Founded in 2016, Vessels of Impact Ministries International seeks to end the poverty cycle throughout Africa and around the world and respond to the financial and education challenges faced primarily by widows, orphans and children through ministry resources, other nonprofits and donations.
During a trip to Nigeria in the summer of 2019, it only took a few weeks to absorb the economic climate around the cities and villages throughout the country. Through engaging conversation with locals and observing the poverty-stricken regions which in most cases encompassed entire city regions, it became evident that orphaned children, widows and impoverished families were the greatest suffers. Many of those suffering came from generations of poverty and no education. They are hungry, mentally drained and have very little hope. The alarming conditions and lack of assistance to these weak and feeble populations attributed to the formation of Vessels of Impact Ministries International, to prevent and put an end to poverty.
In February 2020, volunteers traveled to remote village areas in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria to assess the needs of daily living among widows, children, orphans and some medically challenged individuals. The report collected from this trip further substantiated the need and urgent response of aid to those living in poverty.
