The purpose of the Solace Family Home is to be a place of refuge for children in need. A team of volunteers from Solace Church visited Cote d’Ivoire and toured other orphanages in the area...
Solace Family Home is only possible because of the generosity of individuals and businesses.
1040i is devoted to giving life in Cote d’Ivoire by providing water, health, and education initiatives. They are involved in the country in a number of ways. Here are a few examples:
Medical Mission Trips
Every year they take a team of doctors, nurses, and volunteers to Cote d’Ivoire to provide medical care and surgeries for individuals that would otherwise not receive care. This ongoing mission has helped created many meaningful relationships and partnerships in the country.
In 2014, 1040i opened a bilingual academy that is committed to raising ethical leaders for the Ivory Coast, the continent of Africa, and the world. The school currently educates elementary students but has future plans for a middle school and high school. This project is crucial because education helps break generational barriers and gives children the chance to have new opportunities in their life.
1040i serves as a cultural expert for Solace Church and the Solace Family Home. Their knowledge of the culture and context have been incredibly important in the planning stages of the project. They also provided the land on which the Solace Family Home will be built. The same property houses the bilingual academy and a church.
