Many people all over the world dream of coming to America the land of freedom and opportunity. However few of these people are in the least prepared for the rigors of life they encounter on landing in the United States. Immigrants from Africa quickly realize that the social structures like communal associations that help support the day to day life where they come from are non-existent. Those who are lucky to have family to welcome them are hit with the realization that their relatives are caught in the day to day battle of chasing the dollar to survive and support themselves to have any time to take them by the hand in this new found land. The culture shock is confounding, the challenges enormous and many are left confused, frustrated and in a state of despair.
Vitendo Mission Team is excited to share with you a wonderful mission’s trip that will take place this summer. We would like to invite you to participate in this mission’s project. You may want to become a prayer partner or financial partner, or possibly both. Any money you may contribute goes toward reducing cost of travel and medical supplies.

In response to current famine situation in the horn of Africa, Vitendo 4 Africa is calling people of goodwill to contribute towards “Water Rig Project for Africa”“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime”. As we provide food to the hungry, providing a lasting solution is what we envision here at Vitendo 4 Africa. With water Rig, we will provide enough water for household use and for irrigation. Farmers will grow enough to feed their familes and sell the surplus in the market. Just by creating some little income many kids will will go back to school. These kids will apply the skills they learn in school in the farm and hence creating more economic growth in their own villages. Vitendo4africa believes if you help them buy a water rig, you are not only assisting to drill water but you are also assisting to transform a community, safe lives and make a difference in the whole world. Just like a butterfly can change the direction of the wind, “butterfly effect”. Your $10 today can change the world in a big way. Combination mud/air hammer water drilling rigs, depending on the drilling depth, borehole size, and the size air compressor used can easily cost over $100,000.00 /USD Your $10 DONATION may be the best and memorable gift you could ever give.
