Our Mission Statement
ALARM exists to empower the African church to impact the African continent by developing and equipping leaders with skills and tools to nurture and deepen the Christian faith for the transformation and reconciliation of the African communities.
The goal of ALARM is to strengthen and empower the African church by equipping the untrained leadership with basic pastoral skill and ministerial tools. Our passion is to enable the African leaders to develop Bible-based churches that are spiritually vibrant and whose message is culturally relevant, ministering to the whole person and bringing hope and healing to the hurting communities. The aim of leadership development is to help men and women love what God loves and love as God loves, encouraging Christlikeness in their passions, their thinking, and their service to the church.
African Women's Initiatives
As a ministry of ALARM, AWI exists to empower African women by undergirding their initiatives toward leadership, economic development, and self-sufficiency. AWI offers formal and informal education, entrepreneurial training, technical expertise, capital investment, and micro-finance loans or grants.
All profits from the beads go directly to the women who make the jewelry by hand through a special technique using paper from magazines.

ALARM has graciously allowed a portion of the beads sold on this website to go toward my trip to Addis Ababa with Ethiopia Smiles in October 2010. That amount will be noted on each item.
