We would like to take a moment to say thank you from our, board members, advisory board members, headquarter staff, regional and country directors, trainers, coaches, and volunteers. It is one that will stand out amongst years to come, however, together with our network of clients, donors, strategic partners, volunteers, staff, and board members, we have turned these difficult trials into our own achievements. We appreciate your prayers, support, loyalty, and engagement and attribute our strides to you. Our inspiring web of advocates has also encouraged us to withhold our dedication to our core values: unconditional love, faith, entrepreneurship, excellence, focus, wisdom, and truth and reach towards our mission to build Kingdom businesses globally.

Along with these developments, we had the pleasure to witness several impact stories. Nina Mutegi represented Kenya and returned home as our 2020 International Business Plan Competition champion. Nina’s Mirema School provides an inclusive learning environment that addresses the physical, social, emotional, and spiritual needs of pupils by offering holistic education that produces empowered individuals. The school started in 1998 with only three students but has flourished into a Christ-filled environment with over 1,200 students. She, together with our very own Frank Kitonga, who recently became 2020 Trainer of the Year, helped Kenya win the 2020 Africa and International Business Plan Competition Award, and the 2020 Impact E-Community Center Award. They even helped finance two local Kenyan entrepreneurs through the Nehemiah Investment Fund with a total capital of $65K

Because of YOU, we were able to discover and promote impact stories like this. Individuals and communities now have hope, jobs, sustainable businesses, and a program that enables them to develop locally sustainable solutions to enhance their local economy and provide for their own social needs. We could not have done it without you and we look forward to creating more impact stories in 2021. Again thank you, thank you, and THANK YOU! Let’s make 2021 even better!
