Randy Wilson, the Executive Director of Work For Life, sent me a cold email in 2018. From that email, a realtionship was created and a vision was formed on how People Bridge could support and help multiply their ministry.
On a trip to Uganda Africa in 2019, I personally witnessed the power of the Work For Life program in person. Instead of giving money to people in support of their daily lives, Work For Life was actually providing life changing education and mentorships that taught people how to be self sufficient.
In working smarter, not harder, a $12 investment in a receptive student multiples 100X over the years of that student providing for themselves, their community, and their church. Through practical business training, men and women learn to create profitable businesses that transform their communities.
This is NOT a handout program. It is hard work. Follow through requires sacrifice, commitment, and grit. Yet, 88% of students launch or grow a profitable business within a year that finish this 20 session course taught by a trained local leader.
It works. It is faith with feet. Join me by learning more, giving, and prayer.
Through People Bridge's support of the Work For Life in 2023, we grew the number of business owner trained from 200 to over 500!
These efforts not only increased participants salaries by 74%, but they create a ripple effect through the students family, impacting on average, 12 people within their family!
Through our partnership with FFL, we want to double our impact in 2024!
Our goal is to raise $40,000 - enough to double the Work for Life program in Kenya. This would take us from 500 monthly trainings to over 1000!
We need your financial support to reach these goals. Get involved in one of 2 ways:
1) Monthly support of $58/month -
This monthly amount provides for the training and mentorship for 12 small business owners.
2) One time support that will go to the general fund, which supports staff salaries and educational materials.
