International Partner in Missions (IPM) has been creating partnerships that build justice, peace and hope around the world since 1974. We maintain longstanding relationships with Project Partners in over twenty countries. These community-based Project Partners impact more than 60,000 children, women, and youth each year. In addition to funding, IPM provides technical support, micro-lending opportunities, regional conferences, and training.

IPM currently offers Immersion Experiences to Brazil, Columbia, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, India, Kenya, Nepal, Nicaragua, and Tanzania. These short-term travel opportunities are designed to build cross-cultural relationships and solidarity with our Project Partners. Participants gain a greater understanding of the global realities of poverty.  By witnessing the inspiring work of our Project Partners, participants are challenged with a new vision of society grounded in justice and love.

Headquartered in Cleveland Heights since 2001, we are excited to work with Global Cleveland and others in creating a welcoming global culture in Cleveland. Students from Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland Municipal School District, Saint Ignatius High School, and many more area institutions have seen the world through our Immersion Experience Program. We also host International visitors, and design programs to connect these visitors to the community.

We invite you to learn more about IPM’s work around the world on Friday, May 19, 2017 at our Annual Awards Luncheon. The program will feature Fatima Pacas, Regional Director of Latin America and the Caribbean. She will discuss the realities of forced migration, highlighting the experience of our Project Partners in Latin America. For more information, contact Lisa-Jean Sylvia at [email protected].
