When API chose the location for our school, we strategically chose an area that had high levels of poverty and no other non-profits in the area that were helping to offer relief. We have started a women’s program that meets every week. In this program we have a Bible study and pray together as well as teach the women important life skills that can help strengthen themselves and their families. We also conduct with them family empowerment projects such as training and distributing seeds, rabbit and pig projects, solar units, providing medical care and dewormers and seedlings of nutritious fruit trees. We are hoping to soon start a Men’s Program that will teach men about God as well as well as to come alongside them and mentor them so that they can be the husbands and fathers we know that God intended for them to be!
