Any given day, countless millions of people around the world are struggling to provide for one or more of the FEWS basic needs.
They may be encountering lack of access to abundant and nutritious food, clean water, secure and sanitary housing, and/or energy to light or heat their home.
There's an opportunity for us to reveal God's love and goodness to people through helping them discover creative and local solutions to their basic needs -- thus helping them move from surviving towards thriving.
GoMidwife exists to train the next generation of doulas, childbirth educators and midwives.
Our desire is to see birth workers equipped and released throughout the nations to teach and serve women during the childbearing years.
Aquaponics combines raising fish (Aquaculture) with growing plants in water (Hydroponics).
This is done using no soil in a recycling water system.
Beneficial bacteria convert the ammonia produced by the fish into nitrates which feeds the plants.
By absorbing the nitrates, the plants clean the water which is then returned back into the fish tank.
As the water falls from the plant rafts back into the fish tank it absorbs oxygen which aerates the water for the fish, plants, and bacteria.
When we are working in a Developing Country, is the work we are doing helping or hurting?
Are we providing solutions to problems thay have or creating more problems?
Are we providing solution that people want or only what we think they need?
is our local expresion of the College of Science and Technology of the University of the Nations.
Around the world the College of Science and Technology will often partner with the College of Humanities and International Studies to provide a large range of courses.
The Collage of Science and Technology around te world.
We are looking for people who want to learn about natural farming, aquaculture and aquaponics (growing food on water with fish providing the nutrients), community water technology, simple ways to improve sanitation, sustainable energy, and practical small-scale construction.
These tools are part of the two-handed gospel; practically showing God’s love, while sharing the Gospel of Jesus. If your desire is to bring the love of God through practical, hands-on work, then we have created a new training track designed specifically to facilitate your passion.
This program requires commitment and passion for the cause, and a willingness to obey the voice of God. It is a commitment!
After a series of seminars in various technologies, in tandem with a community development school, you will be part of a small outreach team that will have an extended field assignment (of at least 6 months) to a YWAM base somewhere in the developing world. There you will use your training and experience to help the base staff establish a Community Technology Program, thereby multiplying what you have learned to help people who are in need in the area.
Be open to the idea that God may call you to that location long-term, or call you to take what you’ve learned to another location to do the same thing. Become part of the strategy to multiply training in community technology and bring the two-handed gospel to hungry and thirsty people around the world.
Are you in?
Modules on different technologies are open to anyone, whether you are in the training track or not. Seminars of interest will be posted at http://www.uofnkona.edu
The Science and Technology department is in the process of creating a DTS with a Community Technology theme - Creation Care, Wise Stewardship, Sustainable Agriculture, etc. More information will be forthcoming throughout 2013.
