Project for progress 1st missionary team community outreach (06-17 - 06-26, 2011)

  1. 1. We are Projects for Progress, a community development non-profit that is currently working in Benin, West Africa. Started in 2008 by Jace and Sarah Rabe, PfP believes in sustainable projects that are filtered through three organizational pillars, clean water, education, and small business development. Through these pillars, we believe that lasting change will be evident through the villages we partner with in Benin.  We are partnering with three villages in the north of Benin, Tourou, Sanson, and Badekparou. PfP strives to build relationships and partnerships with these villages.  Our plan is not to visit a village one or two times, assist with one problem and move on, but we "adopt" the village and begin to cultivate a covenant relationship with the leaders and local villagers. We commit to long term involvement and require the same of the village.  They must have ownership in the changes, they must have a voice in the change they want for their village and community.  This type of relationship is accomplished through us listening, evaluating, keeping our word, but most importantly showing them Christ's love.<br />Mission Statement: To provide strategic solutions to third world problems that create lasting change in the lives of people by empowering communities and individuals with sustainable developmental projects. Our purpose is to meet the physical and emotional needs of those communities and individuals, thereby creating a relationship where their spiritual needs can be fulfilled.<br />
