Supporting Workers Fighting Poverty in Nepal
About this Mission Project
The rural development workers that serve in the mountains of Nepal face many hardships. Often there is not enough food in these remote locations, and few churches are able to support the workers and their families.
The Nepal Baptist Church Council (NBCC) has proposed a project to provide training and resources that will help lift these faithful workers and their communities out of poverty and make them self-sufficient. They will learn income generating skills in horticulture, animal husbandry, fish farming and savings and credit programs.
- $100 will provide a piglet, a kid goat, plant seed or 80 breeding chickens.
- $250 will provide an animal shed, lease land for crops or establish a poultry farm.
- $500 will provide a buffalo, a cow, 200 chickens, or a greenhouse for crop seedlings.
Mission Project Specifics
This project seeks to raise $19,800 to provide training and resources for 10 rural development workers in Nepal. The purpose is to give them and their churches income-generating skills so they can become self-supporting.
The project will be managed by the Reverend Vijay Thapa, an officer of the NBCC. It is anticipated that, as a result of this project, rural churches will help combat the poverty in their communities and provide a more stable economic future.
