About Us

ABOUT LAHASH INTERNATIONAL

Across East Africa, voiceless and vulnerable people are struggling to find hope. “Lahash” is the Hebrew word for “whispered prayer” – a poignant reminder that God is answering the prayers of many lonely and forgotten children through the compassionate care of our global community.

CORE PROGRAMS

About Us - Child Sponsorship

CHILD SPONSORSHIP

Much more than a financial transaction, child sponsorship changes the lives of everyone involved. A monthly gift of $25 helps to provide holistic care for one child including nutritional support, education fees, medical care, and spiritual discipleship.

About Us - Rice & Beans Month

RICE & BEANS MONTH

Every March, our global community takes on the spiritual discipline of simplifying daily food choices and eating in solidarity with East African brothers and sisters. The money saved on food is then shared with our partners to improve the nutrition and health of vulnerable kids.

About Us - Stand with Students

STAND WITH STUDENTS

Access to education is too easily interrupted by rising school fees, fluctuating food costs, or medical emergencies. Funds raised through Stand With Students go directly toward educational needs, with the goal of seeing many students continue all the way through our Higher Education Program.

About Us - Servant Teams

SERVANT TEAMS

Before Servant Team Members travel from the U.S. to serve our East African partners, they are discipled and equipped through study, discussion, and hands-on engagement in vulnerable communities. This exciting short-term program develops diverse leaders to serve in local and global missions.
