We continue to add protein to the diets of vulnerable children, hospital patients and nursing mothers. In 2018, Stand as One served 176,000 cups of soy milk. Thanks to your generous donations we are able to see the benefits of this important work.

Harvest Center

We continue to work toward a centralized training center. Training groups are working our land and growing a diverse mix of crops that can then be sold.  So training, harvest, and income!

Foundations for Farming

We are excited about a new member of our team in Kalulu Village.  Isaac has a diploma in Theology, a background in farming, and has graduated from Crown Ministries Training course. He and Royson run the Farming Program, and he works with Kalulu's children and teens. We are blessed to have them both.

Agriculture Training

Isaac and Royson are a wealth of information and have had the chance to share with other groups. They held a clinic with Bright Vision, a sister charity in Chamadenga, near Kalulu, where the group learned much that they can put to use, and we had the benefit of seeing the chance for others to succeed.

Family Sponsorship is a new program to address the needs and dreams of our families in Kalulu who are faithful to the Farming God's Way Program.  Our focus is on individual families, and the community as a whole.

A new project was introduced this year for our teen boys, and for the whole community.  An international charity is supplying solar lights that through donations can be distributed to families in need. Simple lights, but much more than simple rewards.

Teamwork is something we promote and recognize in our culture. This is not the way it is in Malawi, but it is what our teenage boys have been learning from our team, and demonstrating here in an "Outhouse" building project. We are proud of you boys!

Meeting your sponsored child is an unforgettable experience. Ryan and Emily witnessed the difference their sponsorship makes to children in Malawi.

"I observed first hand the children that are being sponsored to go to the school and the benefits that have resulted.  Children are getting good educations, to the point where they are now being accepted into private school and more.  I support this program because at the root of the sponsorship a child is being given an education who wouldn't have otherwise received one, and education is one thing that will help that country more than anything. " Ryan Gray


Ebenezer Christian School in Nkhoma, Malawi continues to excel.  Our donors sponsor 18 children, providing funds for fees, uniforms and supplies, and exceptional opportunities.

William and Angela and their Children's Home are involved in Summer Evangelistic Camps, in Slum Children's Outreach and Kid's Camps.  Acha runs a weekly program for Street Kids.  These tireless servants provide the planning and presence, and thanks to funding from Alpha Foundation we can provide the food from Fedwell Foods.

Once again we thank Alpha Foundation for funding the food programs in Myanmar.  In 2018 we provided over 4 million meals to Children's Homes, IDP camps and emergency situations. Over 20,000 meals were sent to Putao Township in northern Kachin State where heavy rains caused flooding in September.

"When I was Hungry you Fed Me" continues to motivate and bring hope, here to the hundreds of people in an IDP camp due to military unrest in their villages.

Medical Mission

Over 8 days in February Dan was involved in a very unique medical mission trip in Myanmar. The team was on bikes! They were in remote areas in the Karen and Mon states, where over 1000 people received dental care, primary health care, eye care and glasses, as well as nutrition training and Alpha Protein soup.

Children's Homes

This work is funded by Alpha Foundation. There are over 700 children  whose lives are improved through our involvement in their Childrens Homes. We provide nutrition, plus funds for tutoring, health check-ups, school uniforms, and supplies. Irene got to organize a craft and game day. Looks like fun for all!

Join us October 5, 2019 for the next Ride for Refuge.

We Raised $25,000!
