About We are in the business of dreams

We’re the new generation of dreamers, the do-ers not the sleepers, the standers not the sitters, the feet to the pavement, the movers and shakers, the caregivers, the prayer warriors, the hand raisers, the faithful in the little & faithful in the much, the dreamers, the reality changers.


We want to help your dreams come true. To give you opportunities and steps to start using those gifts inside of you for God and to help people. To take action. To start living the dream.

It’s time for orphans and widows and needy people around the world to start dreaming again. You can help make that happen. This is where the mission field meets your field of study. Together we can reach more. If we all live for God and pool our gifts – we will see our world change for the better and see those dreams of a better tomorrow become a reality.

CoLaborers International assists international indigenous-led community organizations through volunteerism, aide, program development and support.

Founded in 2007 by Melissa Davis-Stuebing, CoLaborers International serves to empower indigenous-led missions while also giving people ways they can serve in their field of study/ expertise both locally and abroad. We are a 501c3 U.S. charity.
