In a world filled with chaos and turmoil, it is heartwarming to know that there are people who care about the future of those less fortunate. Stephen McCullah has set out on an ambitious mission to provide hope for African orphans by creating homes dedicated to providing top-notch care and world-class education, focused character development, and sustainability.
Through this self-funded project, he hopes to create a lasting impact in these children’s lives so they can have the opportunity to pursue their dreams and make a difference in their communities. Let us take a closer look at how we can help support his vision now.
Putting the Wealth of Care & World-Class Education into Action
McCullah’s initiative is not only focused on creating homes and providing nutrition to children but also on creating world-class citizens. In order to do this, Cherie’s house will provide top-notch care and resources such as health services, counseling, education, character development programs, and more.
In order to provide the best care for the children, Cherie’s house will have home units that are staffed by local couples. These couples will act as the house mothers and fathers to groups of 6-9 children, allowing each child to receive individualized attention and affection, which is often overlooked in orphanage settings.
The qualified couples who staff the home units will also be a part of the larger ecosystem, participating in educational endeavors, nutrition programs, counseling, and other tasks involved with maintaining the complex.
The education system at Cherie’s house is set to be one of the best in Africa. Their focus will be to take elements from successful international institutions such as Harvard and MIT and package them into a system that will ultimately create world-changers and improve the quality of life in participating nations.
McCullah’s vision is one of hope, offering children a chance to be part of a safe and stable environment that is focused on creating positive change for generations to come. With this initiative, McCullah hopes to provide children with the opportunity to grow, learn and thrive in a nurturing environment.
Focused Character Development to Create a Foundation for Success
Discipline, responsibility, perseverance, and respect are all essential character traits that can be developed in children. Mr. McCullah believes that when these qualities become a part of a child’s foundation, they will have the capacity to excel in any field or endeavor.
He argues that encouraging focused character development is the key to creating meaningful success for students beyond the classroom.
If we combine this fundamental trait with the remaining component of this project – as mentioned above – then the end result will be a student who is well-rounded and capable of great success.
It is, therefore, important to focus on developing character traits that can help foster both academic excellence as well as personal growth and development.
Sustainability Creates Lasting Impact
The McCullah model ensures that not only is the ministry self-funded and sustainable, but it also creates a lasting impact. The initial funding for the project goes towards the establishment of housing, infrastructure, and the necessary resources to get it off the ground.
The donors’ contributions are then used to maintain and expand the complex, with any profits realized from surplus production going towards providing additional resources and services. This creates a cyclical effect, allowing the ministry to become self-sustaining and provide long-term support for those it serves.
How You Can Help Now
At this point, you’ll probably wonder how you can help Cherie’s House, and the answer is simple – pray. Prayers are the most powerful weapon we have in our fight against poverty and homelessness, so you may want to keep Cherie’s House in your thoughts as they continue to develop their project.
Other than prayers, you can also spread the word about Cherie’s House. Make sure that your friends and family know about the website (which will be soon unveiled), and share it on social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
Spreading the word is key in helping this team their 2023 launch date, so consider taking a moment to do your part.
