$1,387,000 for overseas programs


Objectives Every Home global concern/every home for christ in Australia has two objectives. the first objective, working as part of an international missions organisation, is to reach all people in every nation with a printed copy of the Gospel and to follow up those who respond. the second objective is to assist poor and disadvantaged men, women & children in developing countries lift themselves out of poverty. these development programs provide assistance and training to the poor so that they can obtain the skills necessary to alleviate their poverty in a sustainable way.

Every Home for Christ features the literature distribution in its monthly newsletters and the development programs and relief assistance are outlined in this Annual Report. Funds are received from the public and from the Australian government. In 2016/17 we supported programs in Argentina, Bangladesh, Brazil, China, Nepal, Guam, India, Israel, Malawi, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Spain and Sri Lanka and we are extremely grateful to all those who prayerfully and financially supported this work. We couldn't do it without you! Eric Leach Executive Director Australia & New Zealand

in partnership with EHC Malawi and EHC Zambia

MALAWI & ZAMBIA Community Development with an emphasis on Food Security, Health and Nutrition, Water and Sanitation and Earning an Income Imagine being unable to give your family 3 meals a day! This was the case for 90% of families where Malawi & Zambia commenced Food Security projects five years ago.THEN only 140 families could provide 3 meals a day. NOW 7,958 people have improved their food security, income, nutrition, safe water and sanitation facilities and a similar 5 year program in other areas has begun. What a difference 5 years can make!

Imagine being unable to give your family clean water! Before this project women were travelling 1.7km to draw safe water and could take 4 hours to bring the water home due to congestion at the water point. To save time women decided to draw water from rivers and streams with the result that children and women were often suffering from diarrhoea and water borne diseases, making frequent hospital visits and failing to cultivate their farms. The end result was malnutrition, especially for the children. EHC provided the materials and training and the villagers built 63 shallow wells and 26 toilets, resulting in less sickness and hospital visits and more time freed up to work on their farms.



Zinyengo, a 57 year old subsistence farmer in Karonga, and his wife Rozina, have 11 children and Zinyengo has struggled all his life to feed such a large family and to provide a house for them. He could not afford to feed them all, to pay for their health care when they became ill, for their clothes or for their education. When the Food Security project started in his village he was chosen to participate and received maize and fertiliser and attended training. He was amazed when, at the end of the year, he had 25 bags of maize to sell and this made it possible to buy iron sheets to upgrade the roof of his house from grass. Imagine his further amazement and delight when 12 months later, after selling more bags of maize, he was able to bake bricks and build a new brick house for his family instead of the mud brick home they had lived in for so long. With the addition of new crops such as cassava, rice, vegetables and bananas, he is able to feed his large family and, by becoming a member of the Village Savings and Loans group, he is even able to employ others as casual labourers. What a difference this project has made to the life of Zinyengo and his family! 26 year-old Cosmos Phiri from a small Zambian village dropped out of school 4 years ago because his parents had no money for his education. To make some money he tried to farm a small piece of land but was largely unsuccessful until EHC Zambia commenced training on improving farming technology. Cosmos attended and as a result was able to harvest 3 oxcarts full of grain with surplus stored in a granary which the project taught him to build. He is now also growing cash crops such as soya beans, sunflower and peanuts and is hoping for another good harvest so that he can return to school and complete his secondary school education. What a difference a starter pack of seed and fertiliser makes to the life of a young man!


LIVES CHANGED wells Working together, EHC Malawi and the villagers were able to build this shallow well in Jalanthowa village, making long, daily visits to find water a thing of the past and women are utilising their time on their farms, currently harvesting enough to feed their families and prevent malnutrition, especially among pregnant and lactating women and children under 5. This village is extremely grateful that donors in Australia and New Zealand have made this life-change possible!

health The delight of this family at having a toilet that doesn't wash away in the rainy season is obvious! As a result of toilets like this one and education in health and hygiene, there has been a reduction in the numbers of cases of diarrhoea and there has not been a single outbreak of cholera during the last 5 years in spite of outbreaks in neighbouring communities. The distribution of 500 mosquito nets has resulted in 74% less cases of Malaria.

Patients treated at the clinic In partnership with Togo EHC Attendance at the EHGC Dr Jack McAlister Medical Clinic in Togo increased in 2016/17 to 1,422 patients, primarily the elderly, orphans, children, people with disability and pregnant women. There was a decrease in common diseases, including 280 fewer cases of Malaria and no deaths of babies or women during birthing. One problem being addressed is the regular turnover of staff at the Clinic and construction of staff quarters has commenced so that doctors and nurses can live near the Clinic. The Village Savings and Loans project in Vo District gave loans to 74 men and 147 women in 11 villages who commenced small businesses such as duck and chicken breeding, crop production for sale, hair dressing and fish and goat farming. Training in health issues along with training in business and finance has enabled the 221 men and women to increase their income and improve the lives of their families.

1To provide basic needs required to maintain decent levels of health and sanitation. 2To increase literacy in the prison and to promote education as a wholesome alternative to community crime, including providing education for the children of prisoners. 3Skills training allowing them to generate an income while in prison as well as upon release. 4To educate prisoners on HIV and AIDs, providing information and teaching material surrounding facts, risks, transmission, symptoms, myths and prevention. 5Sport: To encourage physical health and fitness for those in prison. In partnership In 2017 a car was purchased to make it easier with Eloi Ethiopian to visit the nine prisons in the program. Prison Ministry


INDIA & BANGLADESH Community Development with an emphasis on Primary School Education, Health Education, Sewing Training for Women and Earning an Income. 10

Pictured on the left is a typical family in the low-caste Indian village in which Every Home Global Concern has built a Primary School and is planning a High School. Without the help you give through child sponsorship and other donations, these families and others in Bangladesh are destined to spend their entire lives in houses like this one with no way out of their poverty. Basic education (in English in our India school), sewing and embroidery classes for women, village health education, clean water and sanitation and a daily feeding program for the children, gives some hope for a better, healthier future for these families. Women in India and men in Bangladesh are taught how to save money, to have a bank account and to help purchase their own sewing machine or rickshaw, enabling them to increase their income and make a way forward out of the slum conditions they live in.

