UNICEF - child poverty has increased in the Philippines in the last 3 years by over 200 percent.
Can you Help Jigsaw find more supporters for a secure future?
2023 is the year that marks 20 years of Jigsaw in the Philippines which is incredible. That is 20 years of Jigsaw sharing God’s love to children in most need such as children with disabilities and those exposed to and living on the streets in Manila. Through Jigsaw so many children's lives have been changed and saved through God's love physically, spiritually, socially and in so many ways.
We PRAISE and THANK GOD for all of you for the amazing way that you have made this happen and have been part of all we do for 20 years.
And the GOOD NEWS is that Jigsaw is ready and passionate for another 20 years of sharing God’s love with children and families living in extreme need and poverty in Metro Manila.
But the CHALLENGE is that with rising costs and an increase in the numbers of children in extreme poverty, Jigsaw is struggling and needs your help to find new supporters to keep the ministry going.
IN ADDITION Jigsaw would like to engage in more community education and advocacy particularly concerning the area of online child sexual abuse which has exploded in prevalence since the Covid pandemic and affects many of the children who come to Jigsaw.
So we need YOUR HELP to find more supporters so that Jigsaw can carry on its ministry now and for many years to come:
So the GOAL and VISION is to start 'Jigsaw's affordable giving campaign' to increase the number of Jigsaw supporters by 100 -150 all giving an affordable monthly gift of between £5 to £60 pounds per month.
If we could achieve this goal, it would mean that Jigsaw would be secure to continue all of its work and outreach as well as expand to reach the increasing numbers of children being pushed into extreme poverty with the terrible risk and suffering this brings.
Jigsaw’s affordable giving vision and campaign
Goal – 100 – 150 new supporters giving 5 to 60 pounds per month.
That seems a huge goal, but it is what we need, and God can do it through all of us. The GOOD NEWS is that God doesn’t give us more than we can do. Jigsaw has 10 supporting churches and over 400 supporters SO, if each church could aim to find 10 NEW Jigsaw supporters and each of us as supporters could aim to find 2 or 3 more people to support Jigsaw, we can reach our goal to enable and empower Jigsaw’s funding to be secure for another 20 years.
Actions - How can you help?
PLEASE JOIN US IN PRAYER:
That God will open the hearts of people to become new supporters of Jigsaw so that we can reach the target of 150 + new supporters.
