Starehe Children’s Home in Mwanza Tanzania cares for over 130 orphaned children who range in age from just a few days to 21 years old. At Starehe these children receive proper nutrition, shelter, education and a caring home where they have the chance to hear and respond to the good news about Jesus.
In 2010, Dawn Ellwyn served at Starehe in a volunteer capacity; now she is returning as a full-time global worker. Dawn will be serving as the Education and Sponsorship Manager, overseeing the primary and secondary schools, the after school program and those youth who are in the process of transitioning out of Starhe.
“I think the Lord put two and two together: my feet tend to get restless when I’m comfortable and I love people. Simply put, I feel called to Starehe because the Lord set it in my heart and that’s all I need to know.”
Give Every Day is not just another program or project, but a new stewardship mindset for our PAOC family. We believe that, by working together, individuals, families and churches with bold generosity and prayerful commitment to Give Every Day will accomplish great things locally, nationally and globally. We desire for Give Every Day to be a tool for the local church to inspire and support Canadians to move their core value of generosity into action, identifying opportunities for strategic stewardship, and realizing the potential that our PAOC family has as we work together.
One dollar. It doesn’t seem like enough to have much of a world-changing impact. However, if each one of the adult members of our PAOC family sowed even a one dollar seed for missions every day, we would double our missions budgets and reap a world-transforming harvest of $60 million a year.
