For the past ten years, our work and ministry have been about Creating Ripples for the Kingdom of God in Myanmar/Burma. If there is anything we have realized in our ministry, it is that we cannot accomplish a task of this size alone. Now is the time for us to extend our reach and influence in the country and region.
The people of Myanmar have been denied education, resources and the basic human rights that we take for granted. For decades, these people have been under military rule and trapped by political oppression. These social injustices have enabled human trafficking, child labor, and the drug trade to thrive. Our experience in this area is that the catalyst for change is education.
Myanmar/Burma is currently at the start of a dynamic political and economic shift. We believe the time to act is now. Our plan is to equip young people with basic vocational skills, provide money management education, and facilitate instruction on business principles and ethics.
We will start with three training centers placed strategically in the cities of Yangon, Kalaymyo, and Mandalay. Each location will have a multipurpose facility at its center. The building will serve as a vocational training center with classrooms, dormitories, showers and toilet facilities. In addition, they will have a kitchen area with an outdoor pavilion for dining and outreaches to the community. We will also include a playground for children, giving them a safe place to play and be taught.
We believe that now is the best time to create spiritual and lasting Ripples. Your giving and partnership for these facilities help Create Ripples in Myanmar/Burma that will change the hearts and lives of a generation.
To establish these 3 centers we need a total of $300,000. This would do everything we need in each location. We would be able to train and house students, while impacting the community. This breaks down to $100,000 per center. The first step is land/building purchases and we will only buy or build as we have the funds to do so.
Triumphant Ministries International is excited to celebrate its 10th Anniversary! This banquet is a way for us to say THANK YOU to all who have made it possible for us to help so many around the globe. One September 29th we will reflect over the things we have experienced and accomplished over the past decade. We are also excited to share our plans for the future direction of the ministry. Those in attendance will have the opportunity to see video footage and photos of our efforts over sees. You will be able to see photos of the people whose lives YOU have impacted.
Part of this banquet will be an introduction to our newest ministry, sewing schools. Aung San Suu Kyi the General Secretary of the National League of Democracy in Myanmar & the 1991 Nobel Prize for Peace winner said, “We want to empower our people; we want to strengthen them; we want to provide them with the kind of qualifications that will enable them to build up their own country themselves.” This is the heart behind our sewing schools. We want to give young men and women the opportunity to provide for themselves and their families by teaching them life long skills.
We hope to see at our 10Th Anniversary Banquet. We have so much we want to share with our incredible donors and friends. Come hear the heart behind our mission and learn about our plans for the future. See you on September 29th at 5:30PM.
