One of the ways that Purposeful Africa is hoping to make a positive impact throughout West Africa is to expose specific needs to people on board our ship who are traveling with us who in turn can provide direct methods for taking care of those needs. One effective way for this to take place is through the use of micro-loans.

As an example of how successful this type of program can be, we found a great example of this happening in Liberia (a country we are scheduled to visit in the fall of 2010). Please visit the Business as Mission Network Website and read the great article entitled “Small-Small Things Make a Big Difference.”

This is just an example of many ways that those people who journey with us to West Africa will be able to make an impact on the poverty that ensnares the multitudes living there. If you are interested in joining Purposeful Africa in the fall of 2010 and being exposed to the many needs there, please feel free to email our founder, Rhonda Sand at Rhonda@PurposefulAfrica.org.
