Support-Link projects

Can your church/group help?
Mission International receives requests from churches and ministries in the developing world on a regular, almost daily basis, some known to us and some we would like to link up with in the future. These requests vary from support to build a church or a school, begin a water project or support with evangelism teams. Unfortunately we do not currently have the resources in terms of finance or personnel to help in every situation, however it may be that your church or group would like to link up with a needy community in the developing world in order to help them in a short, medium or long-term basis.
'Hands On' approach:
Churches and community groups, including schools and colleges are able to raise considerable support for charitable purposes however they may not then be able to carry this through to a satisfactory conclusion. You may feel that you would like to be much more 'hands on' with your fundraising and giving, wishing to see the results of what you have achieved in terms of bricks and mortar or lives changed. If this is the case Mission International can link you up to a specific project, one which is in great need but to date has not managed to find an appropriate sponsor to help them. Your church or group would then take on the responsibility of raising the funds, providing some personnel and getting closely involved in the project. This kind of scheme can provide useful links in terms of experience, ministry and global citizenship for many UK groups.
