Family-Self-Support

Through this program, thousands of families have been able to start or expand small businesses that provide them with a regular income. This is a dream come true for families in Romania, Moldova, Ukraine, Liberia, Nicaragua, or the Middle East where jobs are scarce and opportunities limited. Recipients have used their Family-Self-Support funds to build greenhouses, purchase livestock or tractors, expand construction businesses, start taxi services, and much more. This program also supports agricultural development projects in Haiti, such as soil erosion control and water conservation.

Sponsorship

YES, I intend to sponsor a family in Liberia, Romania, Ukraine, or other country to help them become self-supporting. My one-time gift will help provide a resource such as land, machinery, sewing machine, cow, horse and wagon, tools, greenhouse, or fishing nets.

For a sponsorship of $1,000 or more, you will receive brief information about the family you sponsored, along with a description of the aid they received.

NOTE: This sponsorship is covered with a one-time donation instead of with monthly donations.
