Ryan Snyder, IDEAS – Uganda
Sustainability or Spiritual Life
The vision of IDEAS is to bring resources of personnel and materials to the people of Uganda to help them innovate and develop sustainable adaptable systems of economic growth and spiritual life.
My purpose is to demonstrate God’s love to people in poverty by delivering tangible assistance that aids in their development as individuals, communities and ultimately their country in sub-Saharan Africa.
Africa has the youngest and fastest growing population in the world with a great need for economic development to stabilize the region for the foreseeable future and to mentor and develop local Christian leaders as foundational building blocks of God’s purpose and light. With American resources we can help alleviate basic necessity struggles and provide the skills and personal development for the next generation of leaders throughout Uganda.
My long term goal is to sponsor three to five young Africans to get their Bachelor’s degree and set them up in leadership positions within their communities, and to develop a touch-and-go program with respect to clean water, information technology and solar power.
