About Us

Starve poverty started out of a burden that Ron Fraser had after experiencing the extreme poverty of Mexico. After a couple of trips Ron realized the language barrier was too great for him. Ron had then been invited to Exuma, Bahamas to teach courses in marriage and individual counseling.

He soon realized the economical struggle and the poverty on the island was far greater than just counseling. Ron soon changed his focus to “breaking the chains of poverty”. Ron has built a board around him who supports and helps execute the vision of the organization.


Pray for God to continuously provide opportunities for us to share not only his word, but His principals in loving the people locally and in Exuma.

Starve Poverty International “State-Side”

Starve Poverty International is proud to announce a new development: we are coming State-side! We are reaching out to municipalities, civic organizations, schools, and churches to help identify underprivileged individuals and families that need home repairs or other practical necessities that are not being met by their current resources. Starve Poverty International is identifying these hardship situations and gathering a group of volunteers to minister to those needs.
We need volunteers to help meet construction needs and necessities. Along with the need for volunteers, we are also asking for donors and sponsors to offset financial burden. Please consider what part you may want to play in “Making A Difference”.

Designated Donation Chart

Starve Poverty International is a 501c3

When Starve Poverty receives a designated donation for a specific project we divide that donation between three categories: The project itself, administrative and fundraising.
