The Mustard Seed Peace Project (MSPP) is a grassroots non-profit organization with 510(c) (3) status whose vision is to support youth in underprivileged countries. By addressing their medical, dental, educational, nutritional and economic needs, we hope to empower the native youth to become instruments of change in their homes, communities and countries.
We are currently working in the countries of Guatemala and Zambia. In Guatemala we have purchased a little over 11 acres of land in the municipality of Playa Grande located in the Ixcan region. On this land, with the help of the people of the village of Virginia we have dug a well, built a park and several other structures. One of these structures will be used as a clinic for our visiting medical teams. Our plans for Guatemala include an educational sponsorship program, a nutritional education program and several micro-economic projects for the women of the village of Virginia.
In 2007, we expanded our work to the Western Province of Zambia. We are currently partnering to sponsor a program for 50-60 at-risk infants as well as a school lunch program in Lukulu. Our plans for Zambia include a community center to house programs for women, early child care and education, a library, a health center and a feeding program for Lukulu and the surrounding areas.
