"If we have no peace,
it is because we have forgotten
that we belong to each other."
- Mother Teresa
Eradicating Poverty Through Relationships
Through the ministry of accompaniment API will, in partnership with those on the margins, develop opportunities for education and advocacy. These opportunities will foster mutual relationships across socioeconomic boundaries deconstructing the divisive and misleading categories of the "haves" and "have nots." Together we will bear witness to an alternative community built on the truth that each person is created in the Divine Image and is needed to experience the commonwealth of God.
