Business is at the heart of our sustainablity.
Business is provision not just for our Village but for our workers.
The businesses at Villages of Hope generate 60% of the operating budget needed for the Village, and School. The businesses have also allowed us to impact the community as we have created over 130 jobs in an area where only 15% of the population are on a payroll. For everyone who does get a regular paycheck, there are 6-8 beneficiaries. People have food, school fees are paid, seeds can be bought for crops, children have a place to live, and much more. Through our job creation we are impacting over 1000 individuals.
Another benefit is that we now have training locations for the children in the Village as well as some of the school students. They are able to learn about food services in the Restaurant, agriculture working with the animals and crops, construction working beside our builders, plumbing, woodworking, driving, and more.
Our businesses include a restaurant, the largest truck stop in the country, large equipment rental, farm market, and mini-mart.
The care of children involves long term commitment both presence and financial. The daily needs of children for food, clothing, housing, medical care, education cannot end if donors cease giving. The work and ministry here cannot be solely dependent on the economic situation in the West. Therefore, our focus has been on developing businesses that will help sustain the call and ministry to the least of these.
