David K. Anagbo and Melissa Ennin-Anagbo are the founders of Apple Homes. David and Melissa are both passionate missionaries, serving in diverse ways in the kingdom of God. They have shared desire to improve the lives of the under-privilege. Together they strongly believe that God chooses to bless His children in order for them to be a blessing to others. To achieve this desire, Apple Homes was birthed to bring together like-minded partners with the goal to create an impact and make a difference in many lives and communities.
OUR FOCUS AND SCOPE
Our scope of work is achieved in two ways;
- 1. As a supporting NGO to other NGO’s such as other foundations, orphanages, shelters and the like
- 2. As project initiators and managers e.g. building and managing orphanages, shelters, buildings, borehole projects etc
Our scope of work includes most things that provide relief for the needy, however our focus is on long-term projects that have long term benefits for the people.
“We learned that orphans are easier to ignore before you know their names. They are easier to ignore before you see their faces. It is easier to pretend they are not real before you hold them in your arms. But once you do, everything changes”-David Platt. Apple Homes identifies existing registered orphanages, which have been operating for at least 5 years and works with them to improve their facilities. Improvement could be anything between renovating aspects of their facilities (toilets, kitchen, bathroom, dormitories, offices, classrooms) to raising complete buildings for them.
POTABLE WATER PROJECTS
At Apple Homes, part of our scope is to see the gift of clean and safe water extended to all through building of boreholes in deprived areas in the country. We believe that clean water is a critical building block for a stable life and the possibilities of greater change.
VILLAGE COMMUNITY IMPROVEMENT
In terms of Village Community Improvement, Apple Homes’ mode of operation consists mainly of identifying other small charities that have already made inroads into certain villages, and helping them with funding for specific projects. However as mentioned above, this is not our only approach.
