There are a variety of ways for your school, church or business to contribute to Mamalata Village.
A popular option, especially for parochial schools and businesses, is Jeans Day – where students or employees donate a nominal sum of cash ($5-$10) in order to wear jeans for a day. If just 100 students or employees participate at $5.00 each, $500.00 could be raised to buy livestock, school supplies, building materials or other sustainable goods for orphans and their Christian adoptive parents in the Congo.
Bake Sales are another popular option for schools and school clubs. Because French is the national language spoken in the Congo, French Clubs have even more added benefits.
We are constantly in need of donation items (for a list of suggested items, please click here) – especially electronics such as computers, monitors, keyboards, printers and other electronic devices. Even if they are broken or malfunctioning, we can use them to train students in electronic repair. Rather than simply giving the poor money, we will train them to repair electronics, thus creating long-term income. Several schools have held successful donation drives that have changed the lives of many in the Congo. Rather than simply throwing out outdated equipment as your business upgrades, consider donating it to a worthy cause.
Donation of Space/Land
Oftentimes, what we need is space: space to store items that haven’t been shipped to the Congo yet, space to host a presentation to raise awareness, or even just space to hold a fundraiser. Churches can help spread the love of Christ by inviting a speaker to come inform the congregation about Mamalata Village and our efforts.
