WHY DO YOU ONLY HELP PEOPLE IN TRASH DUMP COMMUNITIES?
While we know there are a lot of poor areas in the world today, we are laser focused on one group of people. We believe in the theory of going a mile deep instead of a mile wide. We are learning as much as we can to help these people and believe God has called this ministry to help these people.
DO YOU EVER WORK WITH THE ACTUAL TRASH DUMP ITSELF?
At times we meet with trash dump managers to learn about the functions and plans for the trash. Our first priority is the people, but we do see a long-term vision of partnering with experts to help assist in better trash management.
IS TRASH MOUNTAIN PROJECT AFFILIATED WITH ANY ONE CHURCH OR DENOMINATION?
TMP is cross denominational and works with many different denominations. While there are core issues that we must agree on, we know that the poverty problem is severe, and we must work together as the Church to bring about sustainable change.
