This project provides funds to develop 7 self-reliant villages by equipping and teaching families to improve their health, prevent disease, increase food security, enrich nutrition and enhance agricultural skills. Through clean water (BioSand filters), handwashing (Tippy Taps), pot racks, waste/garbage disposal, fly traps, rocket stoves and biointensive gardens, this project will strengthen and equip people living in rural Zimbabwe to create better lives for themselves, their families and orphaned children in their communities.
Audio Scriptures for West Africa - West Africa
This project multiplies the evangelism and discipleship efforts of local ministries in areas of high risk in West Africa through the manufacture, supply and distribution of solar-powered audio Bibles. Through discrete 24-hour access to the Bible and listening groups these devices are essential for the growth and discipleship of the local church, many of whom are persecuted for their Christian faith and otherwise have no other Bible teacher available to them.
This project provides for the translation, audio recording and distribution of Bible story audio-visual messages and other supplemental materials for 2 languages in Eastern Africa currently without Scripture in their mother tongue or with limited access to a local church. To equip East African Church leaders in effectively communicating the Gospel of Christ to unreached peoples and oral language groups in Kenya and Tanzania, these recordings will be distributed on SD cards and CDs as well as uploaded to the 5fish app for free download for use with Bible pictures books.
This grant funds a pilot program that provides a restorative justice curriculum in 10 Canadian federal correctional facilities. The program supports a ministry of reconciliation and restoration to inmates, ex-offenders, their families and victims through structured exercises that bring offenders and surrogate victims together. By emphasizing the responsibility of offenders to repair the harm caused by their crime, this program helps prisoners examine the concept of crime, their actions, factors contributing to their actions, empathy for the victim, forgiveness and making amends.
This project provides for the French translation of all remaining required reading books for the Certificate of Biblical Counseling program developed in partnership with CCEF and SEMBEQ. These 20 books are necessary for the full development and implementation of the Certificate program in Quebec as well as French-speaking Europe, the Caribbean and Africa. The resources are also important tools to disciple and build up the French-speaking Church as well as for use by pastors in their ministry.
This project provides the funds to support various facets of the third cohort of the Abundant Leadership Institute including the leadership summit, site visits to program participants, the adjunct faculty and mentorship program that supports in-class learning and the purchase of hardware and access fees for an online training and library platform. Through this practical, Christ-centered leadership program, 25 visionary educational leaders will be equipped to act as catalysts to transform education for hundreds of thousands of African children, foster vibrant communities that address poverty in all its forms and empower a new generation of leaders in Central and Eastern Africa.
This project is part of a recurring grant originally approved in 2017.
