2014 Walk for Economic Empowerment - Team Zambia
A team for PEER SERVANTS
"2014 Walk for Economic Empowerment - Team Zambia" is a team to raise funds for CEMFIN, a Christian MFI in Zambia.
Western Zambia is a beautiful place. It is home to some of the warmest, most hospitable people one will ever meet. But the people of Western Zambia don't have access to many of the most basic human needs like being able to educate their children, having access to decent healthcare, and being able to afford clean water. The vast majority of Western Zambians live on $2 or less per day.
That's where CEMFIN (Christian Empowerment Microfinance) comes in. CEMFIN is a Zambian Christian microfinance institution addressing the needs of Zambian people. It has a Zambian board with Zambian management and staff. It extended an invitation to PEER Servants to partner with it and launched its program in 2012, and the organizations have been working together to extend the kingdom of heaven to Western Zambia ever since. 250+ people have already received loans and basic business training to start or grow small businesses, but thousands remain to be served.
Please click on "Fundraise" to the right and join Team Zambia to raise $10,000+ to create opportunities for the people of Western Zambia. 100% of what we raise will go to CEMFIN. You can walk right where you are when convenient with you, or join others on Team Zambia. Please see www.w4ee.org for the current Walk sites and dates.
If you have donors who prefer to give offline, ask them to make checks out to "PEER Servants" and give/mail them to you. Then just bring them to the Walk or mail them to PEER Servants at PO Box 258, Woburn, MA 01801. Please include a slip noting your name and the team you are on. You can also add the offline donations to your fundraising page to show the progress in meeting your fundraising goal.
May God bless you richly and multiply many times over what we can raise together to bless the people of Western Zambia.
