GALLERY  -  PROJECTS

Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute.  Speak up and judge fairly, defend the rights of the poor and needy. . . . .. . . . .  . . . . .Proverbs 31:8-9

    We have many needs.  Each project has it's own cost and each project is just as important as the next one.  

    Clean water prevents Typhoid and disentery; having the fields plowed and planted provides the food needed to live on; giving a goat or chickens to a household allows the family to be more self sufficient.  Teaching how to cook with the sun in a card board box saves on the cost of cooking fuels and saves the forest land and air quality.  Teaching tradesmen how to build solar cookers out of wood and sheet metal provides an income; having computers allows the ministry to set up an internet cafe to earn funds to service the people as well as teach our orphans how to use them.  Sewing machines allow older orphans or widows to learn a trade and have an income.

 

The list is unending and it is your love, prayers, and donations (any amount) that with God's blessings, will make the difference.
