BENEFITING: BREAD FOR LIFE MINISTRIES
EVENT DATE: Jul 15, 2016
Greetings! It’s hard to believe that Bread for Life Ministries was born five years ago in our tiny two-bedroom home. The vision was simple: bake yummy bread, raise awareness at local churches, and use all the donations from our bread sales to meet the urgent needs of the most vulnerable children in Uganda.
Our goal this summer is to build a bakery at African Hearts School! African Hearts School is an absolute MIRACLE! Started by a Ugandan 'slum-boy,' the school now rescues children out of the slums of Kampala and gives them a top-rated education. They need our help! The Founder & Director has asked us to build a bakery on they campus that will do three things:
- Allow girls to provide income for their families by teaching them a trade
- Give starving children desperately needed nutrition (the students eat only one full meal a day)
- Encourage an economic infrastructure, as all our ingredients will come from organic crops grown on land owned by African Hearts
So not only will we be building a bakery, but also growing our own ingredients like beans, corn, grains, and nuts to create a protein-rich flour base. We will also incorporate fruits and veggies like pumpkin, zucchini, and bananas. We are excited-beyond-belief to partner with our brothers and sisters in Uganda in this way!
In order to bring this dream to reality, we really need your help. Our goal is to raise $20,000 by the end of June in order to get this project off the ground and fully funded for the first year.
HERE'S WHAT YOUR DONATIONS WILL PROVIDE...
- A large brick oven for baking
- Farming equipment
- A staff of bakers
- An industrial milling machine for our grains
- Ongoing firewood
- All the additional ingredients
- Mixing bowls, spoons, storage bins, oven supplies…you name it, we will need it!
If you would please consider partnering with us in this endeavor, we would be eternally grateful. We know God has always had His hand on this ministry and we believe He has wonderful plans for us all in this new season. We are so excited!
As always, 100% of your donation is tax deductible and 100% of your donation will be used for this project.
