What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

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.

Sponsor A Child

If we are considering making the world a better place, we cannot afford to ignore education. We need to help those children who do not have the opportunity to receive an education.
Education is the best way to remove the barriers of poverty and help those less fortunate gain the skills they need to better their lives.

Sponsoring a child pays eternal reward. It takes little more than a dollar a day to sponsor a child with LLEM. Many families in the USA can spend as much on a single visit to a fast food restaurant as it takes to sponsor a child. The absence of that money each month will be far overshadowed by the impact that it will have on your sponsored child.

GETTING STARTED IS AS EASY AS A-B-C-D

A) Once you've made the decision to sponsor a child, browse through our child gallery and select the child you want to sponsor.

B) Fill out the form with your contact information and select your sponsorship and payment options. Make it simple and set up a recurring monthly donation on your bank card. Other giving methods are available, too; just choose whatever that works best for you.

C) Once we process your information, you will receive a confirmation letter from us.

D) Send your personal message to your sponsored child and email it to: [email protected]
WHEN YOU SPONSOR A CHILD, HERE'S WHAT YOU PROVIDE:
1. EDUCATION

"The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education." Martin Luther King, Jr.
Education is the best way to remove the barriers of poverty and help those less fortunate gain the skills they need to better their lives. We provide Christian-based education to the children in our school, through pre-school, tutoring and after-school education programs. You have the opportunity to supply your sponsored child's educational needs to ensure they get what they need for a solid life foundation.
"...train up a child in the way that he should go and when he is old, he will not depart from it." Proverbs 22:6 KJV

2. FOOD & WATER
Children are provided access to clean water and nutritious meals at least five days each week at the school, while those at the orphanage home are fed seven days a week.

3. MEDICAL CARE
Illnesses such as malaria, typhoid, and cholera are predominate in Africa, especially in rural communities. These preventable illnesses destroy the lives of adults and children. Orphans and less privileged children are especially prone to suffering from poor healthcare. Consequently, many lives have been lost to preventable and treatable minor illnesses and diseases. We are on a mission of reaching out to these and saving their lives for Christ.

4. DISCIPLESHIP
We provide ongoing discipleship programs in which the children learn about the love of God and how the Bible teaches us to live. The children come together every day to memorize a passage of the Bible, and they are taught how to apply it in their lives as well as teach other children what they learned from the word of God. With this, the word of God is taking root in them, which is able to give them wisdom and build them up, as in the case of Timothy in the Bible.
We are able to help them discover their God-given talents. We also show them how they can have a significant impact on their world by serving others through community outreaches as well as caring for others.

5. LEADERSHIP
As Vince Lombardi said: leaders are made, not born! They are made by hard effort, which is the price all of us must pay to achieve any goal that is worthwhile. As the children grow older, we begin to expose them to various trades and career options, and we work to prepare them to acquire the skills they'll need. Our goal is to see the children grow and become the leaders and the transformers that are needed to change their communities, their country and the whole of Africa in general.

Population(s) Served

Agu Na Ebere has been forgotten by local, state and federal government officials. In addition to needing clean drinking water, this community is in dire need of many other things including medical care and access to good schools. Life is hard there, and people do not have access to basic life necessities.

LLEM International, Inc. is committed to improving the living conditions for the 6,000 residents who reside in Agu Na Ebere.

Currently, the biggest problem facing community members is that they do not have access to a clean water source and they are forced to gather water from a contaminated water source that seeps and oozes. In this rural location, water filters through the soil from beneath the surface without a defined channel and is highly polluted. We at LLEM International think that the people of Agu Na Ebere deserve better things. Unclean drinking water causes myriad health problems and can even lead to death.

LLEM International, a nonprofit organization is committed to rescuing the people of Agu Na Ebere by providing clean drinking water. Our work doesn’t end there. We also are committed to providing community members with other things to improve their hard lives, including care packages to meet their hygiene needs.

We are pleased to announce the launching of the new Agu Na Ebere Clean Water and Hygiene Project to help the community of Agu Na Ebere.

The Agu Na Ebere Clean Water and Hygiene Project will have a broad and sustainable positive impact and will empower and strengthen the Agu Na Ebere community. The project will:

1) Reduce the high rate of mortality due to a highly contaminated water
2) Decrease the number of cases of preventable illnesses
3) Bring an end to plastic bottle pollution in the community

We want to ensure the community doesn’t have to face water-borne illnesses and preventable diseases. such as cholera and typhoid fever. We want to ensure a new generation of healthy children and young adults.

In July, 2018 LLEM built the first of two water wells in Agu Na Ebere was completed.

Our plan for revitalizing the Agu Na Ebere Community has two parts:

1) We will drill two wells in the middle of the community to provide clean water sources
2) We will hand out care packages to all 6,000 residents on a regular basis, which will consist of hand sanitizers, soap, deodorant, toothbrushes, toothpaste, lotions, tissues and washcloths. We will also provide women and girls with access to proper sanitary items.

Population(s) Served

LLEM International has a wide variety of educationally focused initiatives designed to improve the lives of less-privileged children, including orphans, who reside in Agu Na Ebere, Nigeria, and in the surrounding communities.

LLEM currently supports an existing school in a very rural location in Asa, Abia State, Nigeria, but the school needs some donor love! The existing school facility is very small, old, and outdated, and the building is in dire need of rebuilding. More importantly, the building just cannot meet the needs of the growing rural community. There is an urgent need to build a larger, more modern school site to serve more children and adults. We cannot let this community down!

Children with higher levels of literacy are better equipped in so many important ways. First, children who are literate experience fewer health-related issues. They are healthier and stay healthier into adulthood. Also, girls who are literate are less likely to be married off as child brides (a problem in Nigeria) and have much lower levels of teen pregnancy. For this reason, LLEM is very committed to building a top-notch, modern school facility where all children, especially children who have so little, can thrive.

Your donations will:

1) Build a new cement school building for 200 children.
2) Ensure classrooms are properly shaded to create an optimal learning environment.
3) Create an outdoor sports area so children can participate in physical education activities.
4) Build a teacher’s area where teachers can gather.
5) Build a new modern parking lot.
6) Build a student lunch facility.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

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.

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’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.
