We run on-the-ground initiatives in areas and times of particular opportunity
The National Pioneers Initiative (NPI) is a uniquely effective system of empowering indigenous mission workers to build self-sustaining churches.
The NPI vision is to partner with local churches and pioneers to impact nations for Christ through indigenous evangelism and discipleship, resulting in the establishment of sustainable, locally-run churches.
CV’s goal is to empower, together with our partners, 10,000 national pioneers who impact nations for Christ across the world. We currently have seven NPI projects in operation across Ukraine, Madagascar, Venezuela, Indonesia, Myanmar and Sri Lanka, with more than 550 pioneers in active service.
Today, almost 106,000 Ukrainian children live in residential institutions, 92% of whom have no hope of adoption or guardianship. The One Hope mentoring program seeks to support these children in their spiritual, relational and emotional development, and has to date provided almost 1,500 institutionalised children with life-changing relational support. At the heart of One Hope is the belief that institutionalised children don’t need gifts or toys as much as they need meaningful relationships. As such, each One Hope mentor cares for one child, whom they visit at least once per week. Our mentors are professionally trained to nurture young lives into a healthy maturity. After working with the Children’s Ombudsman, we were able to pass a bill of Parliament that has legitimised mentoring at a government level, ensuring the ongoing effectiveness of this life-changing project.
