About Us

Life In Abundance International (LIA) is an African-founded, faith-based community development organization. We exist to mobilize the local Church to restore health, renew hope and inspire lasting transformation for the world's most vulnerable families.

This is achieved through LIA’s transformational development approach that requires community ownership and sustainable solutions. LIA, in partnership with local Church and civic leadership, determines communities’ most significant needs and then trains, supports and works alongside community members to meet those needs for the long-term.

Working in more than 30 communities in 14 countries throughout Africa and the Caribbean, LIA serves all people, regardless of religion, race, ethnicity, or gender.

We see a day when the communities we serve now are equipped to support and sustain its members long after we leave.
