BENEFITING: THE AMEN FOUNDATION

Lance Hooper

THE STORY:

Saint Barbe Catholic Church is located in the remote community of Manono in northern Katanga province, DRC. The church serves as a social hub for the community and provides church services and a variety of social programs for the residents of Manono and nearby rural villages. Saint Barbe is also home to a primary and secondary school with over 200 students.

The church has limited means and all income from school fees, rental of rooms in the mission to travellers, and food sold from the kitchen is used to cover operating expenses.

This fundraiser is for some small capital projects including:

1. Solar panels and batteries ($5000). There is a small generator that supplies power for a few hours a day but this is turned off when there are no guests staying at the mission guest house.

2. Motor bike ($1500). The church provides outreach to surrounding villages and could greatly benefit from having its own motor bike.

3. Sports equipment and supplies for youth program ($1000). There are many young boys and girls who would benefit from sports equipment (soccer balls and nets, skipping ropes, erc.), board games, and art supplies.

4. Scholarship fund ($2500). There are orphans and many families who cannot afford to pay the school fees. This fund would be used to pay for school fees and school supplies for disadvantaged kids.
