The Neema Project exists to serve and equip vulnerable girls through education, counseling, and discipleship. Our vision is to create an environment where vulnerable girls experience healing, to bring transformation to their hearts, families, and their community for the glory of God.
"HE DELIVERED ME BECAUSE HE DELIGHTED IN ME."PSALM 18:19
The girls invited into the Neema family are coming from extremely vulnerable situations that have caused them to experience rejection, a lack of dignity, and a very low sense of self worth. We desire to address these issues through love, grace, healing and healthy relationships. Neema Project is committed to providing individual and group counseling, mentoring, and discipleship. Neema Project places a strong emphasis on individual heart transformation and enabling each girl to see all they are capable of.
Neema Project is designed for girls with limited education. There are few employment opportunities for those without education or specialized training in a skill. While extreme poverty and other life situations prevent them from receiving a traditional education, we provide them with professional training in tailoring, dress making, beauty and hair dressing. Our instructors teach through the national curriculum, preparing them to gain national certification. Our hope is that that each girl graduates with a useful trade that will provide her with dignified work.
When each girl graduates from Neema Project, it is our hope that she will reintegrate back into her home community and that her presence will transform the lives of her family and community members. Our hope is that she will love and encourage them, helping to restore their hearts as hers was restored. We also hope that she will use the training she received to impact her local economy – doing an apprenticeship, getting a job, or even starting her own small business.
Last month we joined together for 30 Days of Prayer for Neema Project. What better way to join our hearts together than through prayer.
Special thanks goes out to …Read more →
