Many young people in countries that are our closest neighbors receive little or no education at all.
Many remote villages in these communities either do not have a school or do not have anyone to teach the children.
These communities want a better life for their children but feel trapped and helpless â€“ they have very little in the way of a cash economy â€“ they grow their own food, they still hunt and fish, they sell any cash crops to those who have paid jobs, usually in towns.
What money they do have comes spread out throughout the year. Barely enough to sustain them personally let alone start a school with resources needing to be bought.
They want their kids to have the opportunities that other kids get in the towns and cities, but are forced to resign themselves to their situation, with little hope of any real change in the future.
We are determined to help by bringing biblical worldview education to these villages but the need is big and the funding is limited.
â€œBut you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem and in all Judea, and Samaria, and as far as the remotest part of the earth.â€ Acts 1:8 New American Standard Bible
