There are a number of organizations with ministries around the world that Access believes in and partners with. Join us in supporting these organizations and their mission to change the world.
In 2015, Vox Culture is starting a new drive for supporters called "Partners 4 Giving." Over the years Vox Culture has grown and has become a recognized platform where diverse individuals and organizations can form partnerships to impact the city of Houston. Their current partnership with HISD and Lee HS is a good example, and they have new community partners that will be joining in a mentoring project. Vox is looking for donors who can give on a monthly basis to help support leadership, projects, and partnerships. Click the Donate button for details.
Plant With Purpose
Access partners with Plant With Purpose in their good work towards sustainable growth and development in Tanzania. We currently help sustain their efforts in the small village Ashira.
Plant With Purpose’s Tanzania program has seen unprecedented growth, going from 80 to more than 1,200 participating farmers in four short years. Traditionally, when families need farmland and fuel wood for cooking or heating, they have resorted to cutting down trees in Tanzania’s original forests. Plant With Purpose works with 22 communities in the regions surrounding Mount Kilimanjaro to create alternatives to deforestation, and share the tools needed to replenish the land and improve lives. Over 850 families have created family vegetable gardens and collectively planted over 357,428 trees in farming and reforestation efforts.

Living Water International is an organization based in Houston, TX whose mission is to "demonstrate the love of God by helping communities acquire desperately needed clean water, and to experience 'living water'—the gospel of Jesus Christ—which alone satisfies the deepest thirst."
In May 2011, Access sent a team of people to Nicaragua for one week to partner with Living Water in their work to provide clean water to communities across the world. During that week, our team from Access successfully drilled a water well for a school that previously had little access to clean running water. It was an incredible week of serving the community, playing with the children, and building relationships with the amazing people there.

Access has a longstanding partnership with Living Water, so if you're interested in joining us for a similar trip in the future, let us know!
Covenant Kids Congo
In 2013 we joined a unique partnership between World Vision and the Evangelical Covenant Church to help families and children in the Democratic Republic of Congo. It is an unprecedented partnership to meet an unprecedented need. A number of us at Access are sponsoring children in the DRC as part of a long term project to see our brothers and sisters on the other side of the planet gain access to clean water, education, health, and much more.
