The River of Life Evangelical Church (ROLEC) in Malawi is the newest partner of Bread and Water for Africa®. ROLEC serves a targeted population of more than 2,500 households through a wide variety of programs and services to include improving agricultural practices, water collecting and irrigation, economic security and educational support to orphans and vulnerable children

PROGRAM BENEFICIARIES/HIGHLIGHTS

Bread and Water for Africa® began our partnership with ROLEC in 2015 working together to offer a six-month skills training project for 20 vulnerable young adults ages 18 to 22, providing them with vocational training in trades such as bricklaying, carpentry, electrical engineering and clothes tailoring. In 2016, we continued our partnership with ROLEC by digging a well providing a safe water source for thousands of residents of a rural village. 

CURRENT NEEDS

ROLEC’s current need is to have the resources necessary to be able to assist even more of the country’s residents in need as they seek to build a better life for themselves and their families.
