As we plant seeds in programs that will bear fruit around the world, we look forward to sharing the reports of how the recipients put them to use.
All of our grant recipients agree to inform us about the outcome of their ministry projects once all the activities have been completed.
From time to time we'll post some of their feedback here so you can share our joy in seeing the goodness of God come alive in the lives of others!
Atlanta Dream Center
In 2012 we gave a micro grant to the Atlanta Dream Center to support their community outreach events such as Compassion Night, Princess Night and Metro Kidz.
He took also of the seed of the land, and planted it in a fruitful field.
Our micro grant supported a church planting effort in Iloilo City, Philippines.
Examples of the micro grants we've awarded so far include:
A homeless feeding ministry project in Chester, PA.
An orientation visit to the Los Angeles Dream Center to evaluate programs and tools to be used in 24/7 prayer ministry, including care for the homeless and urban outreach, in Philadelphia, PA.
Seed funding to develop a kids' praise music CD to be used as a fund raising tool for community youth rallies in Bucks County, PA.
Seed support for prison ministry in Philadelphia, PA.
Support for a counseling program for ministers and leaders in Acworth, GA.
Support for a counseling, healing and deliverance program in Lilburn, GA.
Support for a college community service missions trip to Nepal.
Supported a youth formal event at the Faith Open Door Community Center in Clayton County, GA.
We are currently partnering with other individuals to serve as a healing community,a group expressing compassion and providing assistance to persons returning from prison within the state of Georgia.
Wholeness, Dancing and Horses
In 2011 we sponsored a one-day horse camp for approximately ten students and teachers from an Atlanta dance program for teens overcoming challenging circumstances. They learned to groom, saddle,walk and ride horses at the Angus Valley Stables in Bethlehem, GA. Horses are very calming and are great teachers of focus and attention to detail.
The I-Promise Project
We partnered with Bristol Myers Squibb and one of its employee affinity groups to raise funds, purchase 90 breast cancer training models and send trainers to train community workers in South Africa. This training program created a sustainable model for developing training resources throughout communities. The trainers who received training then trained a second tier of local women on how to teach women in their communities how to self-examine and detect breast cancer. This unique collaboration with The Lydia Tree included a corporate grant as well as collaboration with the company's foundation to collect donations and fund the costs of the program.
