The Amsterdam Connection

The Solis Foundation is excited to be engaging with a group of eager and energetic individuals from Amsterdam. The individuals are members of Zolder 50, a Christian Church within the Great Commission Ministries (GCM) network of churches who have a heart for the world and seek to use their skills to help others. The Solis Foundation will be working with this group in determining the best and most effective method in serving developing communities in Kenya. I am excited to have the opportunity to be working with a great group of people.

Moving Forward With a New Partner

This past week has been an amazing time for the Solis Foundation. Both myself and JR Woodward traveled to the San Francisco Bay Area to meet with the Village Enterprise Fund (VEF). Established in 1987, the VEF is a highly successful and effective international economic development organization providing business grants and micro-loans to communities in Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania. VEF will be partnering with the Solis Foundation on fund disbursement, business accountability, and training. We are also coordinating a missions trip with them this coming Fall. More information about this partnership and missions trip will be available on the Solis Foundation corporate website soon.
