Describe the need affecting the community.

People with lack of proper housing, lack of access to schools, lack of health services affordable to the poor. Churches with unfinished buildings, no resources to improve their teachings and social services. Not enough schools or school classrooms. Schools with no facilities and/or resources for better teaching techniques. Lack of places to teach job skills.

Better education for the children and having less drop outs every year. Better facilities in Schools and community centers. Local Churches active in at least one on-going program. Local mission teams participating in God's mission by themselves or partnering with UMVIM mission teams.
