Learn About Give 5!


We work to make education accessible and affordable to all children in the communities where we work.


We install simple and accessible water purification systems for communities in need of clean water.


We locate appropriate farmland, working alongside local farmers and international agriculturalists, to help communities raise and sell produce and/or livestock.


We construct campuses with adequate space to prevent the spread of disease, ensure health and hygienic needs are met, and subsidize the cost of important medical resources.


We ensure the security of our project and school environments through training and access to necessary materials that promote safety for the youth.

Our story

Founded by Erin and Amanda Clark

…inspired by a volunteer trip to Kenya. Today, Linc has grown into an ambitious team made up of volunteers, companies, and ministries all committed to uplifting suffering youth throughout the world.

In 2012, Erin & Amanda volunteered with orphans in Kenya and were deeply touched by the happiness of the children despite their lack of basic needs. They created Love in Neglected Communities (Linc Worldwide) to provide impoverished youth with the ability to not only survive, but thrive.

Dedicated volunteers and ministries have linked up to provide neglected communities with access to five core resources that meet the needs of basic survival and self-fulfillment- clean water, sustainable food sources, health & sanitation, education, safety & security.

Awasi School

In Kenya there are 2.6 million orphaned or vulnerable children. Only 11% of them go to school. Many public schools are primitive rooms with dirt floors and no walls; books are rare and teachers don’t receive the necessary training they need. Government schools are supposed to be free-access to everyone, but when poor students can’t afford shoes or a uniform, schools close their doors to them. We are going to make education work for the children in Awasi, Kenya. Imagine a school where every child is welcome, regardless of finances. Imagine a school where children who never had the chance to step foot inside a classroom, will outperform their peers across the region. This school will provide education to orphaned and impoverished children in the area. Children will learn to become leaders who will do things in their community and country that we could never. Because many families in the area also do not have access to a water source, we will drill a well to supply our school with water and work closely with the community to provide aid to their water crisis. We broke ground in July 2016. Join us in finishing phase one (construction) through the Phase One Campaign.
