our mwana refuge...
Provides full-time care to “the Littles” with a priority of family preservation and reunification, then adoption for those children for whom reunification is not possible.
Serves as our country-wide ministry hub from which we serve “the Bigs” and “the Mamas” in practical and transformative ways with a goal of self-sufficiency.
The goal: $300,000 to build our permanent Mwana Refuge.
The Mwana Refuge Project will allow us to:
Expand our capacity for caring full-time for babies and children, with a goal toward family reunification or, when not possible, toward adoption
Open a preschool to serve Mwana children and local non-needy families (full tuition paying) as a revenue-generating stream
Operate a “Families First” community outreach program that serves vulnerable families in the community and focuses on training on issues such as water and food safety, maternal health and infant care, nutrition and job training skills.
