Each year at Overflow, we collect an offering to help others in need. At the past six Overflow events (2011-2016), with your generous donations we have raised over $283,000 for the Life Campaign. This money built a water well in Champheta, Zambia, and has fed thousands of kids as part of a school feeding program in Bangladesh for five years in a row!
This year at Overflow, we are excited about again partnering with ERDO (Emergency Relief and Development Overseas), the on the ground project coordinators of the Life Campaign.
BANGLADESH – FOOD AID
ERDO, in conjunction with their partner Talitha Koumi (Pentecostal Assemblies of Bangladesh), is feeding pre-school and primary school aged children in Bangladesh. They help up to 6,900 pre-school aged children daily. Meals are provided six days a week and include breakfast (handmade bread and an egg or banana) and lunch (rice, lentils, meat or eggs, fresh vegetables, potatoes, and milk).
ERDO, in conjunction with their relationship with the Canadian Foodgrains Bank, is able to receive matched funding on approved food projects through the Canadian Government, which makes this all possible. Therefore, for approximately $500, we are able to feed an entire school of children (approximately 35-50 students) for one year!
This year our goal is to again focus on this need in Bangladesh. We want to help feed children in this country through the ERDO pre-school feeding program. We have pinpointed 110 schools in Bangladesh to partner with, and it costs approximately $500 to sponsor a school.
Would you and your youth group consider sponsoring a school? It is our hope that from now until Overflow in May, youth groups will pledge sponsorship for a school (or two!) so that we can sponsor all 110 schools. Groups can raise the money up until the Overflow weekend. Pledge money should be submitted by the Overflow weekend. We will continue to update you on how many schools are left to be sponsored as we approach the event. At Overflow, we will reveal the current standings, and an offering will be collected on the Saturday night to raise the amount still needed!
You can submit your pledge by emailing us (firstname.lastname@example.org) or on the registration form when you register your group!
