One of the core values of The Everett and Austin Project is to help our recipients to be self-sufficient. We have been adding businesses started over the course of our 2.5 years in existence.

We had been stuck on 5 businesses started for a while but this year we have added 8 more! And we have 3 more in mind to start very soon.

We added 2 businesses earlier this year and then just this month added 6 more! We are so happy to be helping people to become self-sufficient, especially special needs families.

We have now helped 13 local African families to start their own business, including the first 2 which I wrote about here.

I'm a born-again christian, sold out to serving the needs of the less fortunate and in Sub-Saharan Africa. I founded The Everett and Austin Project in October 2018 to honor my 2 boys posthumously by helping people living in poverty going thru Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and other rare diseases. My sons each died of Duchenne, Austin in 2012 at age 16 and Everett in 2017 at age 22.
