As you think about all you’re thankful for this year, will you keep in mind the ministry of Man Up and Go? We’re looking to raise approximately $78,400 in the last 40 days of 2018 to launch us into 2019 with a firm footing and the ability to move forward with all of our plans for Authentic Masculinity.
Around the globe, there are approximately 153 million orphans, and Man Up is doing its part in Uganda, Ethiopia, the Dominican Republic, and the United States to partner with local organizations meeting the needs of these children. By enrolling at-risk children into our child sponsorship programs, our partners are able to clothe, feed, and educate these children. By supporting our Fair-Trade initiative, you’re buying products that go to directly support the single mothers and widows in our vocational training programs.
Engaging the fatherless and empowering single mothers and widows are triage strategies to meet the most urgent needs.
Our prevention strategy, on the other hand, is centered around the men. Since men are the ones abdicating responsibility all over the globe in both developed and developing nations, we believe God has called us prevent fatherless children in the future by training men today.
This is our biggest financial need. Currently we run our year-long Authentic Masculinity Program (AMP) in Uganda. In 2019, we believe God is calling us to:
- Expand to three more cohorts of 20 men each in Uganda;
- Partner with vetted organizations in Korah (Addis Ababa) Ethiopia to run AMP with one cohort there;
- Expand to launch AMP in the Dominican Republic in Pastor Kendar’s “basurero” community.
