"Building Christian Leaders"


About Us

The Make a Positive Difference Foundation was established in 2007 after a mission trip to Kosovo by Roger Anderson, M.A.P.D. President. In his visits to fledgling Christian churches in Kosovo, Roger met many young Christian students who were searching for effective ways to become leaders in spreading their Christian faith in their communities and country. Believing that higher education was a key component in developing Christian leaders, Roger assembled a team of individuals who shared his belief and established the Make a Positive Difference Foundation.

The mission of the Make a Positive Difference Foundation is to enhance the lives of young International Christian students and the children of missionary families by providing financial support and scholarships for higher education. By providing educational opportunities that these students might not otherwise have, we feel that these students will become strong, upright Christian leaders and will make a positive difference in their homes, communities, and countries in the future.
