Many years ago, when I first became a Christian and started learning about the realities of the rest of the world, especially the realities of extreme poverty throughout the world, an idea came to my mind. What if we went into some villages in a country, say Kenya, and, along with telling them about the Lord, we gave them opportunity and invested in their community and businesses. We could do this by finding out what crafts and products they make and what kind of resources they have. We could then help them develop products to bring back and sell to us first worlders… and we would make sure they were paid fairly. The money they made and some of our residual income would then be invested back into their community.
Although I never did start the ministry, I am so happy today to find Gifts With A Cause and have a chance to share them. My goal is to bring Gifts With A Cause to all the mom blog readers, homeschoolers, and Christian groups I can find!
Here is a great infographic about what they do.
