See the video below for an update on the work going on in Egbe, Nigeria. The school project is underway for the 152 children in our school.

#Giving Tuesday is today. Help us reach our goal of $16,500.

We have a gracious donor that is matching all gifts up to $16,500. Visit our school project donation page at https://donorsee.com/school to help us reach our goal so we can finish building our school.

Over a year ago a C.A.R.E. supporter introduced me to DonorSee. As soon as I heard the story of the founder, Gret Glyer, and why he started the ministry, I was on board. I am including a beautiful video about DonorSee but also want to share Gret’s story. 


Gret lived in the U.S. working a job that left him feeling unfulfilled. He wanted to make a difference and leave a legacy so he made a brave move to Malawi. Gret discovered that the people of Malawi were in need of small things like straw for a roof or a uniform to go to school. Because of the value of the U.S. dollar in Malawi he could change someone’s life situation for as little as $20.


Gret started videoing the needs and sending the videos to people he knew asking for donations. He would send the donors a video of the recipient receiving the gift. In the year Gret was there he raised enough money to build a school that now educates over 300 girls. He contributed the outpouring of support to the videos he sent for the “donors to see”. Once back in the U.S. he started DonorSee with the purpose of connecting donors with worldwide ministries working with people in need.

It has been an amazing partnership with DonorSee. We have raised over $53,000 to date for C.A.R.E. Africa. Many of you reading this blog have contributed to that number. 


C.A.R.E. Africa is so grateful for this platform and we love the relationship it builds with donors in allowing them to see their gift at work. 


We were excited to enter into year 2022 with DonorSee for our large school building project. We had hoped to start construction in February but still needed significant support to begin the first phase of construction. Click on the video below to see how you can help with Phase 1 in Egbe, Nigeria and join this beautiful journey we are on.

Thank you so much to everyone that donated and shared our school building project to your friends and family on #GivingTuesday. We were able to raise $6,360 plus the $2,000 match from Jeff Maine at Proudly for a grand total of $8,360 of the $25,000 needed for our Phase 1 of the project. Thank you Thank you Thank you!!

We cannot be the hands and feet of Jesus without amazing donors ready to support us! Thank you!

10.5 million children in Nigeria are not in school per Unicef statistics. This is the highest population of out of school children in the world. Help us build a school in Egbe, Nigeria so our 78 vulnerable children can go to school in a safe and secure environment.

We currently rent a space and have outgrown it. 152 children attend our school and 78 of these children are on scholarships. We want each child to receive a quality education and in order to do that, we feel the child to teacher ratio needs to be low. We pride ourselves in the fact that our teacher to child ratio is 15 pupils per class. This means we cannot take as many children as we would like and so we have a waiting list of children begging to get an education. With the new school we will have more classrooms and can take more children.

We have the land we just need the buildings. The total building project cost is $250,000 of which Phase 1 is $25,000. This will allow us to start clearing the land, building the wall and digging the footers. Donate any amount to help us educate more children in Egbe, Nigeria! Click DONATE

Today is my Birthday! Only $1,540 more needed to make my birthday wish come true! Help Pastor Alabi’s family move into his new home! https://donorsee.com/project/11672

Would you please consider making a difference in this family’s life by helping purchase windows, doors, cement work and a bore hole so they can move into their new home.

From Canada to the U.S. to Egbe…..here a some beautiful pictures to illustrate what has been going on at C.A.R.E. Africa! Enjoy!

At C.A.R.E. Africa we try to reach out to the community monthly to support other ministries to encourage them. We recently visited a ministry in Jos, Nigeria and fell in love with the work they are doing. Meet Bibi, a teacher that was tired of seeing the children in Jebu sitting around with nothing to do. They had no money for school fees so she brought the school to them. The children come everyday now to learn to read and write but have to sit outside in the hot sun. Recently there has been attacks on their village and the need for a shelter is even more important.

Bibi needs a building for these children and has been raising funds all by herself. Help her buy the block, wood and roofing materials needed to finish her building for the children of Jebu Miango in Nigeria. Any amount will help towards the $500 needed. You can donate at https://donorsee.com/project/10366
