Until the year 2000, the Yurilim Church could only care for the homeless young people of Kumasi, Ghana by letting them sleep on the dirt floor if the timber church building.
Imagine the contrast with the situation today. Two vocational training centres are home to over 50 young women who are receiving life changing skills. Over 200 girls have already graduated A primary school educates 150 children from shanty towns. Over 200 people are receiving business development loans. The projects are supported by two farms that have been stocked with thousands of fruit trees and many animals, providing income to subsidise training costs. An agricultural contracting business provides additional income.
