Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

iReachAfrica is dedicated to bringing the people of Mozambique to Christ through church planting, public health initiatives, education programs, agricultural development and social advancements. We are charting a new course out of poverty into prosperity, out of sickness into health, out of darkness into light.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Milk & Nutrition Center

The Nutrition Program cares for hundreds of children, providing milk, weaning food, primary care and love to vulnerable children and orphans. Social support includes locating caregivers, finding homes and families for the orphans, home visits and hospital visits is also a focus. We build basic homes for some of these families and work closely with local government officials and other authorities for referrals and coordination of care. One of our primary objectives in this program is to save vulnerable lives. Sadly, the most frequent cause of death among newborns is starvation. Infants are always the most vulnerable. They are birthed in appalling conditions: on dirt floors in mud or thatched huts, under trees in the forest or in vast corn-fields. Their mothers are their only source of milk, but many moms die, leaving the infants with no other means of sustenance. The Nutrition Program provides the adopting caregivers with milk, primary care, training and support – (and most importantly, hope).

Population(s) Served
Infants to preschool (under age 5)
Families

The Health Program works side by side with the Nutrition Program to provide essential care to both the babies and their care-givers. The caregivers bring in their babies every one to two weeks for their supply of powdered formula or milk, and a physical assessment. We evaluate their health and overall well-being and treat what episodic malidies we can. Patients with serious illnesses are referred to the hospital in town. We often escort the patients to the hospital and advocate for the patients to receive necessary tests and treatments. If they are admitted, we provide bed-side support. Once discharged, we do home-visits to provide ongoing support, counsel, training and encouragement to the patients, their families and their local communities.

Population(s) Served
Females

This program is a safe place for children to have fun and grow socially. We teach healthy sportsmanship, teamwork, cooperation, conflict resolution, good citizenship, and Christian values. Village children ages 3 to 18 come and participate in singing, games, free play, Bible stories, memory verses, and prayer! We also provide a de-worming program every 4-6 months. This irradicates intestinal parasites and promotes better nutrition, health and well-being.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth (0-19 years)

In 1999 we established several new church fellowships in the southern parts of Mozambique. As the ministry grew we began to move towards the central, inland region.

Population(s) Served
Adults

Our prison ministry – which some of our volunteers affectionately call “discipleship training school” – aims to transform the lives of inmates in prison by sharing God's goodness and helping them to learn about their purpose and identity in Christ. We provide training on family values, behavior changes, social values, and character development.

Population(s) Served
Adults

Leaders and pastors are eager for training and equipping. This training focused on clear, Biblical teaching with a focus on integrity, morality, accountability, Biblical authority, servant leadership, team building, conflict resolution and healthy, covenant marriage and family teaching, etc.

Population(s) Served
Adults

The Children's Education Center was established to provide quality childhood Christian education in an underprivileged region. We address the development of the whole child while inspiring creativity, hope, love and knowledge. The principle focuses of the Center and staff are on academics, spiritual growth, health and nutrition, as well as a child's social and emotional development.

Charting impact

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

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

iReachAfrica is committed to supporting the continual growth of established programs in Mozambique, while launching new ones. The development of our organizational structure and current ministries are fundamentally based on the vision, calling and proven fruitfulness of our board, staff and local workers. The cumulative vision is entrenched in the gospel of Jesus Christ and our calling as His disciples. This organization is expressively hinged on the call to declare His Name, express His love and advance His kingdom. We aim to develop our headquarters to effectively handle administration, recruitment and fundraising to support the ministries in Mozambique and beyond.

Proper administration to support the vision and values is critical. Therefore, we seek out wise counsel through time tested “best practices" and expert counsel. Legal, financial, business and spiritual counsel and accountability guides every step. We have a strong board and staff of Christian professionals who meet regularly to review our progress. They also travel to Mozambique to audit the programs and meet with the staff. We also seek out-side advice from successful not-for-profit organizations.

Our organization provides our staff with the support necessary for personal and programmatic growth, such as professional and spiritual training and counseling. This is accomplished both on site and at international conferences, seminars and training programs. In an effort to grow in our effectiveness, we collaborate with other organizations who share our vision. As the vision and opportunities to expand grow, so must our organizational structure.

We have established reporting systems to monitor and evaluate our staff and activities. The board of directors meets quarterly to review these reports. They also visit our programs in Mozambique to audit, troubleshoot and encourage the staff.

We provide basic nutritional care to orphaned infants, toddlers and handicapped children. Over the last ten years we have provided nutritional aid and primary medical care for over 7,000 orphaned babies. The hygiene and health programs prevent illnesses and improve community well being in the surrounding villages. Our preschool and kindergarten programs prepare students for success in elementary school and beyond, both educationally and spiritually. We also are assisting in the development of a Christian high school, with a current enrollment of 210 youth. Our team regularly goes into the local prison to share the love of Jesus with the inmates. Twenty-two thriving churches have been planted in central and southern Mozambique. Through seminars and conferences we equip pastors and senior church leaders with Biblical teaching and leadership guidance. We recently acquired a Christian Vocational Training Center, which partners vocational training with a two-year discipleship school. We now want to expand these programs and initiatives into more regions.
