Towdah Kebun (Farming Project)
Our aim is for Towdah Kebun (Garden of Thanksgiving Praise) to grow crops to feed the needy communities in Bintan as well as our orphanage.
In order to help the poor stand on their own two feet, 5miles offers small loans to those who want to build homes, venture into goat farming, start a small business to support their family or even build their own fishing boats.
19 “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
