In 2018, you gave nearly $150,000 to double the size of EMI Uganda’s Construction Workshop! Thank you!!



Location: Uganda
Funding Needed: $150,000

The EMI Uganda Construction Workshop is a place where craftsmen are hired, trained, and discipled to glorify God with their lives—both in the trade and in their communities.

The Workshop has outgrown its current space, limiting capacity and preventing further growth in woodworking or metal fabrication. EMI has developed plans to expand the Workshop to more than 5 times the size of the current space.

New Covered Areas: 900 sm (9,690 ft2)
Construction Start: 2018 (phase 1)

These new wood and metal workshops will have large, open floor areas and will allow for the re-purposing of the current Workshop built from shipping containers.

Project Leadership Training

Location: MENA
Funding Needed: $10,000

Mobilize six local design professionals from EMI MENA to participate on international EMI projects. These opportunities for leadership growth and discipleship on cross-cultural mission shouldn't be missed.

Technical Software

Location: India
Funding Needed: $10,000

Build the capacity of EMI India with technical software licenses of Civil 3D and AutoCAD LT. EMI is committed to integrity with software use, so staff and intern growth means more software seats are needed for this team.

In 2017, you gave nearly $70,000 towards the launch of EMI South Africa in Cape Town! Thank you!!

Start Date: January, 2018
Language: Afrikaans +10 others
Funding Needed: $65,000

South Africa is at once a place well-resourced with design professionals, yet also a place of great need. The EMI South Africa team will have opportunities to engage both. Gerhard and Trudie Van der Merwe are actively preparing the way to start up EMI in their hometown of Cape Town. Your gifts to Growing Globally will support EMI's growth into this strategic location.
