SUCCESS: MEASURED BY NUMBERS AND PEOPLE
A business which increased sales by over 400% in four months is amazing! An NGO which increased the number of lives it changed by over 400% in four months is miraculous! Thank you for contributing to The Lord’s Hands miraculous growth!
Beginning in September 2020 as a dream shared by three people and developing into a fully organized and certified NGO by November 2020, The Lord’s Hands awarded 15 refurbished computers to excellent Pathway students in Central Africa in January 2021.
You, our much-appreciated donors, helped raise over $40,000 through GlobalGiving, including a $3000 Bonus Award for the most money raised by an organization in the GlobalGiving Accelerator Campaign! As a result of your generous contributions, 63 computers were awarded to outstanding Pathway students after the Spring competition!
Our goal for the Fall Campaign, which began August 1, is to distribute 100 or more computers! Students are evaluated on 3 essential criteria---3.5 GPA in Pathway courses, Plan of Service, and Letter of Recommendation---in addition to competitively judged essays and videos.
The over 400% growth in number of computers delivered was topped by the 466% growth in number of countries served. Computers were distributed to students in three Central African countries in January. After the Spring campaign, computers were given to students in 14 countries: Malawi, Rwanda, Zimbabwe, Liberia, Uganda, Kenya, Sierra Leone, Nigeria, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ghana, Togo, Congo-Brazzaville, Burundi, and Ivory Coast!
Enough of the awesome numbers. The real success is the change made in the lives of students. Your donations are changing future generations!
