As the name suggests, Firm Lifeline Ministries primary aim is to support the weakest parts of society to build up firm lifelines. This is mainly achieved by ensuring holistic education in order to reduce poverty. In all our ministries we follow our Lord Jesus Christ and use his power and love to spread humanity.
A brief History
Firm Lifeline Ministries was established in October 2009 by Reverend Daniel Ayembilla, who since then touched the lives of many people through our organization. He has travelled wide and made a lot of friends in different countries like Germany, Poland, USA, the Netherlands or the United Kingdom. The ministry really benefits from these connections. Many of them have grown to big partnerships and opened the doors for intercultural exchange, which indeed has really widened the horizon and possibilities of our projects. Volunteers from these countries contribute their skills while learning a lot about different cultures and spreading this knowledge in their home country, creating an awareness of our local issues. Supported strongly by his sons and his wife Reverend Elizabeth Ayembilla, the holder of FLM made his vision of creating firm lifelines reality. Seated in Jirapa in the Upper West Region, Firm Lifeline Ministries mainly concentrates on the northern and underprivileged Part of Ghana. We can proudly say, that our ministries has already claimed some major achievements like the establishment of an Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVC) boarding center that is running perfectly well and is still growing.
Our objectives – Our own way
To hit our targets we have already established many different projects and are still building up more long-term programs to focus on sustainable support. This is very important to us since we want to accompany our people until we can be sure we provided them everything they need for a livelihood with fewer worries. All those projects have the same objective: Give vulnerable parts of the society like orphans, widows and people suffering from long-term diseases the skills and the confidence to build up their own firm lifelines. To do so, our projects include not only the promotion of basic school education, but teaching values and practical skills to equip people with all the abilities they need to build up a self-determined life.
Sources of Funding
As mentioned above, the first and main part of our resources is gained by close partnerships with organizations abroad. Big friendships distinguish these cooperations and let us gain much more than money: knowledge, inter-cultural exchange and various views and opinions enrich our work and projects strongly. Some of these Partners are World Vision international, Faith in Action from the USA, Giving Hope And Nurturing Abroad and the german Kinderhilfe Westafrika. The last one is a very deep connection indeed, for they are our partner organization for the volunteers from Germany that join our projects every year.
Secondly, we benefit from some generous philanthropists who donate a large amount of money and share our visions and ways of supporting the poor.
The last component of our resources are various self-generated funds.
Those three elements ensure the ability to work of our running long-term projects. They succesfully avoid that possible financial issues cut wholes in our chain of support.
