Annual Report for 2020

Celebrating 25 years of listening, responding & bearing witness to global partners.

When a passionate, dedicated and mission-minded group formally registered their new “mission advocacy” organization with the State of Minnesota in the summer of 1995, they couldn’t have known the twists and turns that Lutheran Partners in Global Ministry would travel over the next two and a half decades.

Founded in response to Tim Olson’s tragic death in the Central African Republic, this community came together in the hope and faith that green shoots would rise out of the dead earth.

They didn’t yet know that a small Lutheran church body in India would reach out about sponsoring students who needed a place to live and learn. They couldn’t have imagined waking up to news of a catastrophic tsunami in the Indian Ocean in 2004 that would affect so many, or of the dream of building a community college in the ensuing ten years that would focus on the families and livelihoods of those very tsunami victims.

In the past 25 years, the community of LPGM has grown and transformed in unimaginable ways.

More than 600 of you have traveled to places like the Central African Republic, Argentina, Guatemala and India, meeting neighbors, seeing how God is at work across the world, and returning home transformed.

You’ve helped more than 9,344 people living in dire poverty in C.A.R. access stable financial loans through the Village Savings and Loan program.

You’ve provided scholarships for young Q’eqchi’ Maya women in Guatemala and provided safe housing for young Maasai women in Tanzania.

You continue to respond when a pandemic greatly affects all our global partners.

All of this has happened, and continues to happen, because for 25 years the LPGM community of which you’re a part has listened to the needs and priorities of neighbors around the world and responded to their voices.

Thank you for being part of this community over the past 25 years, and for driving this mission and ministry for another 25 to come!

Message from our Board Chair

It’s not an understatement to say that COVID-19 affected everything this past year. In February of 2020, LPGM staff Mary Peterson and Dan Ruth attended strategy meetings with all the international partners of the Arcot Lutheran Church (ALC) in Chennai, India. The ALC had designated 2020 as the “Year of Labor.” It was inspiring and energizing. The ALC’s leaders had grand plans for making an impact.

Even as the meeting focused on strategy and planning, conversations during coffee and tea breaks often circled back to a “new virus” that was beginning to circle the globe. Nobody imagined how the novel coronavirus would define the year that had only just begun.

The COVID-19 crisis has affected everyone around the world–including all of us in the United States, and you reading this. As with most crises, it has disproportionately affected people at the margins who often live with closer social ties, fewer financial resources, more delicate infrastructures, and fragile or inaccessible healthcare systems. The girls, boys, women and men who take part in LPGM-funded programs are no exception.

Your support provided much-needed stability for all our partners and programs this year, even as the focus of our efforts shifted to address the unprecedented effects of the pandemic. Thank you. You helped ensure that all the people we serve have the opportunities and resources they need to survive this crisis, continue to pursue their educational goals in innovative ways, and navigate a return to school in safety and with confidence.

I am grateful for the LPGM community, from sponsors and donors like you, to dedicated staff and partners who consistently choose to put the needs of students at the center of our shared efforts. Thank you for being part of this global community where we meet one another as one human to another, experiencing God’s presence in relationships of mutual service and gratitude.

As we look ahead to the future, I am hopeful and grateful. I’m impressed by the commitments we share and by the leaders in each of our partner programs who will continue to guide us in providing access to quality education to people at the margins–especially women and girls.

Our Vision

LPGM envisions a world where relationships transform boundaries and where all people have the resources and opportunities they need to thrive.

Our Mission

LPGM provides access to quality education for people at the margins – especially women and girls. We work together with global partners to listen, respond and bear witness to local needs and priorities.

The Power of Education

A girl who attends secondary school is 3x less likely to be a child bride.

Each year of school increases a girl’s future earning by 25%.

For every $1 invested in education, $10 is gained in earnings & health benefits.

The Response to COVID-19 in 2020

Your sustaining gifts allowed us to respond quickly and effectively to our partners’ needs. The crisis changed daily, and we worked hard to ensure all people have the resources and opportunities they need to thrive.

Guatemala

LPGM’s partnership with Community Cloud Forest Conservation gives young Q’eqchi’ Maya women scholarships to attend school, and those young women teach important lessons of environmental conservation. The normally 25-day WALC program is being spread throughout 2021, offering lessons via WhatsApp, as well as local radio broadcasts.

CCFC held a week of socially distanced, masked teaching workshops for a network of middle and high school teachers. They also added a bicycle-powered mill for grinding corn and grains, which makes a daily chore much faster, a lot easier, and lots of fun!

Total Program Expenses: $56,418*

The Central African Republic

While the LPGM-sponsored Village Savings and Loan (VSL) program officially ended in 2018, VSL groups continue to operate as planned, providing group savings and capital to their members.

C.A.R. didn’t experience major COVID-19 outbreaks across the country, relative to other places in the world. But the economic impact of the global pandemic has caused additional instability and exacerbated poverty in the region.

We provided funding to the Evangelical Lutheran Church in C.A.R. for ongoing needs.

Total Program Expenses: $6,958

Tanzania

After a few months of shutdown, schools in Tanzania reopened in June as the government there declared victory over COVID-19.

For this reason, the LPGM-supported Safe House has been a necessary refuge for young women who would not be safe returning home due to the dangers of early marriage and domestic abuse.

We continue to support initiatives to train young women and their communities on ways to improve their safety, well-being, and self-sufficiency,
such as through Peace Club.

Total Program Expenses: $29,387

India

Schools across India closed in March, forcing students to return home for the remainder of the year, where food, medicine, and resources are sadly lacking.

Your sponsorship provided dry food to families, and brought outdoor, socially distanced education to villages.

Tailoring students at the ALC Community College and Timothy Center sewed and distributed facemasks to healthcare workers during the pandemic.

Total Program Expenses: $562,049*
