  • Erdenet Lifeskills Values Education Branch Furnishings & Equipment

  • Community Training For Orphan Care - Social Worker

    (Zimbabwe)

    One in four children in Zimbabwe has lost one or both parents. Many are cared for by a relative, but continue to experience hunger, poor health and deprivation. Others are abandoned and grow up in orphanages or child-headed households because their extended family members are desperately poor and unable to provide for even their basic needs. Bopoma Villages comes alongside caregivers to strengthen and equip them to provide homes and care for orphaned children. For children who have become separated from their caregivers, Bopoma Villages provides temporary care while conducting extensive family tracing to reunite them with family members. If this is not possible, Bopoma Villages works to place children in a loving family in the community. Bopoma Villages works with community volunteers to help families care for more than 450 orphaned children. This project provides the funds for Bopoma Villages to hire a social worker to support this orphan care work. This social worker will be hired for a period of three years during which the individual will directly support the ongoing orphan care work and train community and church volunteers in a comprehensive range of support services to meet the ongoing needs of orphaned children and their caregivers.

  • Radio 4VEH STL Tower Replacement

    (Haiti)

    Every day, 4VEH - a Galcom partner - broadcasts Christ-centered programs on AM/FM radio, local television, digital, online and social media to hundreds of thousands of people across Haiti and beyond. Maintenance of five radio towers is urgently needed to continue to reach, teach and serve the people of Haiti with the Gospel. In particular, the receiving tower of the Studio-to-Transmission Link (STL) receives programs sent from the Morne Rouge studio site to the Petite Anse transmission site five miles away. Without it, there would be no broadcasts, and hundreds of thousands of people would be without their daily lifeline of help and hope. Deteriorated beyond repair, the tower is a safety hazard to staff and community and must be replaced urgently.  Replacing the STL Tower will help 4VEH maintain the infrastructure needed to send the Gospel out across Haiti, helping people in cities and isolated rural areas to find eternal hope in Jesus, grow as disciples and live out their faith right where they are. This project provides funds for the purchase, shipping and installation of the new 4VEH STL Tower.

  • Electric Heating Retrofit - 141 May St

    (Canada)

    Over the last several years, NorthWind Family Ministries has experienced significant growth in its ministry. Limited space at the 138 May St location has increasingly posed challenges in accommodating the growing needs for programming and counselling. The COVID-19 pandemic exacerbated these challenges as social distancing requirements rendered several smaller counselling offices unsuitable. NorthWind Family Ministries recently purchased a second building across the road from its original location, at 141 May St. With more and larger counselling offices and program spaces, this second facility enables NorthWind to more effectively meet the needs of its ministry and while meeting COVID-19 protocols and public health guidelines. This also frees up space at the original location for NorthWind's other growing programs, which had previously, on occasion, been moved to other locations due to space constraints. However, the "new" facility is heated by electric boilers causing expensive heating bills. In order to sustainably and affordably heat the space at 141 May St, NorthWind needs to retrofit the building with a natural gas heating system including bringing the natural gas line to the building. This project provides funds to retrofit and convert the heating system for the NorthWind Family Ministries building at 141 May St from an electric heating system to a natural gas heating system.

  • Surgical Centre Completion Costs

    (Uganda)

    For years, One4Another has been limited by lack of space in its current clinic location in Jinja, Uganda. In January 2020, One4Another purchased a new property in Jinja to become the site of a larger and enhanced surgical centre to support One4Another's ongoing (and expanded) work in providing surgical care for the children of rural Uganda. This new property and new facilities will significantly expand One4Another's space (10x), capacity and effectiveness including include 2 operating rooms, administrative offices, therapy and rehabilitative space and additional ward space (42 beds) which will allow One4Another to care for patients who need to stay for longer periods. The new surgical centre will be a place where  patients can find rest for their bodies, their minds, and their souls. It will be a place where children and their parents feel loved and supported so that they can regain their strength and return home with a new chance at a new life. In order to complete the surgical centre and ensure its long-term sustainability, One4Another has identified various furnishings, equipment and other items to be purchased and installed/implemented. These items will ensure the full functionality, security, long-term sustainability and full effectiveness of the new surgical centre.

  • Operations Manual Development

    (Canada)

    The Organized Kaos Apprenticing in Life and Trade model has proven very successful in the last several years with significantly increasing demand for increased quantity and variety in OK programs in the Paris/Brantford, Ontario area. Organized Kaos believes that this hands-on mentorship approach can not only be further expanded in its current location but also replicated in other locations across Canada to further increase the impact to young people's lives. In order to effectively support others in replicating the Organized Kaos model, Organized Kaos will develop an Operations Manual that outlines how to effectively start, implement, manage and grow an OK-model organization in their own location. In this way, Organized Kaos will extend its reach to inspire hope and purpose to youth throughout Canada while continuing to engage skilled trades persons from the local church in a safe mentorship environment. This project provides the funds to develop an Organized Kaos Operations Manual including drafting, editing, graphic design and layout, publishing and releasing the document.
