In early March, Sam Barnett (Owner of Barlow's Premium Cigars & Pipes) in Lafayette, Colorado, saw our 2015 goals.. After reading the goals he contacted our founder, Jimmy Lakey, and said he wanted to be a part.
Within several days, Sam was hosting a fundraising event at his cigar shop. The event featured the involvement of other businesses/vendors in the area, a charity poker tournament, and lots of cigars. The event raised funds to build 4 houses and added 7 new child sponsors.
We are grateful for the generosity of Sam Barnett & Barlow's Cigars. We look forward to future events and leading an upcoming trip to Rwanda for many of the attendees at the event.
Our Child Sponsorship program is a simple way to make dynamic impact. Your sponsorship changes a child's life forever by providing access to education, scholastic materials, school uniform, basic life-amenities as needed, and health insurance.
All of this is accomplished with just $35 per month. Please take a moment right now to select a child and begin your sponsorship.
As we began helping orphans and vulnerable children through child sponsorship, we found a great problem that had to be overcome. Many of the children were homeless.
This presented many problems for the welfare of the child including difficulty in studying and taking care of their school supplies. Of course, good health & hygiene also were made more difficult.
To solve this problem, we began building houses for area widows who were also homeless and already doing their best to serve as "moms" for the homeless children.
It takes only $3.000 to build a 4-room home in this remote area of Rwanda. Please consider building a house with your family, your community group, or your church. The entire donation goes 100% toward home construction. Build a house and save lives.
