By tackling the short term and the long-term pressures of poverty, together we can empower families to stay together.
Mission Without Borders works to support families in Eastern Europe through our Family sponsorship program, however, there are at least another 500 families still waiting for sponsors. Without your support, communities in Eastern Europe will continue to be forgotten and the next generation of vulnerable children will continue to suffer in poverty.
By sponsoring a family, you also set them up for long-term success.
Their future sustainability is important, and our programmes and strategies are designed to bring each family to self-sufficiency.
Self-sufficiency projects provide families with items that will enable the family to earn their own income and provide for themselves.
For example, if the local Coordinator identifies that the father in a family has skills in car mechanics but does not have his own tools to earn an income, we may establish a Self-sufficiency project for him to receive car mechanics tools and establish his own Car Mechanics workshop.
Of course, the family will still receive the usual care being enrolled in our Family Sponsorship programme, and the coordinator will work with the family to help them establish and run their business.
We'll stay with them until they are at a point that they no longer need Mission Without Border’s support and are self-sufficient and earning their own income.
This may be for a period of 6 – 12 months after implementing the project.
Self-sufficiency projects are initiated by our Field staff and Coordinators by identifying the families who, through their individual Care Plan and progress, are ready to take this next step to self-sufficiency.
