and food, and the difficulty of little or
no economic opportunity. Successful transformation can be seen in every community in which we
work – lower maternal and child deaths, a rise
in household incomes, the reduction of disease,
greater access to clean water, and the ability to
grow more productive crops. Most of all, we find
people who were once living in despair now living lives of opportunity and better health, hope,
and prosperity.
