Trip By: LEAMIS International Ministries
Location: Kenya, Eastern Africa
When: Customizable: Jan-Nov 2019
Learning how to make candles not only meets a vital need for those with little to no electricity, but it also opens the opportunity of added income for those in developing nations.
Teaching a candle making workshop will open new opportunities to participants as well as meet daily personal needs in areas with limited or no electricity.
The long-term goal of this workshop is to help students learn how a candle making can be turned into a self-sustaining “cottage industry.”
We will provide you with a basic workshop outline and marketing suggestions.
While you are in Kenya, you may want to extend your trip a couple of days and take advantage of their many safari opportunities.
Through such projects, LEAMIS promotes transformational development by empowering local pastors and believers with the tools and resources they need to impact their communities for Christ. The goal is to multiply the impact by empowering local persons to share what they know with others rather than depending on outside help.
Transformation speaks to the spiritual need of recovering our true identity as humans created in the image of God and restoring relationships with God, ourselves, our community and the environment.
Development speaks to discovering our true vocation as productive stewards, faithfully caring for the world and all the people in it. As such, we seek to assist others in developing self-sustaining means to achieve this.
