I run a nonprofit faith-based organization that primarily helps widows and orphans across the globe, especially, in the developing nations. This was a divine assignment given to me several years ago, and I have a team of volunteers and partners who love the vision of assisting these vulnerable people by responding to their needs.
My team and I have continued to raise awareness of this noble project for over twenty years. We have contributed our own funds and some of our friends have also donated to this course.
With our collective monetary and material donations, we've been able to give interest-free micro-loans to about sixty widows in Haiti and Nigeria to start small-scale businesses that has enabled them to take care of themselves and their fatherless children. It is worthy of note that these widows are doing very well with the little they were given.
Recently, I received a divine insight to start a permanent empowerment program for the people we serve, hence, the idea of purchasing two acres of land in Nigeria to build an orphanage, a primary school (To educate the orphans), and fishing farm for the widows that we intent train in the business of fish farming. We anticipate to start a good academic foundations for the orphans in order for them to proceed to acquire quality education/skills that will help them to sustain themselves and be productive in their various communities. We also anticipate that the widows will work and be self-sufficient in tackling the challenges of daily living in their various families.
The approximate cost to start this project is $300,000.00 (Three hundred thousand dollars). This will include; registration of the property, fencing, clearing, building a 30 room orphanage and a primary school.
