2014 - Present
Restore a Child is reaching out to the vulnerable Guarani indigenous children in Misiones, Argentina in partnership with Engineer Warren McDaniels, president/founder of BEAM International. Warren and his wife Jodi, American missionaries, have served in South America for the past 16 years.
Construction of the Bashir Hasso Vocational Training Institute started September 2015 in memory of the late Bashir Hasso, a very generous philanthropist from Iraq. A couple from Argentina donated 225 acres of fertile soil and wooded land with a water and a big creek for irrigation. The land has all many trees which we cut and use for building homes. Two green houses were built in 2020. This allows the Guarani people to grow their own food. During Founder Norma Nashed visit in 2016, 650 fruit trees were planted. Now we are reaping a large harvest of citrus fruits, bananas, peaches and others. Organic vegetables are planted to feed the volunteers and Guarani children in the community.
To provide more sustainability, young people from around South America are trained in the vocational skills of construction, electrical, agriculture, farming, fruit trees, woodwork and welding. One trained volunteer went to Tanzania to serve for one year. Also, while young volunteers were trained, they helped Engineer McDaniels build three homes and a bridge to cross a river on the donated land.
