Blessed To Be A Blessing is a non-profit inter-denominational Christian organization that expresses God’s love in a practical way to the poor and neglected in the developing world. We do this by investing in training, facilitating short-term missions, and engaging in empowering initiatives that transform communities.
Our mandate is to demonstrate the love of God with our hands by focusing mainly on the poor in the developing world. We deliberately invest in initiatives that reverse the cycle of poverty: empowering people with skills and tools that enable them to be self-productive and in the process restore their dignity and eventually their place in society.
BTBAB is the practical arm of Healing Waters set up as a practical response to the needs of the poor & neglected in the developing world. It does this in 4 ways:
- Mobilising ordinary people to go on a short-term mission trip (ToolBox);
- Identifying “the one face” in the crowd crippled by poverty and pulling that person out of poverty by sponsoring their education (Ana Claudia Initiative);
- By reversing the cycle of poverty at community level by investing in projects makes a community self-sufficient (Overseas Community Transformation, or OCT)
- And by equipping & preparing young people with faith-based life skills on the Gap Year Internship (GYI)
