MissionAssist provides grants of up to £600 each to several small projects per year. We aim to provide encouragement and support, particularly in areas where this amount of money can make a big difference.

The projects must fit within our objectives as defined in our charity’s Trust Deed. To give you an idea of what that can encompass, grants in recent years have included funding for

  • Materials for a six month course of sewing training for more than 20 underprivileged women in Kenya, to enable them to start their own businesses and put food on the table.
  • Bibles and song books for a community in India who rely on daily wages and have no means to afford their own copies.
  • A retreat and training event for local leaders in an Asian country where there is religious discrimination and harassment.
  • Equipment for church members so they can juice, seal, label and store fruit as bottled juice, to reduce fruit going to waste and generate income as a small enterprise in West Africa.
  • The roof, door and windows to complete a water-tight building – an office and storeroom for crèche food and educational materials used in a feeding programme in an area with 2,500 children under the age of five in South Africa.

“Your grant is very helpful. Many were reading the Bible and knowing more about Jesus Christ. Thank you so much.”

“Thank you for your co-operation in establishing the kingdom of God by providing precious funds.”
Community development leader, Asia

Please note that the small grants process can take several months including application, approval and international payment. Currently, there is a very high demand for grants so there may be a longer wait than usual for a response.

MissionAssist, including the budget for small grants, is funded by donations from our members. Read more about donations.
