LEARN MORE: Help brewers turn their lives around…180 degrees!

Over the past four years, Empowering Lives International has helped 882 men and women change their course in life 180 degrees – turning away from the darkness of illicit alcohol brewing and into the light of Jesus through education that promotes healthy small businesses. You can be a part of this exciting movement of change that is happening in Kenya today.

 

The problem:

At first glance, brewing alcohol may be seen as an opportunity for a consistent income. But there are numerous pitfalls to the lifestyle. Home brewing is illegal and there is a constant fear of police raids. When a raid occurs, people are beaten, equipment is destroyed, and heavy bribes are often demanded. Left indebted with no known alternative, they are driven deeper into brewing, creating increasingly potent blends. It’s simple: the stronger the drink, the greater the demand. Thousands have died recently, and many more consumers have been blinded by the rising ethanol content laced in home brew.

Brewing invites alcoholics into the home and creates a chaotic and unsafe household. Children are neglected and sometimes abused. They are even given brew as a meal substitute when no food is available. The majority of brewers are women, and these women are hungry for a way out.Many of the women and men who come for the training have left the church because they are ashamed of their life choices. Empowering Lives is committed to helping people find freedom from this trap.

Read Pius’s story and watch his testimony for insight into how brewing affects the whole family.

 

The solution:

ELI hosts week long trainings for people who are looking to leave brewing. During these trainings, participants are trained in alternate occupations like poultry, bee keeping, and running a small shop. But more than learning new skills, they are also told about the infinite love God has for them, and their worth in His eyes. They experience real freedom when they learn that they are of utmost value to God. Most come to Christ during the training and immediately return to fellowship in a church after the training!!!

The need:

The brewers we have reached so far are many but  there are hundreds more people looking for this same change. Your care today will give a family leader the opportunity to receive training from ELI and leave the brewing lifestyle behind – forever changing their own life, family, neighborhood and s we have seen first hand – their village!
