Our Local Groups

The backbone of our work.

What are local groups?
Local groups are community-level groups that act in partnership with and on behalf of World Servants Netherlands. They are the backbone of our work.

How does it work?
Local groups are formed by people who've become passionate about World Servants' work. Local groups operate under the flag of World Servants, but do not constitute separate organizations.

Local groups recruit new participants in their own church or catchment area and set-up their own fundraising campaigns. The World Servants Netherlands office in Wolvega provides support services and resources.

Many local groups contribute to financing "the challenge" for their project. This is the amount that the office  otherwise would have to raise for finishing the construction projects.
