Light of the Village
Light of the Village is a Christian Ministry located inside one of the most impoverished and violent neighborhoods in the southeastern USA.
Adult Literacy Program – Detroit, MI
Reading Works is an adult literacy program located in Metropolitan Detroit, dedicated to increasing adult literacy and promoting the idea that reading works, both in the family and workplace.
Many adults in metropolitan Detroit are able to read some words but not enough for most of life’s tasks, such as following a training manual, filling out an application or reading a story to their child. Reading Works believes it is time to do something about this and focuses on rebuilding adult literacy. Reading Works partners with and provides resources to existing adult literacy agencies in the community to help with this effort. This community effort is on behalf of the adults in the community who are least literate and need the help. Reading Works believe that if basic literacy skills are repaired, adults will advance in literacy levels and become more prepared to join the workforce.
“Stringing Lives Together One by One” – Uganda
Four Corners Ministries provides holistic care for orphans in Uganda and helps create jobs through entrepreneurial development for impoverished women in Africa.
There are more than 60 million orphaned and vulnerable children (HIV/AIDS, conflict,disability, street children) in Africa, with about three million of these children living in Uganda. Four Corners Ministries’ project, Abaana’s Hope (Abaana is an African word which means children), is a comprehensive children’s village that will provide holistic care for orphans. The ultimate goal of Abaana’s Hope is to help raise future leaders, to lift them up and fill them with love and hope so that they might do the same for their neighbors.
Four Corners Ministries belives that teaching entrepreurial development is a more sustainable approach to eradicating poverty. Since 2011, FCM has been partnering with impoverished women in Uganda and helping the women to become entrepreneurs. The women turn recycled paper into handcrafted beads, make jewelry from the beads, and then FCM brings the jewelry back to the United States to sell at home parties. In turn, the proceeds from the jewelry become food, medicine, income, and hope for these families in Uganda.
This is just one small way that Four Corners Ministries is ministering to these women.
