Outreach for the August
Ashley Holmer, who attended our church in her early years before moving to Oregon, spoke to our congregation in June about The Red Sweater Project.
Having lived in Tanzania since 2005, Ashley has become passionate about providing post elementary education to the youth of Tanzania, especially for girls. In 2008, she co-founded the Orkeeswa Secondary School outside Arusha, which today educates over 200 students. In 2012, in partnership with the town of Mto Wa Mbu, Ashley fundraised and oversaw the construction of Mungere Secondary School. The school currently enrolls 80 students and will add more in the new year.
Not only do the students learn English, writing, math and computer skills but they gain confidence and critical thinking skills giving them hope for a productive and happy future. The youth are also provided safe water, nutritious food and health services.
Our challenge in August is to help provide 40 students with uniforms including the official red sweater and new shoes. Please place your donation in the yellow or blue envelope and label your donation ‘Red Sweater Project’.
More can be learned about Ashley’s ministry in Tanzania at www.redsweaterproject.org.
