our community empowerment program

Beacon of Hope

Our Community Empowerment Program helps us to understand the community’s hardship better. Our community empowerment program focuses on evangelism and empowering the local community to bring transformation. This program goes hand in hand with our other projects as avenues to share the gospel and holistically reach out and empower the whole person. We do weekly outreach and evangelism in the community and believe He will draw all men unto Himself as we lift His name on high. Through our empowerment programs, we do different training modules to empower families to come out of poverty, allowing them to be active members of their communities.

working with the community


An essential aspect of this program is to investigate each case we are considering supporting. We visit the family home and talk with community members and neighbors to ensure the information is true. This investigation enables us to assist people effectively and emphasizes the need for trust and honesty in the relationships we build. We also keep comprehensive files for each person that has been a part of this program that helps us to see the transformation and change that has taken place over the years.

In our community empowerment program, we have the following programs:

  • Discipleship classes and porridge nutrition for beneficiaries of Amagara Meza.
  • Formula/cow milk support for babies who can’t breastfeed (often due to the mother dying)
  • Medical support for major medical cases that need to be transferred to a hospital
  • Malnutrition support for families with children who are malnourished
  • Outreach and evangelism in the local community.
  • Counseling for rape, abuse, and conflict

Jesus asks us to stop for the one, see them, and be compelled by love to do something. So we want to walk this out here in our village. We love deeply and strive to be a beacon of hope to the hopeless and light in the darkness.
