"Project 1:27" comes from James 1:27 which reads...
"Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction"
We feel called by God to do something to help the orphans living in Uganda.
We make and sell craft items and all of our proceeds go to sponsor Nelly, an orphan living at Calo Me Lare in Lira, Uganda.
We sponsor Nelly through Project Hope Worldwide which was started by three friends from Discovery Bible Fellowship. If your family is interested in sponsoring a child through PHW, please visit their website at projecthopeworldwide.org .
This past spring, some of the members of Project 1:27 got to meet Nelly and her sister, Anna, while visiting Uganda. It was such a great experience to meet the girl Project 1:27 sponsors as they had already developed a relationship with them through letters.
Here is a short video about Project Hope Worldwide's sponsorship program...
Uganda is on the continent of Africa and sits right on the equator. Sadly, there are about 2 1/2 million orphans living in Uganda today.
Last year, we raised enough money to purchase 9 baby cribs for Arise and Shine babies home in Jinja, Uganda.
