Family Stabilization

“Child maltreatment is the abuse and neglect that occurs to children under 18 years of age. It includes all types of physical and/or emotional ill-treatment, sexual abuse, neglect, negligence, and commercial or other exploitation, which results in actual or potential harm to the child’s health, survival, development, or dignity in the context of a relationship of responsibility, trust or power.” - Africa Health Organisation

We started working with a Gabonese faith-based non-profit a few years ago on small projects and programs to see how they would do with initiating their programs, holding ministry events, and then the follow-up reporting we needed. With this NGO called MINE, we supported several smaller programs, and we were so impressed with the outcome and the way the founder, Pastor Hermann, shares the Gospel that we turned our relationship into a full partnership in 2021. In 2022, Pastor Hermann set out a comprehensive plan with each program/event building on the previous ones. We are currently supporting his annual plan, which includes the following programs:

  • Holistic Medical Program add_circle_outline
  • Day camps and summer campsadd_circle_outline
  • School supply distributions for children that cannot afford them add_circle_outline
  • School scholarships to keep children in schooladd_circle_outline
  • Abuse awareness and prevention eventadd_circle_outline
  • Recreational Fun Days while psychological interviews are offeredadd_circle_outline
  • Foodbank to alleviate food scarcity add_circle_outline

MINE stands for Ministere de L’évangélisation et de l’enseignement des enfants (Ministry of Evangelism and Children’s Education). This program focuses on an area outside of Libreville with a large concentration of unstable families with or at risk of child maltreatment, with a high percentage of young single mothers with many children or children living with relatives. Stabilizing families is critical because these interventions prevent more children from becoming orphans and improve their family relations and living conditions. Our partners are passionate about protecting children and sharing the Gospel at each event. They have a team of volunteers, including psychologists, social workers, medical professionals, and general volunteers to achieve success through their programs. As they conduct each event/program, the team provides holistic care to the needs of each person so that real, lasting change can occur.

The video below was produced by MINE (Ministere de L’évangélisation et de l’enseignement des enfants - Ministry of Evangelism and Children’s Education). It captures one program from the annual plan we support through MINE. This backpack and school supply distribution was held at a church that was just built the year before from the team's presence in a village steeped in animism and ancestor worship before the team started serving there. Now, there is a Christian community worshipping Jesus and sharing His love through meeting the physical needs of the community.


What We Do

Public Health

At E4 Project, public health encompasses not only the physical well-being of individuals but also the spiritual, social, and emotional aspects of an individual’s health. In the countries where we serve, examples of various public health initiatives include providing access to clean water, malnutrition prevention, and medical care.

Community Development

Our development approach to poverty alleviation seeks to address important community issues through a Biblical, holistic, and participatory process. This process involves working closely with community members to identify their strengths and assets, as well as the challenges they face, and to develop solutions tailored to their specific needs and contexts.

We believe one of the best ways to help communities with poverty alleviation is through training and offering scholarships. We do this through the training of trainers, as we have done through CHE Training in both Gabon and the Democratic Republic of Congo, through educational scholarships, and sewing training for widows and needy women.
