One 17 International
To build and operate schools for the left behind in places of urgent physical and spiritual need.
We see hope through education for the left behind. We see open doors for students, regardless of age, gender, ability, or economic status. We see students discovering their role in God’s story and stepping through doors of opportunity to transform cultures and communities.
OUR CORE VALUES
Every story and every voice matters. We share the stories of our staff, students, volunteers, and communities in a way that glorifies God.
Young or old, staff or student or volunteer, we believe that God created every person with intention, purpose, and a story to tell. We equip people to discover that purpose and step into their role in God’s story.
“Not my job” isn’t in our vocabulary. When we see something that needs to be done—whether it’s standing against injustice or cleaning a classroom—we glorify God by rising to the challenge and taking action.
God equips us to be the light of the world by giving us a specific role to play. By pursuing partnership and collaboration, we multiply our impact as we lock arms with other churches, organizations, and individuals.
