Community Development BOKS

A Foundation for the Developing World

Many missionaries and Christian aid workers have expressed frustration that they are often treating only the symptoms of disease and poverty. Seldom are they addressing root causes or the ignorance that causes sickness to proliferate in a community. Others lack food or clean drinking water simply because they do not know how to take advantage of basic no cost techniques that will filter their water and release the potential of their land.

BOKS stands for "Building Others through Knowledge and Service". This is a revolutionary new video-based curriculum designed to help lift communities out of poverty. Imagine taking the cumulative knowledge of doctors, nutritionists and agricultural experts, who have worked among the world's poor, and pooling that information into a single, practical and easy-to-use video curriculum in any language.


BOKS is a complete community development package which covers topics which are fundamental to healthy living in the developing world.
