Outsider mission workers with local church communities, such as with the agency Latin Link, can have a role in the promotion of church and community-based income generation projects as a poverty reduction strategy and as a way of healthy community involvement generally.

In this way, outside initiative promotes community development rather than imposing unsuitable solutions from the outside.
