BENEFITING: Lion of Judah Ministries, Inc.
The Lion of Judah Academy is a private Christian primary and secondary school located in Bulima, Tanzania, East Africa. Its main goal is to provide an excellent but affordable education to these kids.
The committed and faithful Christian workers of Tanzania usually lack the resources necessary to send their children to high-quality schools. One of the most painful sacrifices these dedicated servants of God often must make is the sacrifice of their children's education. And AIDS orphans are among the poorest of the poor; their situation is desperate and growing worse.
I personally have gone twice on short-term missions trips to this school, and have seen firsthand what is being accomplished there. It consistently ranks among the highest schools in the region. The children care for one another, and help each other with their academics as well as growing each others' faith.
There has been an on-going struggle with water at the school. Lion of Judah (LoJ) borrows a water line from another neighboring school, but has grown so quickly that they can no longer share the same water system. They must install their own. All funds raised in this campaign will go directly to support the water project at Lion of Judah Academy in Bulima, Tanzania
