Crystal and Lisa-Jo have teamed up to start a Ten Dollar Tribe. This is simply a group of people who commit to give $10 per month towards this ministry. The cool part is that 100% of the funds from this project goes towards ministry.
Ten dollars doesn’t seem like a lot. But your money goes farther in South Africa.
- $10 will buy 100 bowls of porridge for school children
- $10 can provide 7 cooked meals
- $10 can supply a month’s worth of school supplies
- $10 can buy 2 weeks of cooking fuel for a local family.
And get this — $10 is a Caregiver’s full wage for a day!
Another thing I really appreciate about this is that the ministry is being accomplished by local leaders. I really think that God uses local people to reach their communities in amazing ways that foreigners can’t accomplish.
Ten dollars may not seem like a lot to us, but when a lot of people give ten dollars it really adds up. Plus I think about the Bible stories of how God uses little to do big things like using one little boy’s lunch to feed thousands.
