About The Reckoning

The Reckoning International began exploring innovative and lasting solutions to poverty in 1998. Working with our Nepali partners and generous donors around the world, we redeemed 150 Tharu people from slavery. Helping them to live in freedom and develop livelihoods was where our work began.

Since that time, we have been slowly growing into an efficient organization that is overcoming poverty with opportunity. Through micro-loans, business training, and development initiatives, we’ve pioneered successful economic development projects in impoverished areas of Central America, Ukraine, Uganda, Burundi, Kenya, Egypt, Colombia, and Brazil.

We’re finding that the real solutions to poverty are empowering, sustainable, and found among the poor themselves. As a faith-based international development organization, we’re rethinking how global poverty is addressed… and we’re seeing results. People are thriving when given the opportunity to work, become self-supporting, and become generous to others.

"Overcoming poverty is not a gesture of charity, it is an act of justice. It is the protection of a fundamental human right, the right to dignity and a decent life. While poverty persists, there is no true freedom."
