Orchard: Africa is a non-profit organization restoring hope to the vulnerable by creating sustainable change in rural African villages. This organization is near and dear to my heart, because my parents are deeply involved with it (Dad is on the Board, Mom and Dad have traveled to Africa work directly in the villages).
All proceeds from art sold this month will be donated to support Orchard:Africa’s unique and sustainable model…. a training program that will make a lasting change in communities. Programs are implemented that can continue – often without requiring ongoing financial support. Youth receive HIV/AIDS training, they receive food and water daily, then they receive care, counseling and life skills. This model is different because it empowers sustainability so that the village can carry on with little or no funding in the future.
Full disclosure…..Orchard: Africa is a Christian ministry openly and unashamedly. But it is not exclusionary. They recognize that not everyone is religious and do not discriminate in any way whatsoever in their support, care and love.
