Upcoming Mission Needs Your Help

Help support Ascovime’s major extended health and education mission from August 27th – August 31st when they will be traveling to Tiko, Cameroon and spending 5 days providing free healthcare and distributing school supplies to over 3000 kids and 200 teachers!  We all know how hard teachers work, but imagine if you don’t have the supplies to teach.  This is a large humanitarian mission under the looming presence of Mt. Cameroon that needs your help to provide these kids and teachers with the supplies they need for the upcoming school year, please donate here if you can.

It’s the start of a new school year!

And the perfect time to be thinking about our newest program, Project Education. As many of us gear up for another year of High School, College, Grad School or prepare our children for a new year of learning, most of us think of school as a necessary evil. Few consider it a luxury, but to a child in Africa, getting a proper education is often too much to hope for. This is something we are working to change and you can help! Along with better education comes better opportunities for these kids and not just in the form of a higher paying job, it means better opportunities for their whole village and ultimately, their whole country. Statistics show that investing in education is the key to economic development and a stable economy leads to a higher quality of life. So next time you are out shopping for books, pencils and calculators, please consider sponsoring a child so that they too can have the education that they deserve.
