We are building sustainable communities, thriving cooperative businesses, and essential savings groups in areas most in need of guidance, mentorship, and love. Join us as we work to build sustainable infrastructures of love, support, and joy around the world!
Building community. Breaking the cycle of poverty.
For 20 years, your prayers and support have allowed us to share God’s love and hope in Christ to the world’s most vulnerable children and their families, and we’ve seen incredible resilience and ingenuity — among our partners, our beneficiaries, and among you, our champions. We wouldn’t be here without you.
Your support provides Christ-centered business training and startup capital to develop and nurture these local businesses. In doing so, individuals are empowered to generate sustainable income that helps them afford food, clothing, medical care, and school fees for their families.
In 20 years, we have:
What’s a CO•OP?
A CO•OP unites a group of individuals that share common economic, social, and spiritual aspirations through jointly owned, local enterprises and savings groups.
A CO•OP is:
$3500 – Sponsors One CO•OP
What your generosity will do:
- A year of training, counselling & discipleship by our indigenous team
- Startup capital for a group business
- Seed fund for a microfinance savings group
- Training materials and savings and loan resources
Our vision for 2023 is to launch 40 new CO•OPs.
Whether you sponsor a CO•OP in honor of someone you love, or become a monthly donor, your generosity will break the cycle of poverty. Permanently.
When you invest in a CO•OP, your generosity is multiplied by the women you empower! A multi-year study shows that CO•OP group businesses yield 115% annual capital growth, and savings groups yield 141% ROI after one year.
In 2021 Margaret was identified for a piggery CO•OP where she received training, counseling, and discipleship. She now has hope anchored in Christ and has gained the tools she needs to lead and teach a life of morality and self-worth. Margaret now runs a small business raising tree seedlings and after her first order of $1100 was able to purchase a small plot of land to grow her business.
Margaret is thankful for the journey and support from Sweet Sleep, and she gives back the glory to God for the love and blessings bestowed upon her family and her.
“One of the proudest accomplishments in my life was accepting Jesus Christ as my savior,” said Nighty Atoo.
As a member of a CO•OP, Nighty received scripture-based counseling and ongoing discipleship. Joyfully, she gave her life to Christ! She traded selling local brew for rearing goats and selling vegetables for her daily income. Nighty can pay her medical bills and her health has improved. And through her spiritual growth, she has found community and acceptance within her CO•OP.
Pamela’s journey of personal and professional growth led her to taking a loan to produce a Gospel album! She wants her debut album, “Jesus I Give My Life To You” to help youth lead a moral life and encourage men and women on their faith journey.
Pamela prides herself in sharing Jesus’ promise of hope and fullness. Instead of being stigmatized, this music icon is adored by many whose lives have been significantly impacted with her Gospel, all because your generosity gave her the chance.
Our efforts are working! As the Ugandan team continues to work in the most vulnerable communities, women like Teddy have sought CO•OP membership to find hope for their families.
“A huge thank you to Sweet Sleep for the financial empowerment, spiritual nourishment, and physical support that has caused a positive transformation in our lives.”
