KingdomIT Foundation is an organization meant to improve living conditions of people worldwide in combination with Evangelism. Its focus is being achieved by offering IT related solutions in cooperation with Christian entities. Globally, there are many places where power supply and internet infrastructure is at hand. There we train local teachers to apply more effective information technology. Also pastors are taught to use IT in their Evangelism in remote areas and urban slums. There are many locations where power supply and internet are absent, where citizens need to be able connect to God given resources, such as Biblical education, good health care provision and communication opportunities. Today KingdomIT Foundation also supports Christian entities in The Netherlands with information technology.
