Project of the month

India: Children's homes in South India

Children, and particularly girls, often lead difficult lives in India. The facilities offered by the Church of South India allow many to escape child labor and oppression.

Lebanon: Philemon Project

Too many children in a tiny room without any toys and there is only a TV running. This is what an illegal day care looks like for migrant and refugee children in Lebanon. Now there is hope and protection for the toddlers and their parents "under God's rainbow".

Indonesia: Rearing Animals – A Way out of Poverty

A poor economic situation, great poverty and next to no perspectives. Farmers in Indonesia often live on the edge of survival. Two Indonesian churches want to combat family poverty with animal rearing projects to enable their poorest members to have a better future.

Indonesia: Centre for Pig Breeding

Poverty in rural areas of Indonesia is wide-spread. Despite their back-breaking work in the fields, families have scarcely enough to survive, let alone pay for visits to the doctor or to send their children to school. Breeding suckling pigs offers farmers an opportunity to secure their future.

Indonesia: Theological Training

Nine Indonesian churches are members of the EMS Fellowship. They and their congregations are all faced with both minor and major challenges.

Ghana: Women Rearing Small Animals

Women in Ghana were given equal rights by law in 1992. However, they are still at a disadvantage compared with men when it comes to education and the labour market. An animal rearing project developed by the Presbyterian Church of Ghana now strengthens the role of women.
