Help us fund a new Boys to Leaders Home in Balti, Moldova!
By God’s grace we were able to buy a house for girls in Balti, Moldova this past spring. Now we need a home for boys in that city as well. There are boys we know who need a safe place to live today. So the need is urgent. We estimate that a house for boys in Balti would cost approximately $160,000 US dollars.
The good news is that JMI has been offered the possibility of an $80,000 matching gift toward the purchase of this new home in Balti. We just need to raise the other half of the money by the end of this calendar year in order to secure the matching gift, so the clock is ticking. SO ANY GIFT YOU GIVE TODAY WILL BE MATCHED 100% BY OUR MATCHING DONOR (up to $80,000).
A Boys to Leaders Home in Balti will be a safe haven for young men in Northern Moldova who are orphaned or vulnerable and are seeking higher education and/or career training. The JMI Transitional Living program allows us to intervene, one boy and girl at a time, and prevent the high human trafficking, suicide and imprisonment rates that are so prevalent in Moldova. Our new home for boys will offer up to 15 young men a chance to:
- live in gospel community
- have a safe place with a loving house parent
- receive educational support
- have access to JMI staff
- receive medical and dental aid
- learn valuable life skills
A house plus furnishings in this region of Moldova will cost approximately $160,000 US dollars. The house will be in a beautiful, safe neighborhood in Balti and close to public transportation to get the boys safely to school and work places.
