leave a legacy
In addition to the ‘House of Shalom’ property, there are two sections next to the house, that are also on the market at a price of USD$15,000 each. We have secured the purchase of these two sections with a security deposit of USD$10,000. These sections will be used to develop ‘for-profit’ projects for sustainability, as outlined further in this document. Since 2017, we have been able to raise fences and level the ground on these sections.
The strategy for the second block of land is currently in the development stage. The idea is to use this for a sustainability project that will potentially help us generate income to operate the House of Shalom.
At this point three different options are being considered: Hostel, Skill Development Centre or Child Development Centre with a Montessori approach; however, we are not limited to these possibilities should a more appealing option arise. We will consider the option that will have the greatest market demand as well as profitability. As an ideal scenario, I would love to use this land for a child development centre with a Montessori approach, as a generational human trafficking prevention strategy. It starts with the most vulnerable little ones, and focusing on children is also one of the ways to shape the culture.
In either way we need a project leader who would like to lead the project from start to finish. So if you have a desire to explore Central Asia and do something incredible for the nation please contact me. This is a long-term commitment.
PROJECT THREE – TEACH A MAN TO FISH
“Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime” (an old proverb).
In the country we are working in, a huge issue the people face, is the inability to provide food for their families; we want to begin to address this issue.
Major environmental changes, as well as lack of people to work on farms, contribute significantly to low food production. Most men emigrate for work, leaving women and children behind.
There is scope for growing food on site and using it as a training ground for agriculture by implementing technologies, such as drip irrigation, tunnel houses, hydroponics and aquaponics.
Once again, we do need a project leader who would like to lead this project from start to finish. So, as per project two, if you have a desire to explore Central Asia and do something incredible for the nation please contact us. This is a long-term commitment.
These two projects will be designed to support the sustainability of the core ministry: House of Shalom.
We have so many more dreams, such as: reforestation of the city, and potentially the whole country, and of forming a holistic health centre, which is so needed in the country.
