The Globe Jumpers is a humanitarian and adventure travel movement founded in 2012 in Montreal, Quebec (Canada) by Nader Diab, 29 years old and Imad Berro, 28 years old. Nader and Imad developed a strong humanitarian conscience: it is through their contact with these communities that they developed the framework for The Globe Jumpers, a non-religious, apolitical, eco-responsible, and socially conscious traveling movement. The idea is to give their fellow travellers the opportunity to bring local solutions to global problems, by pairing grassroots organizations with donors and international volunteers willing to give a helping hand.
The Globe Jumpers opened a leisure center for mentally challenged individuals in the east African city of Bujumbura (Burundi), in the summer of 2014. Thanks to their extended and influential social media network, they managed to raise 5000$ dollars and gather fifteen international volunteers from five different countries to come spend a month helping a community that was in dire need of support. During their time in the center, activities such as sports, music, writing, dancing, drawing, singing, arts and crafts and much more were offered on a daily basis. In addition, psychological support was given to the mothers and families of the mentally challenged persons, and awareness campaigns were set up to educate and inform the community in an effort to diminish the stigma associated with mental handicap. The Globe Jumpers are still sending financial support to the ones that need it the most but they are also teaming up with another center “Akamuri ” and aiming to start a long term and sustainable volunteering program between Burundi and rest of the world. In addition, The Globe Jumpers are helping a foundation named: Feed a child Burundi by contributing in giving a free meal to a group of kids that lives on the streets. A short video is currently being produced explaining in details our pilot mission in Burundi.
New Creature Baptist Church, located in Philadelphia Pennsylvania is an Haitian American church founded by Pastor Ernst Petit-frere. In 2 Corinthians 5:17 the Bible says “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!” While we were yet sinners, Christ died for our sins. Once we choose to believe in this act of humility provided to the whole world and all generations, we then become a new creation in the Lord. As new creations in the Lord we are given the Holy Spirit that provides us with all the tools we need for our spiritual walk. The Bible tells us in Galatians 5:22-23 that the fruit of the Spirit is love,joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.Against such things there is no law. In Christ we embody our true being.New Creature Baptist hopes to reach individuals both locally and globally with this message of the gospel. We demonstrate Christ love through worship, evangelism and service to our neighborhood community in Frankford Philadelphia and orphanages in Haiti and Burundi. Our partnership with the orphanage Youth Building in Synergy to End Poverty in Burundi, Africa consist of funding Sunday breakfast meals for orphan and street children through the Feed A Child Program. Our initiative to help children starts at home first and then to the world. Through these efforts to provide for children and individuals in need we represent the kingdom and hope to spread Christ love.
