  • Need

    Need

    Faith2Share is working with a group of mission leaders in Myanmar who lack resources to sustain their mission work across the country.

    Solution

    By setting up small income generation projects - two, pig farming and water purification (for sale) are already proposed - we will generate the funds they need.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    To send start-up grants to mission leasers in Myanmar by September 2015

    Activities

    » Raise £1,800 per project to send to Myanmar ahead of the faith2Share consultation there in September 2015
    » Monitor and assess start-up projects and how these lead to mission sustainability.

    Mission leaders will be adequately resourced and no longer be looking for external (out of country) funding.


  • Impact

    Impact

    These projects will act as models of best practice for other church and mission leaders in Myanmar who will also be inspired to work towards self-sustainability.

    Risk

    The projects could fail as a result of poor management of the pig farming or water purification or because of local community corruption.

    Reporting

    Our website will carry reports of this work as it develops.
