  • Partners Worldwide began with a simple question: “Is there a way for businesspeople to become part of the solution to ending poverty, instead of being seen as part of the problem?”

    In 1994, Partners for Christian Development, now Partners Worldwide, was formed when Kenyan and American business people met to establish a loan fund for small to medium enterprises (SMEs), a business savings and loan cooperative, and partnerships between entrepreneurs.

    Partners for Christian Development grew out of World Renew (then Christian Reformed World Relief Committee). In 2005, responding to the increasing need to engage business people and professionals, Partners Worldwide was established as an independent faith-based business ministry, though it continues to partner with the Christian Reformed Church.

    Partners Worldwide has expanded beyond its East Africa beginnings, and currently has active partnerships in countries around the world.
