BENEFITING: PARKVIEW CHRISTIAN CHURCH
EVENT DATE: Feb 14, 2013
"If you give a man a fish you feed him for a day. If you teach a man to fish you feed him for a lifetime."
My church announced a February 2013 mission trip to Kenya in partnership with Missions of Hope International, MOHI (http://cmfi.org/hopepartnership). MOHI focuses on the Muthare slum outside of Nairobi, Kenya. This area is less than a square mile in size, but is home to more than one million people.
I will be part of a group of 100 volunteers who will be contributing in a number of different areas. The purpose of my trip is to transfer my skills and experience to local entrepreneurs so that they may start up, sustain and grow their own businesses. Collectively, our goal is transform this community. We are all jumping in and making a huge “cannonball” impact.
All donations are tax deductible*. Donations may be made the following ways:
1) Directly through my church, where 100% is tax deductible and goes towards my direct trip expense. Note: Parkview is not a benefactor of donations - all donations will be spent on the mission trip to offset costs for myself and potentially other volunteers.
