To provide future access to quality Christian education for the children of Hosur, India.
Dearest Friends, Family, and Fellow Church Members:
From the start of this school year, La Sierra University's SIFE team, in concert with Maranatha Missions, has been hard at work gathering the resources necessary to make project One-Day-School: India a reailty. Our vision is to construct a 10 building, Seventh Day Adventist Campus in Hosur, India, providing over 300 of India's impoverished children with access to quality Christian education. This project will also aim to provide La Sierra University's future Student Missionaries with multiple opportunities to serve God's people for years to come.
We are extremely excited about this project, as we are the first SIFE team to ever attempt a project like this, and the positive impact that this project has the potential to have on the community of Hosur is of a high order. Funding for most of the builidings has already been raised, and the first phase of the project is ready to launch! Over the week of March 22-April 1 , a group of 10 of our SIFE team members (including myself) will fly out to Hosur, India to build 2 of the projected 10 buildings that this future Christian instituion will house.
This is where YOU come in.
I, alongside each of my fellow SIFE teammates, need to personally raise the $2000 worth of airfare/travel expenses needed to get to Hosur, India from Southern Califonria. This is a rather large amount, and we cannot accomplish this without your help. Be assured that ALL proceeds will go to pay for travel expenses and supplies necesary to build this campus. It is crucial to the project that each one of the selected SIFE members raise the given amount by March 17, 2012, as plane tickets and visas must be purchased in a timely manner. It is also crucial that each project member make it to India, as our time there is limited, and each helping hand is necessitated in order to accomplish our 3+ building goal in one week. Any contribution will have a great impact as it takes us one step closer to making this vision a reality, and will be highly appreciated. Be a part SIFE: La Sierra's mission to create a better, more sustainable world through the positive power of business.
