Community Outreach/Economic Development

Income Generating Projects

BTC focuses on grass roots efforts to create income for struggling families. BTC has helped widow groups, AIDS patients, rural villagers and even non-profits in Africa to plan economic efforts which directly improve family income.

In most cases the organization provides planning support and seed capital to get projects moving.

Examples include:

  • Jewelry making
  • A variety of agricultural projects (goats, chickens, mushroom production, etc).

Watumishi

We use the Watumishi network of adults and students to sell crafts produced in Africa.

Micro-finance and Grants

BTC also offers small grants and loans to many partners in Africa. These resources are used to start small business efforts which are intended to help groups become more economically self-sufficient. Usually these monies support craft and agricultural efforts.
