Summer 2018 Overview

How do we inspire and compel our young people today to give everything they have so that others may know His love?

They have to walk in the shoes of our brothers and sisters in need around the world.

This is the place that gives youth the opportunity to be immersed in developing countries without leaving the country. It is a place that has a Global Village and an Urban Slum with experiences to go along with that simulate what it is like for our brothers and sisters around the world.

The remarkable thing is this – students who come for the experiences leave with training. Our SIFAT graduates train youth and adults of all ages about appropriate technologies to work towards solutions in the areas of struggle in developing countries. The same training that our graduates receive – that is what our visitors get when they come.

“I live in a slum, all my water is dirty. What do I do?”
Students experience this.
They are then taught various water purification technologies that can be done anywhere.

“I live in a rural village and my access to nutrition is limited. What do I do?”
Students experience this.
They are then taught various ways to incorporate gardening, farming and potent leaf powders into their diets.

“I spend most of my day gathering firewood to keep the fires burning for food and warmth.” What do I do?
Students experience this.
They are then taught different stove technologies that are more efficient and safer.

These are just a few of the examples of the experiences as well as the training that takes place on our campus and in our summer learn & serve experience.

There is no place like the Galilee Campus of SIFAT that does what we do.
