International Short-term Graduate Projects
To help victims of hunger and lack of basic needs overcome the tremendous forces that impoverish them, SIFAT trains church and community leaders to address the needs of the whole person–body, mind and soul.
Training is the beginning, but not the end. Those who come to learn need seed and tools before they can work. The Graduates’ Projects (GP) department of SIFAT answers this need. Graduates write proposals for start-up money to being their projects. SIFAT serves as a bridge between people in need and people who want to help, offering you an opportunity to work alongside our graduates and their communities. This is more than a handout — partner with the poor to help empower them to overcome the challenges of poverty. And we have found that when we work with others in need, they help us to overcome our own needs and our own poverty of spirit. We need each other.
Currently, we are focusing on SIFAT graduates who have proven their ability and their faithfulness in past projects. They need partners to help them with startup funds, prayer and moral support.
Please click on the projects below for more information. You can donate online to these projects by using the button provided on each profile, or you may donate by check made payable to SIFAT with the designation of the project number and name. If a donation is received after a project is fully funded, support will be given to another approved graduate project.
