About Our Partners

Fiangonan’i Jesoa Kristy eto Madagasikara (FJKM)

Serving in partnership with the Church of Jesus Christ in Madagascar (FJKM), Dan and Elizabeth work to improve the lives of the Malagasy people. Elizabeth trains village health workers, helps communities develop safe drinking water sources and educates church leaders and youth about AIDS prevention. Dan has helped the FJKM develop an extensive fruit tree program that includes a fruit tree nursery and extension work with farmers. He also does environmental education, helping people live in harmony with God’s creation. Dan helps pastoral students grow fruits and vegetables. They will use these skills to help their community and families to achieve improved food security and nutrition. The Turks say that meeting needs in Christ’s name demonstrates how much God loves them.

The Impact

As part of Elizabeth’s program, more than 150 community health volunteers from rural areas are receiving training in health education techniques and basic health messages. Dan’s program helps communities in improving food security and nutrition.

The Need

The Outreach Foundation is seeking gifts totaling $10,000 for support funds.
