Guiding Values

We are God Led.

ALI is an independent, non-denominational Christian organization committed to following God's leading in all we do.


We are Relationally Focused.

ALI works in harmony with all who support our mission, believing people are more important than projects, and coming as co-learners to the cultures we serve.


We Transform Through Empowerment.

ALI’s utmost goal is to assist people to embrace the truth that they are created in the image of God with the ability to make well-reasoned decisions, which bring glory to God and healing to His world.


We are Collaborative Partners.

ALI values the contribution of every person in every community we serve, and assumes leadership only in cooperative dialogue with existing leaders, without imposing resources, knowledge, or management in a spirit of paternalism.



"God has made my personal and professional life through the ALI training both mind-opening and practical in approach. My method of teaching now involves a lot of hands-on activities, I am asking more effective communication and critical thinking questions which have enhanced the learning process. The spiritual aspect of critical thinking is quite exciting to the students, but is also challenging. The students are now learning to embrace what they are learning through applications to real life, and relate the learning to the spiritual aspect of what God wants. This will go a long way in improving their personal and professional life after school."
