Let’s Transform the Lives of 50 African Entrepreneurs


Each week, we receive many inquiries to bring BE to a struggling entrepreneur in Africa, Asia, India, the Caribbean, a church or community. There is no lack of students or desire to know Christ Jesus through business. But there is a lack of resources to launch programs in countries like Liberia or expand in others. It is with this in mind that the International Department of Nehemiah Project has launched a Sustainable Mission crowdfunding project to raise $20,000 to help 50 African entrepreneurs receive the Biblical Entrepreneurship program.

The World Bank and other agencies estimate that up to 50% of the sub-Saharan population live on less than $1.90 per day with many surviving on less than $1.25 per day. The current aid programs and subsidized solutions have proven to hurt local economies and create dependency, while perpetuating the myth that emerging countries are helpless and cannot succeed on their own. We believe that people have the internal ability and capacity to overcome poverty.

Nehemiah’s solutions stop the cycle of poverty by:

  • Supporting new innovative ideas
  • Creating local industries
  • Helping people stand on their own
  • Providing sustainable solutions that can be localized
  • Providing direct access to investors for entrepreneurs

Join the movement, click here to give today and help us train 50 African entrepreneurs!

Here are 3 ways you can participate:

  1. Go to www.youcaring.com/beafrica and donate to give the gift of business. Any amount makes a difference.
  2. Like and share our page on your social media page. Encourage your friends and colleagues to participate in this important opportunity to directly affect the life of an entrepreneur.
  3. Pray for this effort and that the resources will be made available
