Creating a job produces a sustainable means for a person to provide for their needs. The old proverb, “give someone a fish and they eat for a day… teach someone to fish and they eat for a lifetime,” affirms the value of work. But in regions of great scarcity, there are insufficient opportunities, education, and resources for people to provide for their basic needs. We’re going beyond the proverb by “providing the pole.” Marketplace Ministries Worldwide creates jobs as a platform for transformation and ministry to the whole person.

MMW jobs offer a safe work environment in the fight against trafficking. On-the-job Bible study and sharing the Gospel transforms hearts, minds and bodies. A job builds personal dignity and contributes to family stability. On-the-job training in personal and vocation skills lifts employees to greater self sufficiency.
