NOTE: This project has been successfully piloted with a small number of children and youth, and is now seeking funds to be implemented.
HOPE FOR AFRICA
This project focuses its intentions on the African child and youth, future pillar of sustainable development. The child is the foundation of the society. As the Bible says “Train up a child in the way he/she should go: and when he/she is old, he/she will not depart from it” (Prov.22: 6).
A child needs much attention at the childhood stage for his/her better future of his/her family and the whole society. Developing a child involves teach him/her to know God, to love Him and to learn how to serve Him for the goodness of the community. The child also learns the culture of saving so that he/she grows-up with. The child learns the appropriate small technologiesfor his/her development and the sustainable development of the community.
With unity, love and cooperation, a child grows-up in an environment which helps him/her to solve his/her problems up to his/her advanced level of youth where a platform of learning their rights and duties, broaden their horizons and learn to express themselves is created.
Furthermore, HEM envisages to put in place specialized schools and training centers which shall help to implement this project. HEM will also sensitize other schools to include the above strategy of sustainable development in their programs.
