The only way Lahash can truly maintain “Grassroots Partnership With Africa” is through the involvement of people like you. Meaningful engagement with the lives of vulnerable people across the globe invites transformation for all of us. See which of the following options resonate with you, and join us! You are welcome in our global community. Your involvement makes a difference.
The connection between a child and a sponsor is more than just a monetary transaction. It is a relationship with the power to change the lives of everyone involved. If you are interested in changing the life of a vulnerable child and allowing yourself to be changed in the process, we would love to introduce you to some amazing kids.
Prayer is a beautiful way to bear each other’s burdens and share each other’s joys, despite the distance between us. Each week, Lahash receives and sends out current prayer requests from our partners in East Africa. Join us and intercede when situations arise that impact individual kids or entire countries.
Every March, the Lahash community invites you and your family to connect more deeply with our East African friends by simplifying your diet for one month. As inexpensive ingredients fill our plates and shopping carts, we share the savings to improve nutrition for the kids in our Sponsorship Program. Through this simple act of solidarity, our love for the vulnerable and hungry becomes as tangible as a bowl of rice and beans.
You can help ensure that even the most vulnerable children have uninterrupted access to education, as well as the opportunity to pursue their dreams in university. Through Stand With Students, young adults are experiencing the life-changing empowerment of a solid education combined with spiritual mentorship. Their impact will be felt across East Africa!
Join us in developing the next generation of leaders in missions! Lahash’s Servant Team members are trained and equipped locally in Portland, then sent out globally to serve with and learn from our East African partners. Help support these future missional leaders, or become one yourself.
If you have a passion for serving East Africa’s most vulnerable children, join our growing community of staff and volunteers. We have multiple volunteer opportunities available at our Portland office, as well as ways you can plug in and serve from wherever you are. We are also looking for staff members to join us in the areas of administration, media, community development, finances, fundraising, advocacy, and program development.
