We have had a wonderful year with many projects completed. We were blessed with funds for new construction projects including Churches, Schools, and water projects, as well as seed and tool projects and more. Our main thrust is always the 30,000 kids in our schools, learning their ABC's as well as hearing the gospel of Jesus Christ. Our Vision is a world where all children have an opportunity to become educated, healthy adults, get involved in their communities and share their love of Jesus Christ.
We depend on your time, talent and treasure. Without you, the kids would not be in school and our extra important projects would never have a chance, so thank you and God bless you. Our primary desire is that you become a sponsor. That is what we need to make is possible to help kids around the world. $30 a month will fill the need for one child!
Lunch Buddies needed, ( value with a punch) Lunches at school keep kids in school where they learn and hear the gospel, this is vital to help them succeed now and forever.
Top needs for extra projects include:
Water wells in Haiti
When hurricane Matthew struck in October, the pipes to the old water station were destroyed in the remote village of Hesse. This could have had severe consequences – but the people of Hesse did not have to despair. Because right before the hurricane struck, Star of Hope had finished the construction of two new wells in the village. Both constructions were made
possible by private donations from dedicated sponsors. Their water is now being used for drinking as cooking as well as personal hygiene by grateful local families.
Trinidad 25 years
At the heart of our pre-school education in Trinidad is Naomi Reid, 65, who welcomed the first children to her own home in 1987. The two preschools she runs today, Maloney and S:t Joseph, are beacons of light for struggling families in the area. -I have had 25 amazing years, Naomi says. -I feel gratitude towards all the sponsors who have made it possible for us
to help these children in need.
Cattle in Argentina
In Argentia, we have a cattle operation and the income from it helps provide long-term support for the Toba population and other projects that help the children. We have worked for over 40 years in Argentina. You are so important here, you can be involved in investing in needed farm animals to increase the; heard, profit, and the amount of assistance given. Every
earned dollar goes to help the Toba population. However, the farm is too small to generate any major profits but with your help, we can eventually create a self-suffi cient source of income to help the work. Right now we need to add more calves, is this interesting call CEO, Mark Presson
Build new children’s home to replace one that we have to vacate. $375,000 needed
This is the Carrefour children’s home for 100 kids. They have to vacate the property which they did not own. The government has made land available outside the city. Other donors have pledged or given half of the total cost of $750,000. The balance we need is $375,000. This will build 4 group homes, each holding 20 children and an apartment for a set of house parents. The project also includes a dining/study hall and office/guest house.
Child Evangelism & Discipleship Training. $97,500 needed
This project will make sure that each child has a Bible. Each teacher has training in child evangelism and child discipleship training. Since this is a startup project for us that we intend to replicate worldwide, I estimate the cost to be $25 per child. We have 3,900 children presently in our projects in Haiti.
The dream is to expand this all 30,000 children we work with worldwide. The cost for that will reach $600,000.
Blessings and thanks.
