Sweet Summer 17: Week 1, Day 3
Before being empowered by our Economic Development Program, our members would earn about $0.80 to $0.90 for a full day of hard manual labor — less than half the International Poverty Line, according to the World Bank. Sweet Sleep president, Madelene Metcalf, talks about what it’s like to live on a dollar a day.
Ways To Give:
$1,500 – Start a cooperative business for 10 families
$500 – Start a savings and loan program
$150 – Help one family join a cooperative business
$100 – Provide Bibles for an entire cooperative business group
Help us start seven more cooperative businesses this year, providing 70 families and 350 children with economic stability and a hope for the future.
