“Between October 5th and 15th, we will be in Kayamandi to provide personal and oral hygiene products, and purchase desperately needed shoes for the children, that will help to prevent the spread of disease,” says AJ Golden, pastor of Chosen Ministries in North Hollywood, California. “For the young girls, especially, proper undergarments will be supplied because they have a higher probability of getting raped in this township, than of receiving an education.”
The partnership is working to raise $40,000 to feed more than 1,000 hungry children, purchase shoes, clothing and educational materials for school-aged children. The missionaries will also remodel a local church and provide education to children of the township and children in local orphanages.
Internationally, the group is working with Kuyasa Empowerment, a local non-governmental organization (NGO) that is revitalizing the community through their work with the children and parents of Kayamandi.
“We feel very fortunate to have this opportunity to partner with Chosen Ministries,”
Pastor Golden is asking for a tax-deductible donation of only $39 from 1,000 people toward their mission to supply travel expenses, supplies, food and materials for the community there. He has set a personal goal to have the funds raised by his 39th birthday on May 25th. He’s also seeking additional financial partners and pleading for public outreach to spread awareness about this important need.
The group plans to teach more than 60 children key academic concepts in preparation for the upcoming school year and provide applicable training materials to supplement their classroom instruction. The missionaries will also help remodel a local church and provide materials for teaching young ones in local orphanages.
