DOUBLE THE IMPACT OF YOUR GIVING !
The new Fountain of Life boys’ home is in need of completion before the boys can move in.
Amongst other benefits, they will have showers instead of buckets for bathing!
The remaining needs range from furniture (beds, bedding, tables, chairs, etc.) to kitchen finish out to sewer connection and solar heating (and many things in between). They are close but move in is still beyond their reach.
Empower Dreams is establishing a matching funds action for this noble cause.
We will MATCH YOUR DONATION up to a total of $15,830 for a benefit to Fountain of Life of $31,660 USD that will allow the completion of the home.

What is the need?
The boys home is in the process of constructing a permanent home (above) for their boys to replace the aluminum building that has served as their home for years. The current building(below) does not provide protection from rain or temperature changes and does not provide shower facilities or a modern kitchen.
1. Why is funding needed immediately?
Construction is well underway but they lack $30,000 USD in order to complete the home so that it can be occupied.
2. How is Empower Dreams uniquely qualified to meet this need?
We take great care to identify the projects that have signficant, long lasting impact in furthering God’s work. Orphans/street boys are near and dear to our hearts and this will provide a family style group home in a Christian environment.
3.What is the benefit of taking action?
The foundation of Life boys’ home is currently supporting 44 former street boys, providing for their ongoing spiritual, physical, and educational needs. Since 2000 when the ministry started as a feeding program, more than 100 boys have gone through primary and secondary education in a safe and loving environment.
