Many know of the decades of service of Kwesi and his family. He has served as a trainer, Regional Director and President of SOWERS. This project raises funds for Kwesi to return to the US for specialist follow-up treatment following his time there last year. We want to give Kwesi every chance to make a full and complete recovery from cancer and the back/leg pain he was treated for.

Central African Republic

This project will see the launch of SOWERS in Central African Republic. Pastor Sachou (ex Ivory Coast) is keen to get the Program up and running and will be overseeing it in CAR. The United Methodist Church aims to plant 50 new churches in the next two years. Emmanuel from DR Congo will help and advise. Could you help meet some of the inevitable costs?

Vanuatu church leadership invited our Asia-Pacific Regional Director to bring SOWERS training to their islands. As well as the normal reasons for accepting an invitation like this, workers from Vanuatu go to New Zealand every year for seasonal work, so developing the SOWERS Program and monitoring its progress should be easier. This also provides SINZ with an affordable option for training or allowing interested people to see the work first hand.

Large Tent

Our Ugandan staff gave careful consideration and diligently researched their Income Generating Project options. I was impressed with the thoroughness of the proposal. Over time, they would like to be able to hire out tents and chairs of several different sizes to groups and organizations requiring them for functions. The income generated will give SOWERS Uganda much needed funds to put towards their ministry. In the first stage we are aiming to fund 3 sets of tent plus 100 chairs. Each set costs USD2185.

The first set is paid for! Could you help towards the next?

This project is to erect a 73m long x 2.4m high wall fence around two sides of the Lusaka SOWERS house in Libala. There will be a 4m x 2.4m gate made of mild steel with an opening of 4m with provision for locking. The house stands on the corner of Sixteenth Street and Kabuyu Road. The house is in a residential part of Lusaka and currently is very exposed and needs a wall fence for security. The majority of houses in the area have wall fences and the SOWERS house is one of only a few in the area with no security. The erection of a wall fence and gate around the property will provide much needed security and it will mean that the current rent on the house will at least double. This will provide security for the tenant and additional funds for the Zambian Board. Part of the house has a hedge which can easily be penetrated but there is no gate so dogs cannot be kept for security. In the past a grass fence has been erected around part of the house but it only provided a little privacy and no real security. In Lusaka most houses and wall fences are made of concrete blocks as the soil does not allow for bricks to be made and burnt. Concrete blocks are strong and long lasting.

This project will help the men to start businesses and equip them to become more self-reliant.

Churches are calling for training but not all can pay even the minimal cost. Others are calling us to visit to explain more about our ministry. There is a shortfall of funding. Would you consider even a little support for the ongoing ministry of SOWERS in the Philippines? USD11,400 per year; USD950 per month.  Donate online

Nepali Sowers are determined to work to raise funds for SOWERS ministry. A joint venture chicken farming has been chosen as a start. The joint venture will be 50/50 with the farmer providing the land. Sowers share is to fund a suitable building and supply the chickens. Can you help these Sowers help themselves?

Imagine having to walk down the street to a local vendor every time you needed to send an email or copy a document or do any number of everyday office tasks. What a drain on productivity! What inefficiency! Yet that is what our Philippines National Director has to do. Could you help supply a computer and printer? USD1180.  Donate online

damaged equipmentYou will have heard of the near civil war that followed the last election. Thank God that no Sowers were among those killed. Equipment and Manuals were looted though, leaving them with nothing to work with. Would you consider providing the seed funding to restart the work? USD3450 would do it. Perhaps you have a $100? Every bit will help. Donate online

Charged with imparting vision, direction, inspiration and encouragement to Sowers around the world, the President needs to travel. Depending on where the President lives, his/her communication budget may also need boosting.   Donate online. Thanks.

Good governance is a key function in any organisation. SOWERS' Governance Board members need to represent a wide international range of interests. Stringent attention to costs ensures that most of the Board's work is done electronically. It is crucial, though, that the Board periodically meets face-to-face. Donate online. Thanks.

Internet linkIt is no news to anyone that communication is critical. SOWERS makes a huge effort to keep costs to a minimum by using electronic communication wherever possible. Yet even that is relatively expensive in countries such as Zimbabwe where other things can be so inexpensive.  One donation of USD465 per year to cover the cost of internet access would release other desperately needed funds for very productive ministry.   Donate now

Congolese Christians have been trained by Zambian Sowers and are now spearheading the work in Katanga Province of DR Congo. Church planting is proceeding rapidly. Already the work has reached a stage where a couple of senior Sowers need to travel to train, shepherd, and develop other leaders. These experienced men need prayer and some support to replace the 'lost' income from other sources for caring for their families. Would you pray with us? They need USD400 month. If you could give part or full support, please DONATE ONLINE.
