Our MissionThe mission of PurePath Mission International is to improve the health and life opportunities of at-risk youth in our community and beyond.
Three years ago, in a casual discussion with group of friends about the poverty cycle in our community, we discovered that we were all aching to help but did not know how to do it or where to begin. We all have made donations to goodwill, disaster relief organization and churches. We also have tried to help here and there with no big result. In 2015, a visit to a Rural Local Government Area in Mbaise, West Africa, was a game changer and was distressed by the challenges facing youth growing up in this community, realizing that support was needed to truly help overcome poverty long term, and that education/skills is the key to success.
So on this day, we decided to make a difference in the lives of others and direct them to the right path. The goal was to change the life of one person at a time, which brought about our organization name, PurePath.
PurePath Mission (PPM) was incorporated in the state of California, is a 501(©)(3) nonprofit and non-governmental organization that has been serving the impoverished community for over three years. PurePath is unique in that it supports impoverished families via the local people….possible neighbors, friends and others who are a part of the community. To date, 10 families have been supported by Pure Path, of which we expect all of them to become self-sufficient within three to five years after being accepted in our program. Our mission is to improve the daily lives of the less fortunate and disadvantaged youth and their families in the Community by overcoming three critical barriers in the poverty cycle: poor, no education, no skills, poor housing, and family instability.
We believe that the best way to address poverty is to expand education opportunities that enable all children to succeed in school, careers, and life.
To provide the skills development and activities necessary for disengaged youth that are not actively engaged in education, training, or workforce, so that they become productive adults.
Compassion to help and serve
