We have a number of large projects going on right now, and so we were thrilled when a local business offered us a $30,000 matching grant. For every donation that comes in over the next few weeks, they will be matched dollar for dollar up to $30,000.
This could not come at a better time for us. With the end of the year approaching fast, we have some commitments to meet by the end of the year, as well as a few large events coming up early next year.
Right now, we are working hard to open the brand new Life Cafe by Christmas. This will be a place where local young people can come to hang out and have a good time, in a positive and wholesome environment. You can watch a video about the project and see some of the needs for the cafe by visiting www.fundly.com/sponsorachair.
Secondly, we purchased some land earlier this year for a youth center. We paid half as a deposit, and the agreement is to pay the rest by the end of the year.
And finally, Children’s Retreat Churachandpur is coming up in January. The first retreat, held in January of 2014, attracted around 2,000 children. We do not know how many will come for the next one, but we are expecting a large crowd. And, of course, there are expenses involved in that.
We do not want to let this opportunity go to waste. Please consider making a donation online by clicking here or by sending a check to:
