Programs and Initiatives
More than 700 million people worldwide are living on less than $1.90 a day, and it can be nearly impossible to get ahead when you’re that far behind. That’s why our Micro-Finance Initiative provides funding to entrepreneurs—offering financial backing to those who want to break the cycle of poverty.
As one aspect of our School of Leadership & Development, our child-sponsorship program offers an opportunity to connect with someone from another culture in a unique and rare way.
We strive to build equity in the communities where we work. Through our Water Project Initiative, our goal is to sponsor a whole community through programs that may include projects in the area of health, education, agriculture, and vocational training.
The Ag Enterprise Business Program
As part of our Micro-Finance Initiative, fifty farmers from Burkina Faso were selected to go through capacity-building training. Farmers from the U.S. collaborated with these African farmers in order to encourage and train them to produce more crops in order to feed their own people—locally and nationally.
Pastors and Leaders Training
Under our School of Leadership & Development, we are working in strategic partnership with other organizations, such Teach Every Nation, to train and equip local indigenous pastors and leaders across Burkina Faso as they carry out the Good News of Jesus Christ to every tribe and people group in their communities and nation.
Eye Care Project
In an impoverished country like Burkina Faso, healthcare is difficult enough, but eye care is almost impossible to find. This country of 18.4 million people only has 13 ophthalmologists! One of our Community Development Project Initiatives is to provide medicine, glasses, and a mobile clinic to provide better care and outcomes.
