The Best Way to Fish

Fish pond construction at God's Institute for Transformation.

Give a man a fish, and you’ll feed him for a day.
Teach a man to fish, and you’ll feed him for a lifetime.
Empower a man to build and maintain a fishpond,
and you’ll feed the next generations by bringing fish to new places.

In many places we serve, Favor could “teach a man to fish,” but if there is no pond, no fishing line, no person trained to repair necessary tools, how will a trained man continue fishing?

Favor trains and equips many communities with more efficient agricultural production practices through our women’s empowerment program, which gives more financial independence to groups of women in rural villages to empower their families. Secondly, our own in-house agricultural projects teach vocational skills to youth coming to Jesus off the streets while producing local income generation for ministry and laying the experiential groundwork for a new generation of needed entrepreneurs.

Subsistence farming – investing and producing enough to feed one’s own family, but not in bulk to trade – is the staple supply of economic production currently. Hand labor and techniques in quality growing soil found in these regions produces enough to eat, but it takes most of one’s time and work to maintain, leaving little room for education or innovation.

Uganda and South Sudan need healthy, working farms that both produce and reflect, the Gospel-empowered virtues necessary to build healthy families and societies. Favor, as a leadership multiplication movement, produces the people and revitalized communities necessary for the organic growth of these essential microbusinesses all over the region, but we also directly invest in agricultural projects on our own land, to generate indigenous income for the Gospel work and to provide hands-on training opportunities to future leaders.

What You Can Do

You can support an economic empowerment project for any amount of money. These funds supply everything from tools, to seed and breeding animals, to training, to capital investments in business models. A single women’s empowerment program uses about $2,000 worth of capital per village, but the results are recurring for perpetuity for the women who work them. Larger visions and business plans are looking in the range of hundreds of thousands of dollars to change countless lives.

A Word from Favor

“When penitent, pleading, prevailing, persevering, persistent prayer takes priority and preeminence over pride, people pleasing, programs, preconceived ideas, problems, pulpits, and performances, then and only then…will My presence and power permeate this planet once again!!”
— Carole Ward

“The one who plants and the one who waters work together with the same purpose. And both will be rewarded for their own hard work.”

- The Apostle Paul, 1 Corinthians 3:8
