Christmas
Giving 2022

Help introduce the world to Jesus this Christmas.

Rosedale International (RI) and Rosedale Business Group (RBG) are focused on taking the transformative love of Jesus to the ends of the earth. We do so by concentrating on least-reached groups of people who have little or no access to this good news. 

The special projects featured here give you a chance to directly impact someone’s life in a tangible way. Each opportunity has been selected to connect you with workers and locations where we are currently serving or have planted churches in the past.

2022 Projects

 $8 per kit  |  Nicaragua |  $1,600 goal

SCHOOL KITS

In many countries around the world, a lack of school supplies keeps children from attending school. This project provides children in Nicaragua with the simple, yet necessary gift of school supplies. Every kit includes pencils, pens, markers, notebooks, a ruler, an eraser, and pencil sharpener—blessing children in need with the materials they need to receive an education.

 $12 per tree  |  Global |  $1,200 goal

FRUIT TREES

With a fruit tree, give a gift that keeps on giving. Fruit trees are a sustainable source of nutrition for families around the world. As these trees mature, the harvest can also provide additional income. RBG works with local church leaders to identify, deliver, and plant trees in communities with great economic, physical, and spiritual needs.

 $70 per bed  | Africa & Asia |  $1,750 goal

MATTRESSES

There is a great need for new, clean mattresses in Africa and Asia. In Africa, funds collected will help various churches and conferences provide adequate sleeping conditions to individuals in need, as well as in churches and retreat centers. In Asia, these mattresses will benefit the young men and women who live in the hostels run by RI partners.

 $ any amount  |  Global |  $2,000 goal 

SOCCER EQUIPMENT

Soccer, futebol, fút bon, jogo bonito, whatever you call it, the “beautiful game” is enjoyed in many corners of the globe and provides natural opportunities to build connections and friendships in a community. Your donation to this project will help provide valuable soccer equipment, nets, footwear, and apparel to children in Latin America, Africa, and Asia. 

 $ any amount |  Asia |  $900 goal

SEWING MACHINES

RI partners in Asia run a hostel for female students seeking better educational opportunities. To equip them with practical skills, they want to offer technical training in the art of sewing—opening wider opportunities for future employment in both rural and urban communities. Funds will go towards the purchase of sewing machines, thread, and fabric.

 $ any amount |  Global |  $1,000 goal

MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS

In addition to practical skills, the hostel in Asia hopes to cultivate the students’ creative talents. This project seeks to supply the hostel with musical instruments—allowing the students to expand their education beyond the basics. 

 $ any amount | Global | $2,000 goal

COMPUTERS

RI is distributing free microcomputers to individuals in need around the world. These computers don’t need internet access, and are preloaded with school lessons and encyclopedias—a great educational and literacy resource for hostels and after-school programs. Because these computers are free, all funds will go toward peripherals such as keyboards, monitors, and mice—essential for utilizing the technology.

 $ any amount |  West Africa & Nicaragua |  $20,000 goal

WATER PROJECTS

This Christmas, help two different communities gain proper access to clean water. In West Africa, a Bible school needs a new water tower to supply the needs of its students and staff. This school is closely connected to Devin, an RI worker in the area ($5,000 goal). In Nicaragua, a well is being planned to give an entire community access to fresh water. The 45 homes, 2 churches, and a school are without access to water after a neighboring community stopped providing access to their water because they were running low ($15,000 goal).

If funds collected exceed the need, we will direct them toward future projects.
