South Asia Blockmaking Machines: Empowering the Poor

GIVING CODE:

ACM1843

REGION:

Eurasia

THE NEED:

$3,630.00

About the project

Several years ago, the first block-making project was started in the mountains of Sri Lanka, where poor plantation workers received training on a block-making machine. This provided the workers with a secure job and enabled them to care for their families. The machine was also widely used in other Nazarene projects: in the construction of church buildings, and most recently in the reconstruction of two schools in tsunami-devastated villages on Sri Lanka's East coast. Due to the success of this project, NCM South Asia would like to purchase additional block-making machines for Sri Lanka as well as Nepal.

Your gift towards the Block-Making Machines will provide training and a job for several underprivileged men (about 8–10 trainees per year) in Sri Lanka and Nepal, some of the world's poorest nations. Additionally, the machines will be a vital support for other projects by allowing the local churches and NCM to construct buildings more cheaply. These buildings will be used for church services and ministries to the poor and powerless, such as vocational training, awareness programs, self-help groups, and many more. NCM South Asia is planning to purchase 15–20 machines, both manual and electric. The project will be self-supporting within 6 months.

manual machine: $ 3,630 ($ 630 for the machine + $ 3,000 operating expenses for 6 months)
electric machine: $ 4,700 ($ 1,400 for the machine + $ 3,300 operating expenses for 6 months)
