Holiday Challenge Week 4: Expanded Garden

Our staff has been busy preparing more of our land for additional garden space, and now we're ready to plant! We'd love to grow carrots, spinach, squash, peppers, watermelon, and eggplant - all of which will provide a healthy diet to the children and vulnerable families in our village.

Will you help us reach our $40 goal to purchase seeds and supplies? Visit GoFundMe to support this vital project!

Holiday Challenge Update: Thank You!

Thank you to everyone who has supported us this month! We've had several extremely generous donations during our Holiday Challenge, and we're grateful.

Thanks to you, all 4 of our kindergarten graduates will be receiving new uniforms and brand new shoes as they get ready to enter 1st grade in January. Thanks to you, we have extra funds to put toward a new sprinkler system in a garden that is determined to overcome drought. Thanks to you, we will be able to purchase new supplies for Kanchi's classroom.

Lives are being changed as the people of our community experience God's love through the gifts of food and education. Lives are also being changed across the world as people put their finances - and their faith - into this project. Thank you for your support!

Holiday Challenge Week 3: School Supplies

While some of you are gearing up for Christmas break, our students in Namibia are getting ready for a new school year. We want to kick off 2017 with a classroom that is set up for success. We already have a talented teacher (Kanchi); now we want to provide the class with new school supplies.

If you value education and want to see these kids blossom, consider joining us in week 3 of our giving challenge. Every gift will go a long way in supplying the basic necessities Kanchi's students need.

How can you help?
  • Visit GoFundMe to donate $5, $10, or more!
  • Organize a collection. Here are some items that provide the most value:
    • Coloring Books

    • Digital Materials
  • Support us through prayer. 
  • Share this post on Facebook to let your friends know how they can help.

Holiday Challenge Week 2: Garden Sprinklers

A few weeks ago, we shared with you how severe the drought has been - and the measures we're taking to prevent further damage. We expanded our cistern well in order to store more water, but now we need to improve how we deliver that water to our crops.

For about $300 per section of vegetables, we can upgrade and expand our sprinkler system so that the extreme heat does not scorch the plants. If hunger and nutrition are important to you, please consider supporting this vital ministry. Preserving the garden will ensure that the kids in our kindergarten and hungry families in our village will have a healthy food source year round. 

Remember, we aren't asking for any one person to support this entire effort - but every dollar helps. If each of our supporters chipped in $5 or $10, we'd have enough to fund the entire garden!

Visit GoFundMe to donate online. Thank you for your support!
