"Proclaim liberty throughout the land to all its inhabitants.

It shall be a Jubilee."

Leviticus 25:11

About Jubilee

The Jubilee Village Project is a grass roots, volunteer-based movement committed to serving the poor and ending world poverty through sustainable community transformation.

 

Centered in the loving ministry of Jesus, the vision of the Jubilee Village Project is to provide hope, opportunity and liberty to villages around the world to end extreme poverty and make disciples of Jesus.

 

The Jubilee Village Project collaborates with villages in rural western Kenya to build capacities and deploy sustainable solutions to meet the physical, social, economic and spiritual needs of our global brothers and sisters.

 

It is the strategic goal of the Jubilee Village Project to support villages in fully achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG's).

Approach

The Jubilee Village Project is powered by volunteers and operates on three Ministry Principles:

 

  • People-to-People Relationships

  • Holistic Solutions

  • Servant Leadership

 

In 2016, the Project adopted a new approach in our expansion to partner with new leaders in new villages: the 3S Approach:

 

Step 1) Start Small

Step 2) Scale Slow

Step 3) Seek Sustainability

 

This simple approach helps avoid starting with big programs with big risk (the American way!), and helps guide the Project in launching and growing programs and leaders in a step-by-step fashion, gaining experience and building leadership capacity along the way.

FAITH Gardens

FAITH = Food Always In The Home

Seasonal famine and malnutrition are common problems among many families in African rural villages.  Extended dry seasons with no rains result in low production or total loss.  Many families are forced to subsist on a single meal a day.

 

The FAITH Gardens program trains villagers in permaculture gardening techniques to produce the maximum amount of produce in a 12.5 f00t x 25 foot garden.  FAITH Gardens utilize a single bucket drip irrigation system and emphasizes growing a standard set of high-nutrition vegetables and fruits using good gardening practices.

emPOWERing LIFE

Most homes in rural Kenya are still "off the grid".  95% of households use kerosene or paraffin as their primary lighting energy sources.  Both emit dangerous fumes causing respiratory disease and are a major cause of house fires.

 

The emPOWERing LIFE program allows villagers to purchase solar lanterns (with solar charging panel) through 8-week microloans ($24) as part of 6-10 member savings groups.  These solar lanterns provide 6-8 hours of daily household lighting and provide signficant economic, productivity and health benefits.

Walk For Water

We Walk So They Don't Have To

Around the world, millions of families lack access to safe and clean water.  Water borne diseases are the largest cause of sickness and death in the developing world

 

Walk For Water is a 3-mile walk to promote awareness and raise funds to bring accessible and safe water to rural villages in western Kenya.  During the Walk, participants carry a 5-gallon bucket of water to experience the daily burden women and children face every day in fetching and carrying water.  All monies raised through the Walk For Water are used for Community Safe Water projects in villages in western Kenya.

Creation Care Competition

Engaging Students in Caring for Creation

Destruction of forests and wetlands in western Kenya is a critical environmental challenge.  97% of households in the area use firewood or charcoal for cooking and heating. Increased demands for farm lands and residential lands have accelerated deforestation. 

 

Through the Creation Care Competition, JVP partners with village schools to teach students about God's concern for His Creation, educate students about deforestation, soil erosion and climate change, and engage students in environmental stewardship, tree planting and tree care.  Students plant and care for tree seedlings including grevillea, moringa, grafter mango, paw paw and sweet orange.  The 2 winning schools of this 1-year competition receive a monetary grant award for their school.

Community Safe Water

Bringing Safe Water Near Every Home

In many villages in sub-Saharan Africa, most families lack access to safe water and fetch water from ponds and creeks that carry many water-borne diseases.  The daily burden of water collection falls mainly on the women and children of the village.  Some villagers walk up to five miles a day over difficult terrain to fetch water up to three times a day.

 

The Community Safe Water program mobilizes villagers to identify and implement sustainable safer water solutions, ranging from simple solar disinfection (SODIS) solutions to complex hub-and-spoke community safe water systems.
