Life Skills Educators for Red Hill ($50 per month)
For a child growing up in the mountaintop squatter’s village of Red Hill, the world below is a murky maze of impossible dreams. From their makeshift homes and a community that is 50% HIV infected, the opportunities of the rich, healthy and educated seem completely beyond their reach.
Through a coalition of donors willing to donate $50 a month, JMI can fund a Life Skills Educator and other resources to make those dreams more concrete and attainable. That education begins with a commitment to remain abstinent and healthy so that they can overcome the odds against them. It also includes tutoring, encouragement to excel in school, the provision of mandatory school uniforms, training in life skills and problem solving, nourishment that might not be available at home, and consistent spiritual guidance, the very foundation for hope.
Students with a Cause ($10 per month)
Don’t have a lot of money every month but still want to be apart of this ministry? Become a student sponsor! You can give $10 each month towards any of our international sponsorship programs.For Moldova, your sponsorship would go towards transitional living facilities. In Moldova, the government institutional care of orphaned and abandoned children lasts until they reach the age of 16, or the U.S. equivalent of the freshman year of high school. They are then on their own with no family, no home, and no support. JMI’s transitional living program is an effort to meet the needs of these vulnerable young people. JMI provides a home in Moldova’s capital city of Chisinau for this purpose. Our program for boys and girls gives these kids an opportunity to continue their education, meet with a social worker to address their needs, receive the love and support of the JMI staff, plus participate in English lessons, life skills classes, computer classes, and Bible studies.Your donation of $10 a month will go directly to students and will provide necessary needs for them to have a happy and healthy life!
