Holiday Challenge Week 1: Kindergarten Grads

It's week 1 of our Holiday Challenge, and we're kicking it off with some very special individuals.

This year, we have 4 students graduating from our kindergarten and gearing up for Grade 1. We would love to provide each of them with a school uniform and shoes, which will cost $25 each.

Will you join us in showing love and support for these students? Let us know if you will sponsor one of them financially or through prayer.

Holiday Challenge

As the Christmas season draws near, we are reminded of how blessed we are: we have faithful financial donors, people following us online and praying for our projects, and several extremely dedicated individuals serving on the front lines.

But this holiday season, we want to challenge you to take the next step. If you have ever considered supporting Sinanzi, this is the perfect time of year to give generously. Each week leading up to Christmas, we will reveal a new project or individual that you can support.

Here are a few ways that you can help:

  • Give Online: You can give a one-time or recurring donation through GoFundMe.
  • Team Up: Every dollar counts, and it can add up quickly! Choose one of our weekly initiatives, and then recruit your family, friends, church, or co-workers to reach that goal. 
  • Pray: Pray for each of the individuals and projects that we share over the next month. Challenge yourself to pray daily.
  • Share: One of the biggest impacts you can have is spreading the word. Please share our posts on Facebook, and tell your friends about Sinanzi. The dramatically increases our reach online and around the world, resulting in more support and more awareness.

Thank you for your support! Stay tuned for our first weekly giving opportunity.

Dealing With Drought

Just google "Namibia" and "drought," and you'll find countless news articles describing how desperate the situation is right now. While some of our crops are scorched, we believe there is still an opportunity to save the rest of the garden.

We've begun a big project: expanding our existing cistern. This well collects what rainwater we do get, and retains it for periods of drought. We'll need big equipment and big support!

If you are able to help us with this project, please visit GoFundMe to help us raise $200. Your generosity will help us recover the remaining crops and continue to provide healthy food for our students and community!
