Alongside the 5 F’s team, Jon has been able to partner with several community members and start them in business. Jon serves in an advisory capacity and loves every minute he can work alongside these promising young men.
Our sellers took a business training the 5 F’s offered and have continued to meet and are now selling solar lights. The lights can also charge a basic cell phone.
In Awi country, 6% of people have access to electricity, so with one light, a family’s house can be “wired” with sustainable, renewable power. It changes the family’s ability to read, study or work into the evening.
All four sellers are learning and teaching the many analogies light can be used for…
After selling, they train the farmers as to how to properly use and care for the solar lights.
So many opportunities are opened up through this business.
I realize this is lacking many key details, but we are encouraged by open doors. Please keep praying. :) Look for our next newsletter for further explanation.
And praise God, our project is approved! Thanks for all who prayed!
This is Easter week, please pray with us for a true celebration of the holiday and many chances to celebrate with our neighbors.
