You may be asking, “why does the world need another charitable organization seemingly doing the same things?” That is a great question and one that needs to be addressed on a global scale. There are many good-hearted people making small impacts in the lives of those they serve. But, what if?
What if your giving could have a larger impact? What if your donation could help entire villages become self-sufficient, thereby changing the lives of the families and children who call them home?
Nehemiah Fund has a new approach to a century’s old problem. The solution to making meaningful improvements in the lives of the desperately poor is increased cooperation, communication and synergy among individuals, non-profit organizations and non-government organizations doing good work.
According to the latest research, 805 million people do not have enough to eat, and a lack of food results in a child’s death every 10.2 seconds from hunger. Before you are done reading this, at least three children will have died due to a problem completely within our grasp to solve. It is a problem that must be addressed now and one that cannot come too quickly for those suffering around the world. Through program management, collaboration and logistical support with new and existing organizations, Nehemiah Fund will provide:
- Infant and Young Child Feeding Projects where people receive the life-saving food they need.
- Animals, Agriculture & Economic Programs that provide dairy animals, chickens and other livestock for subsistence farming. Additionally, working to develop agricultural programs designed to teach farming to communities providing food and potential revenue from crop sales.
- Home Grown School Feeding Programs that increase small-scale farmers’ production practices and give them more access to markets.
- Water, Sanitation & Hygiene (WASH) Projects to establish freshwater wells and boreholes in support of agricultural initiatives and prevent waterborne disease. Reducing the spread of waterborne disease and prevent diarrhea, one of the leading causes of death among children.
- Construction Projects focused on providing shelter for homeless families, schools for education opportunities to help break the cycle of poverty and facilities for physical and spiritual healing.
