We believe that children are made in the image of God and loving and nurturing them is a sacred calling. Each child is unique with boundless potential. We look for every opportunity to develop children as they pursue their dreams. We do this through our Sponsor a Child program. We currently partner with three schools and are developing programs with six others.
Your elementary-age daughter walking hours daily to fetch water instead of being in school. She gets up every morning to the same desperate routine. Her hope is on hold. In Africa, girls under the age of 15 are twice as likely as boys to be responsible for getting water for the family. To pursue a hopeful future, she and her family need water…every day.
Our Living Wells projects bring together the three goals of LPI: children are educated, churches are equipped, and communities are empowered.
$10,000 puts a water well in a village, providing clean water, vegetable gardening, fish and poultry production, jobs for a community, and a strategic center for community development.
Our passion at LPI is to fulfill the great commission of Jesus to make disciples of all nations. We do this by training community transformers. These community leaders oversee and maintain the wells as a base for community outreach. The church thus becomes a strategic center of community development.
Our pastor support fund provided food and living expenses for 250 pastors during the Covid crisis. Today our pastor support fund meets the basic needs of pastors in need.
Le Pont is working with the three schools to provide incentive-based scholarships for those students who can not pay the tuition. Each student receiving a scholarship is carefully evaluated by the administration and teachers to ensure the student is committed and that the family of the student is in need of assistance.
When you sponsor one or more of these students you are making a high impact investment in the future of these children and in Africa.