In partnership with MIBRA Brazil

Brazil (the Amazon) has now completed its third and final year. WITH AN EMPHASIS ON HEALTH, INCOME GENERATION AND EDUCATION the following was achieved 1. 100% of houses targeted in Brazil built toilets, helping to improve the health of 672 men, women and children. 2. Two communities in Brazil raised funds to drill a bore hole for drinking water, supplemented by a rainwater collection system, which enabled the people to have clean, safe drinking water which in turn has also led to improved health. 3. A malaria treatment centre was constructed and a community member was trained in the diagnosis and treatment of Malaria. 4. Through a training program to help people in their production of manioc flour, the number of people becoming self-sufficient increased from 44% to 85%. 5. The number of poor people who increased their income rose from 10% to 75%. 6. Two communities built schools and one obtained a local teacher.

In partnership with Samoa EHC

SAMOA The Samoa Income Generation Project has now completed a three year program in 13 communities on the islands of Upolo and Savaii with the aim of increasing income through vocational training. 552 men and women were trained in sewing, stencil design and floristry as well as basic financial management and child protection with 38 men and women increasing their income. $650 worth of goods that were made by the men and women in the training classes was exported and sold to markets in American Samoa. A local bank was brought alongside the program which provided $900 worth of training in financial management to all participants without charge, a wonderful asset to the program. Morgan Gegera, the project manager said,. "I am extremely grateful for this project. I have personally witnessed the impact this project has had on the lives of many poor people in Samoa. Some women have now initiated income generating activities while others have gone on to find employment elsewhere. Most of these women are now financially literate and are able to make informed desicions concerning their money because of the training provided by the Bank of South Pacific. More women have also opened up new bank accounts and are starting to save money. The outcome has been phenomenal."

VALUE FOR MONEY The programs this year continued to provide value for money. All projects met or exceeded their goals while keeping to their budgets, despite challenges suchs as flooding and drought in some areas. In Malawi the original budget aimed to construct 30 toilets and 150 wells over the 5 years but 71 toilets and 210 shallow wells were installed without increasing the funds needed. This happened because the villagers provided the labour, bricks, sand, water and land without charge. In Samoa those being trained provided a local training centre and refreshments free of charge - a saving over 5 years of $3,000 - $6,000 per course. In Zambia volunteer lead farmers were trained who in turn trained others, enabling more assistance to other farmers who were able to increase the yield of their crops. In Brazil staff costs were reuced by employing a project manager and assistant who could also function as boat drivers.


We value people

Australian and in-country staff systematically monitor and evaluate programs to improve effectiveness, provide value for money and give feedback for future activities. Independent evaluations often take place at the close of a multi-year project or program. An evaluation at the close of the community-led Brazil (Amazon) project stated that "the overall success achieved by the project has improved significantly the basic living conditions of the communities" and "the inclusion of women in the decisionmaking process allows for the integration of all, Some of the people helped by the Amazon project. promotes mutual respect and creates a stable social environment". The Samoa Women's Empowerment Project was also evaluated with positive findings, particularly in the area of improved skills, which is in line with the development priorities and overall vision of the Samoan government for its country.

SAFEGUARDS child protection:

4,567 people were trained in child protection and in Malawi 2,455 children, including many orphans, were fed in supplementary feeding centres which saw their nutrition and health improve.

fraud: To safeguard against fraud an independent audit was undertaken in 3 projects and a separate independent evaluation was also undertaken in Samoa. Funds to all projects were tracked by monthly financial reporting and monitoring visits which allowed for personal checking of financial systems and records.


With a large number of the projects dependent on the climate, over 92 training sessions were conducted in Africa, teaching 2,700 farmers how to minimise the effects of drought by improving their farming methods and diversifying their crops, not depending soley on maize for their food.



By checking the organisations and people we work with overseas against the government's terrorist list and by working primarily with Every Home affiliated partners, we lessen the possibility of our programs being infiltrated by terrorism.

exchange rate losses: Research was conducted on the exchange rate over the last 10 years to determine a conservative exchange rate and then funds were kept in A$ and sent oveseas in monthly amounts.

finances 2016-2017


"We thank all our friends and donors for their continued

support for Every Home for Christ/Every Home Global Concern. For the year ended 30 June 2017 there was total revenue of $1,984,086 and a net loss of $86,505 as shown in the financial statements. Cash and receivables at the end of the year amounted to $863,214, while current liabilities was $338,860. Hence the ministry is in a highly liquid and strong financial position to meet current commitments. This was backed by net assets at year end of $1,848,595.


Donation income from supporters in the 2016-2017 financial year increased overall by $16,908 compared to the previous financial year. However, income for overseas aid decreased, primarily because the Australian government gave $472,438 less than the previous year. $528,784 was given from supporters for overseas aid activities. There was an increase of $110,554 in donations for evangelism and administration compared to last financial year and we are extremely grateful to all our donors for their faithful support. Expenses, including administration and fundraising costs, were slightly less than the previous financial year. The overall financial health of the organisation is excellent and we are thankful to God for His blessing. EVERY HOME GLOBAL CONCERN
