Sponsor Our Children’s Ministry (Love Covers)
In 2006, FRMA teamed up with Yvonne Kennedy of Fashioned Forward Ministries (FFM) to provide clothing and other necessities for the night commuter kids in Northern Uganda. A program called Love Covers was born out of this partnership, in which FRMA identifies schools where poverty has a devastating impact on the number of who complete school. These children are given backpacks are filled with:
- A Blanket
- A Mosquito Net
- A School Uniform
- A Bright Red “Love Covers Africa” T-shirt
- School Supplies
- Various Toiletries
After the initial teaming of FRMA and FFM, both ministries agreed to a joint ministry effort to establish and run a tailoring school. Students are taught basic tailoring skills, and in the process, each student sews 200 pieces of school uniforms to support Love Covers. In return for successfully completing the tailoring school program, they get to take their machine home; allowing for the prospect of a home-based business.
To date, over 5,000 children from Uganda and Sudan have received Love Covers packs. FRMA brings volunteers into the schools that Love Covers supports for a three day Vacation Bible School (VBS) program and on the last day of the program each child receives a backpack filled with school and personal supplies.
Give an automatic monthly or one-time gift to our children’s ministry Love Covers.
