ABOUT LAHASH INTERNATIONAL

Across East Africa, voiceless and vulnerable people are struggling to find hope. Lahash is the Hebrew word for whispered prayer – a 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

Child sponsorship changes the life of a child, and of the sponsor as well. A monthly gift of $30 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

During March/Lent, we simplify our daily food choices and eat in solidarity with our East African brothers and sisters. The money we save is then shared with our ministry partners to improve nutrition and food security for vulnerable kids.

About Us - Stand with Students

STAND WITH STUDENTS

Education is easily disrupted by rising school fees, fluctuating food costs, or health issues. Stand With Students exists to help kids overcome these obstacles, with the goal of seeing many of them continue all the way through the Higher Education Program.
