transforming Malawi's prisons
H2O has built thriving churches in 10 out of Malawi’s 32 prisons with a total of 25,000 inmates in the congregation. Every pastor of these churches is an ex-convict.
H2O's training program free dozens of inmates yearly from prison by paying off their debt and teaching each prisoner a trade, so they can start to thrive when they return to the village.
Learn a trade - For just $70 to $240 per person, each prisoner can learn to do carpentry, electrician, masonry, sewing, etc so they can thrive outside of prison.
Medical care - H2O has constructed three hospitals in prisons with plans to build more as donations reach $6,000 for a hospital. People from the community line up outside of prisons so they can receive care from our hospitals.
Training center - H2O is sustaining a 2,000-square-foot training facility in Malua prison where prisoners learn 10-15 different subjects including agriculture, animal husbandry, construction, masonry, iron-mongering, English, computers, sewing, and irrigation.
Soccer leagues - We’ve supplied leagues whose teams compete in national tournaments. It may seem like no big deal, but when men who have nothing to live for except to sit in the dirt all day in prison have someone come to them and say, “Hey. You matter. I want you on my team. Come play!“
It’s life-changing. It’s putting the honor and value that God sees in them back into their consciousness again.
Building Prosperity . . .
bringing fresh life into Malawi's communities
Solar energy - provide lighting, cellphone charging, laptops, bakery, refrigeration, and milling corn, drying rice
Drilling wells - get clean water to cook, drink, and irrigate crops.
Microlending -fund small businesses such as convenience stores, bakery, poultry, and food products.
Surfing contest - over 1000 children and adults come to see the annual competition in Lake Malawi. No crocks or hippos allowed
Global and local ministries - distribution of medical supplies, recruiting international health care workers, local teachers, and educators.
H2O provides opportunities to help our neighbors!
Example of "Cityteam" solar project for Ensenada Mexico:
"City Team is partnering with Bright Vision Solar out of Santa Cruz to start a business project that will provide solar solutions to the challenges the poor in Latin America. We plan to launch the beta project in Ensenada and once a profitable business model is perfected, plan to scale it all over Latin America. Profits will cover some of that region's ministry expenses and provide seed capitol for kick-starting similar businesses in other regions while it provides good paying jobs to hardworking people.
This can be a game-changer for the disciple-making movements Cityteam launched in Latin America as it has the potential to provide sustainable and scalable funding that has not been the case thus far.
Before & After
Filthy & unsafe water for drinking and sanitary use.
Every water project requires a community to do their part.
Donate your share and bring clean water to a community today.
Clean water wells for drinking and growing use.
Drought - starvation
Irrigation from H2O water wells is providing excess crops for BVS villages, but the need is great for other orphanages.
Water - prosperity
Yes, teaching people to Survive and Thrive works!
Community Leadership Team
Team H2O will work with a community and guarantee success when the leadership team is in place.
Good well water supply yielded excess crops.
Team H2O suggested building a store, to sell the excess crops plus a solar oven to produce loaves of bread to sell.
The store was built by H2O's trained "surviving and thriving people". The store is generating profit for the community by selling crops and baked bread, as well as providing phone-charging stations.
The leadership team is now
operating a micro-lending business to help other orphanages and villages.
The leadership team has also built schools, installed solar lighting, and built new homes; the community is not only surviving, it is thriving.
What is next?
H2O Acadamy in Nkhotakota has over 400 students with a record of 100% participating students passing the secondary school entry exam.
Solar power will light up the classrooms and generate electricity for the computers.
H2O is also building a solar-powered system to support each village with electric power. Each village is excited about the opportunity and will be providing income to H2O to assist other villages to "survive and thrive".
"We invite you to use a similar model for your ministry, of teaching and helping people to "survive and thrive".
