The primary goal of BEMI is to offer the Hope of Jesus by first meeting the very fundamental needs of food, clothing, and shelter to orphans and widows. And our purpose is to establish unity, peace, and reconciliation among different people, families, tribes, ethnic groups, and religious groups in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Burundi, and Rwanda.
We desire to help these people to reconcile deep-seated differences and to build trust among former adversaries, through conflict resolution and reconciliation education and training.
We are presently assisting children, especially orphans of war and genocide, to attend school on a regular basis by financing tuition, providing school uniforms, supplies, and food.
For the widows and single mothers, we endeavor to help them rebuild their lives via small scale business and farming enterprise development. Our plan for them to succeed is by our providing two goats to each woman so that she support herself and her children. The women would breed the goats, glean milk from the female; produce dairy products for themselves and their family, and then sell what they do not consume. At the end of one year with breeding yielding a new generation of goats, each woman would be able to contribute something back to the Mission; and thereby, enjoy the opportunity to make a personal contribution to the Mission that first offered them a hand in the name of Jesus!
We are a non-profit organization and welcome any kind of support. If you would like to help out, please contact us.
God bless you!!
