Description:

We partner with local law enforcement in developing world to protect the poor from violence. IJM assists victims of oppression regardless of their religious beliefs, ethnicity, or gender, and evangelism is not a formal part of the assistance we provide. However, IJM is a faith-based organization whose employees and interns believe that God is actively involved in guiding the successful planning and execution of our mission. We believe that prayer and our reliance on God is key to our success, and that group prayer is an integral part of our work.
