After learning basic math principles in H.E.L.P. literacy classes, people are able to start their own businesses. H.E.L.P. teaches how to grow crops and animals as a business – vegetables, mushrooms, spices, goats, pigs, chickens, etc. – as well as sewing, candle making, and other ways to earn an income.
Another focus in H.E.L.P. is teaching people in the community to work together through forming farmer cooperatives, savings groups, and microloans.
Matthew 6:31-33, “So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.“
