Our region is one of beautiful beaches, mountains, and rich biodiversity. Usually areas like ours are full of tourists and tourism businesses. Yet, due to the history and current political situation of our region, it can sometimes still feel “undiscovered” by the outside world. The region is almost 100% Islamic and the vast majority of the people here have yet to hear the good news of the Kingdom of God. Our region is also very poor. The majority of the region's population (77 percent) lives in rural areas, where almost one-third of households live below the poverty line. The impact of poverty is particularly seen in children suffering from acute or chronic malnutrition.
One Collective is bringing non-profits, schools, businesses, and even the government together to see lives and communities transformed by the power of God. In addition, we are working with national believers to see a disciple-making movement take root in the region.
