IPM works across borders of faith, culture, and economic circumstance with children, women, and youth to create partnerships that build justice, peace, and hope.
IPM partners with community-based organizations around the world that serve the needs of children, women, and youth. We strive to provide opportunities for partnership that are personal and effective, in part, through our Immersion Experience Program, allowing donors and friends to engage directly with our Partners from across the globe.
Over the past four decades, IPM have achieved its goals, by partnering with 306 grassroots, community-based organizations in over 40 countries across the world working across the border of faith, culture and economic circumstances. Through a combination of seed funds, technical assistance and personal engagement, IPM aims to empower individuals and their communities to initiate and implement projects to improve their living standards and address social injustices. IPM places high value on building strong personal relationships with the Project Partners to ensure mutual trust and understanding as well as focuses on ensuring support mechanisms that transcend finances.
At the moment, IPM partners with more than 60 Projects in 25 countries to work with over 60,000 of the most marginalized individuals around the world. The longest running partnerships have developed domestically in Ohio and Missouri as well as internationally in Chile, El Salvador and Lebanon, just to name a few.
Apart from supporting projects, IPM also organizes Immersion Experience Programs, which are short-term trips to many of the IPM-supported communities, during which participants have the opportunity to discover both the locals and the projects. The Immersion Programs’ goals are to ensure cross-cultural exchanges and to allow participants to walk in solidarity with the local communities, to build empathy and solidarity.
