NCP's 2021 fall campaign

Tell us what you need

We asked our partners what they needed most, beyond our normal grants. Here’s what they said. How can you, your group, your congregation help them get what they need?











Auba, Congo: well

"I have visited this pygmy village and they request me to help them to dig a well for the fresh water.

They now travel two hours to look for the water at the Sangya River. Traveling a long distance has

caused many assaults against the girls and women, and the girls has not enough time to study.

Drinking the river water has also caused many diseases among them - especially children and older

people. Almost 850 households will benefit from this project. $7855 is the cost.”    – Ron Lubungo

Raised so far: $10


Gisenye, Rwanda: tailoring center

“As you know, training a girl or a woman is like training a community.

The tailoring center will serve 20 women as a place to store and

sell their products. More importantly, this center will be a place that

the group will carry on their daily activities without any interruption.

Right now, each woman is renting a small place where they do their

tailoring. They may earn $80 to $100 per month, but over half of their

income is needed to pay rent for their stall at the market. The center

will cost $11,000, and each woman will pay a small monthly amount

for upkeep. We deeply appreciate you for helping us to empower

them in their life’s endeavors.”   – Etienne Nsanzimana

Raised so far: $100

Lake Tanganyika, Congo: hippo (& fish) habitat

“Grass and coastal trees along this large lake are being destroyed by human activity and flooding. As a

result, there is soil erosion, fish don’t have a place to lay eggs, and hippos are more prone to head inland

at night to sleep and graze, destroying crops. That’s why we would love to plant trees and grasses there.

We are requesting $5,000 for 7.5 acres, but we can use more if this is available.”  – Ron Lubungo

Raised so far: $25

Lybrook, NM: tiny house

“A young Dineh family has such a poor house that they spend much

of the day under a tree. If you could provide $3500 for materials and

also send a group to help with construction of this house and with

weatherization of other homes, that would be great.”    – Erik Dennison

Raised so far:

Batwa community, Rwanda: fruit trees

“We would like to plant 500 fruit trees. We will grow them in the

nursery and hope to distribute them to people, especially the young

people & Batwa women to plant in their homestead. However, we will

also plant another part of those trees on rented land collectively so that

we can grow together and share the fruits with the vulnerable and children

in our society in a period of two years. Total cost: $1270.”  – Etienne Nsanzimana

Raised so far:


Balaka, Malawi: beekeeping 

“The beekeeping project will enable 20 households to diversify

their sources of income, which increases resilience to climate

change. It will also have a positive impact on food supply and

nature conservation. The cost is $3500."    – Taona Makunje

Raised so far: $20 

Balaka, Malawi: sanitary pads project

"This is for girls' capacity-building sessions which will include training in sanitary pads making and

in becoming a role model for other girls in their communities. Research has shown that most girls are

absent from school during their menstrual period due to not having sanitary pads. Learning to make

reusable sanitary pads significantly reduces absenteeism. We intend to train 30 girls, who will in turn

share the knowledge to other girls. The girls will also be developed as role models to share life skills

that will help other girls fight issues of gender-based violence, mental health and others. Budget estimated

at $2,500."     – Taona Makunje  

Raised so far:

Holy Trinity Peace Village, S. Sudan: grinding mill

“The World Food Program is providing sorghum and maize for St. Thomas primary

school, but there is the challenge of grinding since the area is remote – the closest

grinding mill is 60 miles away. Therefore, the 279 children (including 45 girls receiving

NCP scholarships)mostly eat boiled grains as they cannot make flour. Improved feeding

will most likely attract more learners to be enrolled in the school and those enrolled

will be retained. The grinding mill will not only help St. Thomas primary school but

other nearby schools. The cost is $3660.”        – Gladys Mananyu
