As an organization, we receive no government contribution. Each program is supported by our faith in God through donations, volunteer work and the development of sustainable projects.
Research, development, optimization and process improvement have been encouraged in each of the programs developed.
Professionals from different disciplines and the ministerial team in general add their knowledge and experience of the highest caliber to the programs.
However, divine intervention, with His grace, love and power has made possible the changes we see in the lives of the people who receive the opportunities provided to them. Thus, ASCRIGERE – Love in the Streets Ministries rises as a pillar from the ground of the truth revealed by Jesus Christ on Earth.
