Manna Project International

Nonprofit or community organization

Description

Manna Project International (MPI) is a volunteer driven 501(c)(3) non-profit organization serving international communities through holistic development. The MPI network is made up of three international sites, twelve university campus chapters, and a growing base of volunteer alumni.

Our international sites are run by 13-month volunteers called Program Directors. Our model is a collaborative community-based approach to development. By working within and alongside communities, our volunteers strive to promote each community's success while simultaneously learning from them. Our approach stresses holistic development, recognizing that the challenges facing these communities are multi-faceted. These challenges must therefore be addressed through a variety of disciplines, as well as a combination of direct service, local leadership, and broader policy change. Between Nicaragua, Ecuador, and Guatemala, our Program Directors run 31 different community programs in the areas of education, health, agriculture, business, and leadership development.

Supplementing our efforts abroad, MPI's university chapters serve communities near their campuses through local programs in addition to promoting our international sites by sending Spring Break trips and 4-week and 8-week summer volunteers.
