Worldcast Ministries / Harold Eberle - The ministry of Harold Eberle has a heart to serve those enslaved through bonded labor in the brickyards of Pakistan, where women and children make up the majority of the labor. 85% of children working in brick kilns have never attended school. Funds are needed to bring education to the children by providing a school with the necessary staff to help it run. Giving education affords them an opportunity to one day gain employment outside the brickyards.
The Water Project - The water crisis is real, and affecting women, children, families and farmers. Women and girls in sub-Saharan Africa are spending hours a day fetching dirty water which leads to illness and disease, robbing entire communities of their futures. As we support The Water Project, we help bring clean water through new wells, rehabbed wells, sand dams and catchment systems to schools, medical clinics and villages by partnering with local national leaders.
