JESUS TEACHES US TO REMEMBER THE POOR
What is the Best Way to Help People Living in Poverty?
When people lack the income and dignity that comes from having a good job, poverty is a result.
In the developing world, there is a huge gap in funding for small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs). SMEs make up the bulk of job-creating businesses in high-income countries. They are the backbone of almost every economy.
However, SMEs remain significantly underfunded and underserved in low-income countries.
This should concern us because of the impact it makes on “the least of these," which often includes acts of desperation such as prostitution, theft, civil strife, refugee flight, or even terrorism.

Masaka Creamery in Rwanda
There is nothing quite like a person gaining
dignity and Hope from a good job.
As he read the newsletter his heart broke. A precious, malnourished Rwandan toddler was in a coma. Her mother had struggled to care for her needs, mainly because she was poor and Deaf.
Within months, Jon Porter had quit his job in Seattle and moved to Rwanda. Jon acquired a defunct dairy business that was within walking distance from where the little girl’s mother, Nayino, lived, and made major improvements to the business and its working conditions. To create a welcoming environment for Nayino, Jon found and hired four other Deaf Rwandans from a local Deaf church.
Nayino’s child would soon emerge alive from her coma. Nayino had been marginalized in society and didn’t know how to read, write, sign or speak. In a short amount of time, Nayino began her first day of formal employment in an environment that would enable her to both flourish and earn a living at the same time.
Today, Masaka Creamery is a leading, values-driven, high-quality dairy processing business in Rwanda that purchases raw milk from over 2,000 smallholder farmers to produce yogurt, butter, cream and other dairy products. The company’s Deaf employees, many of whom previously lived in abject poverty, have been honored by Rwandan Ministers, international ambassadors, and more. In 2020 the company generated record monthly revenues. In addition to purchasing milk from 2,000+ smallholder dairy farmers, Masaka supports 45 employees, who in turn invest in their families and communities.
Masaka stands apart in their special and unique employment practices as over half of their employees are Deaf, including several members of the management team. All of the management team and staff learn sign language.
