Project spotlight

For God’s glory! Project SpotLight 2019 was successfully completed! It could not have happened in the last two years without the generosity of our friends in the community. JBVC is humble and grateful for all the people who came and watched the movie with us, appreciate all the hard work from many volunteers, and thankful to our wonderful partners, BrokerTeam Insurance and Across U-Hub, for bringing this event to the great success! We are also thankful to have our MPP Daisy Wai for presenting Project SpotLight and sharing her thoughts at the Ontario Legislature after the event.

It is our honour to have you with us at TIFF Bell Lightbox. We could not do it without your involvement. We pray JBVC will have the opportunity to partner with you again in the future.
Until then, may God bless all of you with peace and joy.

Your Impact

Every $50 fundraised provides clean water that lasts for one person. 100% of funds raised during this event goes to World Vision’s Water Projects in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). In the region of Menkao, only 55% of the population has access to potable water, and only 15% having access within 30 mins of their home. These projects will impact the lives of 13,834 people through three communities.

World Vision has since committed to allocate the 2019 Global 6K funds towards the following projects in the Menkao community:

  • Construct 4 wells with water treatment and distribution system built in Menkao center.
  • Establish and train 4 Drinking Water Management Committees on maintenance, sustainability and financial management.
  • Train 10 community members on manual and electric pumps repair.
  • Construct latrines in schools: 3 VIP latrine blocks with disabled access and menstrual management rooms will be set up in 3 primary schools.
  • Construct hand-washing stations: a rainwater harvesting system will be built in each school and each latrine will be equipped with a hand-washing system with a tap.

 

Thank you for making Project Spotlight happen!

Praise to our Lord that the Project Spotlight event has been completed successfully, with over 600 people and among them were 45 VIP and their families and friends, coming together to enjoy 《Dot 2 Dot》, the first Chinese descriptive movie in Canada.


We would like to say a special thank you to all the innovative partners and supporters listed below to make this dream come true! To all our amazing volunteers, with your hard work and determination, you have made the history!
Your love to our VIP will always be remembered and appreciated by all VIP! May our Lord Jesus Christ reward you all! Let us continue to create the inclusiveness and barriers free community for our VIP!
