The mission of Christian World Outreach is to participate with the body of Christ in responsible evangelism, to bring dignity, self worth and encouragement through leadership development, and to meet the physical needs of people through humanitarian assistance.
CWO was founded in 1977 after a visit to Haiti brought the devastating poverty and immense need to the attention of a group of individuals who felt that something had to be done to improve the conditions for the people of Haiti. Leaving Haiti with a sense they needed to do something that would make a difference, CWO was formed. At first CWO focused work on conducting evangelistic youth camps for young people (ages 13 to 30). CWO has now grown to an organization that provides medical clinics, vocational training, leadership development, children's feeding programs, HIV/AIDS prevention education, AIDS orphan assistance, youth camps, educational libraries, discipleship, evangelistic outreach and more. Currently, CWO operates in three African countries including Burkina Faso, Zambia, and Zimbabwe as well as continuing its work in Haiti.
