Empowerment Through Education


$

As we celebrate our 150th anniversary as a missionary institute, we invite you to join us in mission. In 2017 we started a 150 Year Anniversary Fund, which will be used to help the poorest and most vulnerable among us.

Our first project was to provide clean water to refugees living in Uganda. We did this through a partnership with Water With Blessings. With your help we provided more than 500 water filters to the people who need them most. We were also able to outfit some of our missionaries with filters. But our work continues.

Our goal in 2018-19 is to help educate children around the world.

Did you know that in Guatemala only 35% of young people attend middle school or high school? And in Malawi the average family only makes 50 cents per day, making the $70 tuition for high school impossible to afford. In Uganda only 20 percent of students make it to high school.

These statistics are just a mere drop in the bucket. In countries around the world, young people are denied an education everyday due to poverty, conflict, and more. It's even worse for girls. If a family can afford to educate only one child, it will almost always be the boy. The reasons for this vary, and it's always unjust.

Everywhere our missionaries serve they work people of all ages, and in all walks of life. Regardless of where they are - from Sudan to Ecuador - there is a need to help students get to school.

Will you please help us in offering scholarships to needy students? Or, for just $25 you can purchase school supplies for a little girl and her brother. With just $10 we can purchase a textbook for a student in Guatemala or Benin.

Whatever amount, we are grateful for your generosity and your desire to help every child get the education they deserve. Because when you educate a child, you educate a whole village, county, nation! Education offers children a ladder out of poverty and a path to a promising future.

Thank you for joining us on this missionary journey with your generosity.
