    Abraham's Farm Project

    Towards the end of 2020 we mentioned in our information emails the goal that Beacon of Hope has, to help our team leaders to become more financially independent.  Helping Abraham Mabhena of Zimbabwe with a farm project is our next effort to achieve this.  He has acquired a 7 acre property for just $1900.  The plan is to build a building that can serve as a caretakers accommodation and tool shed next step is to help him start developing it.  It will take $2800 to complete the building, which is already well under way. We still have $1800 to raise to complete the building.    Can you help with a $25, $50 or $100 donation to Abraham's project? Thanks for your kind consideration.  Just click donate here to direct your gift to Abraham's building project.
