Oil Palms for Hope in the Congo

This project seeks to raise $10,290 help 140 families in the Democratic Republic of the Congo by providing them with oil palm farms.

Goal: $10,290

About this Mission Project

Decades ago, the Democratic Republic of the Congo was a leading producer of oil palms. But when the palm oil factories closed, opportunities for employment dried up. Today’s average income for a family in the Congo is $300 per year.

This project will provide families with enough funds to buy and then farm over an acre of land with oil palms. The income generated from the sale of palm oil will give them an additional $300 per year. With the extra money, the families will have access to better health care, improved education and other economic opportunities. In turn, they will lift up other families in their communities.

Mission Project Specifics

This project seeks to raise $10,290 help 140 families in the Democratic Republic of the Congo by providing them with oil palm farms.

This project will be managed by missionary Wayne Niles in the Congo. It is anticipated that this project will greatly increase each family’s annual income, which will give them more economic stability and access to better medical care and education for their children.

Families with the opportunity to grow their own palm oil plants will be better positioned to care for the needs of their families. Palm oil is naturally rich in beta-carotene and is used for cooking.
