The top priority for the Moravian Board of World Mission (BWM) in North America is building relationships with and supporting the mission efforts of our partner Unity Provinces (Costa Rica, Eastern West Indies, Guyana, Honduras, Nicaragua, Western Tanzania), Mission Provinces (Cuba, Labrador), and Mission Areas (Peru, Sierra Leone). We cannot accomplish this important task without generous support from individuals and congregations. As the method for funding our efforts continues to evolve, we are beginning to provide Mission Grants to help address specific needs and ministries as they are identified by our partners.
Over the last few years, nearly $100,000 has been gifted to begin and sustain important ministries such as:
- A photography business in Peru – Learn More!
- Theological scholarships for pastors in Honduras – Learn More!
- Building a science lab at the Moravian Kisanji Girls School in Tanzania
- Start up funding for a Bodega (small grocery store) on the grounds of the Ahuas Clinic in Honduras
A financial gift in support of our Mission Grant fund will help to make the ideas and dreams of our global partners a reality! Each year BWM receives numerous grant and project proposals from global partners. These are tremendous initiatives that just require some financial support to get off the ground. In some cases, a simple, relatively small, grant of start up money has been all that was needed to create a sustainable business which creates proceeds to support ongoing ministry. A gift today can make a huge impact long into the future!
