What we aim to solve

Sadly, we are failing our children due to the devastating and protracted effects of poverty both in the U.S. and worldwide. Statistics bear witness to the dire state of God’s kingdom: ● More than 30% of children in developing countries – about 600 million – live on less than $1 (U.S.) a day. ● Every 3.6 seconds one person dies of starvation. Usually it is a child under the age of 5. (http://www.unicef.org/mdg/poverty.html) ● More than 1 billion children are severely deprived of at least one of the essential goods and services they require to survive, grow and develop. ● Some 300 million children go to bed hungry every day. Of these, only 8% are victims of famine or other emergency situations. More than 90% are suffering long-term malnourishment and micronutrient deficiency. ● Poverty doesn’t just affect children living in Africa. It affects children living in the United States too, especially in South Carolina where LLEM has its U.S. headquarters.

LLEM International (EIN: 81-1454115) is a 501(c)(3) unique Organization with a mandate of reaching out to the basic needs of men, women and children. We aim to empower and impact lives. Our goal is to help as many hurting humans as we possibly can. We strive to eliminate human suffering and to express love as a fundamental element for human development and international cooperation. We provide food, clothing, educational materials and medical care to the less privileged throughout the world. It’s not about what we can do on our own, but it’s about what we all can do together to reach the world in sharing love and in making a difference in people’s lives. LLEM is committed to improving the living conditions for the 6000 residents of Agu Na Ebere. Residents of Agu Na Ebere live with grinding day-to-day poverty and experience horrific living conditions. The Agu Na Ebere Clean Water and Hygiene Project goals are to: • reduce high rate of mortality due to a highly contaminated water. • enhance the overall health & hygiene of community residents. • bring an end to plastic bottle pollution in the community • provide residents with income generating opportunities via a community farm and garden.

LLEM hopes to build the second of two brand new wells in Agu Na Ebere and institute a hygiene project to improve the lives of children, teens, adults and seniors. In July, 2018 LLEM built the first of two water wells in Agu Na Ebere. LLEM also hopes to introduce a community garden so community residents have a sustainable and long-term way to make money.

The on the ground partner will be the Council of Chiefs led by the chief ruler of the Agu Na Ebere autonomous community. The leader of the Council of Chiefs is his Royal Highness, King Boniface Onyechiyere Ikpegbu.

The council of chiefs is a local governing body in Agu Na Ebere. They ensure philanthropic community projects are executed and provide leadership to ensure autonomous communities run smoothly.

The secondary partner will be the Assemblies of God church, an active local church in the Agu Na Ebere autonomous community. Many church members live in Agu Na Ebere and want to see a new well constructed.

The Council of Chiefs led by King Boniface Onyechiyere Ikpegbu will oversee the project from start to finish. The Assemblies of God Church will provide volunteer support at several important junctures.

1. The Council of Chiefs has already agreed to provide the land where the well will be build in Agu Na Ebere.
2. The Council of Chiefs has agreed to monitor and ensure the maintenance of the well along with the Assemblies of God church after the well has been installed to ensure that it meets community needs.
3. The Council of Chiefs has identified three acre space for a community farm and garden. The council will work with the Assemblies of God Church to promote the farm and garden space to ensure it runs smoothly.

LLEM International has developed a set of measurable benchmarks to examine the effectiveness of the Agu Na Ebere Clean Water and Hygiene Project.

1. Was each step of well construction completed according to the defined timeline developed by LLEM in consultation with its on-the-ground community partners?
2. Has a system for ensuring equal access to water for community residents been implemented and shared publicly?
3. Has a structured system for maintaining the well been implemented? Has a sustainable and practical maintenance system been enacted?
4. Is the overall health of community residents improving after the well has been built? Are community residents experiencing less evidence of water-borne illness? This measurement will be done via a community-wide survey.
5. Are community residents spending more time with their families now that they don't have to go so far away to get water? (Community survey)

LLEM’s ongoing program, “Educate the Masses,” has graduated over 4,000 Nigerian students from its free Bible correspondence course. This program is administered with the support of LLEM’s U.S. partner, Lamp & Light Publishers. In 2010, LLEM International provided medicine to de-worm 800 children in the Imo State of Nigeria. The success of this initiative led to similar programs being conducted in other Nigerian communities and has benefited over 2,000 Nigerian kids and orphans in the state of Aba, Nigeria. In 2016 LLEM successfully hosted a community empowerment conference in South Carolina. (United States). This conference facilitated a major change in the organization. Prior to 2016 LLEM was self-funded by its founder. After the success of the conference, the founder realized the need to engage God’s citizens in his work and to help them see the benefits of ministering. His belief in the kindness of others inspired him to further expand his mission from a self-funded organization to one where others can contribute. Now LLEM International is ready to grow into a powerful, worldwide Christian service organization. LLEM provided school materials to more than 3,000 children in Nigeria in 2017. In 2017 LLEM began a Child Sponsorship program which provides a holistic approach to child development, offering: education, food & water, medical care, leadership and discipleship.
