The new Spirit in Action newsletter is hot off the (virtual) presses! You can view a PDF version here and the hard copies are in the mail this week!
In this newsletter we feature:
Christians and Muslims are encouraging each other in their businesses and praying together in Spirit in Action’s Small Business Fund in Nairobi, Kenya.
SIA’s pay-it-forward initiative passes piglets.
The new building for the Manyamula Community Savings and Investment Promotion Cooperative is almost complete! (And it looks fantastic!)
Read a description of each of SIA’s seven on-going grant projects.
There are always too many great photos to include them all in the newsletter, but luckily there is endless space online! Here are some bonus photos of Spirit in Action’s work:
Business leaders receive training in record keeping and pricing before receiving the $150 grant from SIA. This group, in Manyamula Village, Malawi, is filling out their business plans.
Hope for a new start! Each of the business leaders receive an initial grant of $100, to be followed up for an additional $50 in three months, if the business is doing well.
Girls who completed the Alternative Rite of Passage with CIFORD in Meru, Kenya sing and dance to encourage the girls in Samburu who are celebrating an empowering transition to adulthood.
Joyce received a small loan from WCI, one of SIA’s partner organizations in Zambia. She used her loan to buy this awesome knitting machine!
