Here at PCI, we're asking our community to help us continue our transformational work around the globe. You can be part of making a difference by donating to us tomorrow in honor of #GivingTuesday.

We’re excited to announce that the U.S. Agency for International Development and +Google.org are investing $1.3 million and $750,000, respectively, to expand our innovative SAPARM program. SAPARM works to reduce hunger in Ethiopia and Tanzania by equipping pastoralists with maps from satellites. These up-to-date maps help pastoralists better find grazing land and have cut their livestock mortality in half.
PCI is helping thousands of pastoralists in East Africa reduce livestock mortality in half through a partnership with Google and USAID.

Project Concern International paired up with Keurig Green Mountain to help coffee farmers in Nicaragua have better lives.

Our hometown of San Diego is one of the top 13 high-intensity child prostitution cities in America. Let's change that. ‪#‎HumanTrafficking‬
Within this beautiful city, there’s also an ugly problem silently happening in plain sight. Human trafficking. We're working to keep girls safe.
