HOW WE WORK We provide support to churches, para church groups and campus fellowships through our life application training programmes, seminars and conferences. Our support is defined in the following ways: Training: We train Church workers who work with children and marriage counselors who counsel preparing or young couples to understand the fundamentals of parenting according to God’s principles. These training programme types are periodic and are certified. Seminars: We run open seminars on our core areas of competence as stated earlier. We charge a token for these courses. These can be done for a ministry requesting for our products or at our office address. Impact Investing: 10% of proceeds from our training programmes are used in facilitating the educational development of orphans. We call this Impact investing. We plan to send 50 orphans back to school by the end of the year 2015.
