When your church sponsors a village, you’re taking part in the transformation of a community in lasting ways. Working with village leaders, we help identify the specific needs of the village and the community takes part in its own transformation. Although each village is unique, some of the most critical needs in the areas where we work include:
Westminster Presbyterian Church stepped out in faith to walk alongside the village of Harako, a community facing a desperate situation. To the delight of the Westminster congregation, Harako has blossomed in amazing ways. What they weren’t expecting was their church being transformed as well. Watch the video of how One Church and One Village were transformed.
When the people of Harako, Chad returned to their village after the Darfur crisis, they found nothing. No sign their village ever existed. No means to rebuild. But through their own hard work—and with the support of World Concern and Westminster Presbyterian Church—the village has rebuilt and is now thriving.
