The Two Mustard Seeds Program
Two Mustard Seeds is an education program of Expansion International, a Christian nonprofit working to break the cycles of poverty in Kenya.
Education is a huge part of breaking those chains and makes all the difference in a young person's life. Attending high school teaches them the basics, helps them mature their social skills, and provides opportunities to advance into a career or further their education.
While Expansion has several education programs, this one was birthed out of a beautiful partnership. One of their Kenyan community partners started sponsoring teens to go to high school. Expansion was so inspired by their generosity that they decided every time a student was sponsored that they too would fund a sponsorship, enabling twice as many kids to attend high school. Thus, the Two Mustard Seeds Program was born.
The Two Mustard Seeds Resale Event
The Two Mustard Seeds Resale is a three-day thrift shopping event that takes place in Eagle, Idaho at the Eagle Naz Church. The community comes together to donate gently used clothes, accessories, and home decor, and then volunteers to sort it out and run the event!
All proceeds will go to the Two Mustard Seeds fund that helps make education possible for teens in Kenya. Together we can shop a great bargain and make a difference, so mark your calendars and join us at the Two Mustard Seeds Resale event. We can't wait to see you there!
Education gives hope and direction and keeps children from living on the streets. We believe all children should have the opportunity to attend high school.
Our mission is to enable twice as many Kenyan teens to continue their education through high school by empowering and partnering with Kenyan communities through our matching sponsorships.
We also give the opportunity for women to get plugged into a fun, welcoming environment where they can use their gifts to make a difference.
Our goal is not just to raise funding at our resale, but to also provide a place where anyone can find quality, affordable items. Therefore, we offer local churches gift-vouchers to give out to the most needy in our community.
Our vision for 2 Mustard Seeds was to create sustainable income that would support the 2 Mustard Seeds matching sponsorship program. With the help of a generous donor and the proceeds from our very first sale in 2013, a local home was purchased and renovated, in order to become a rental property. The monthly income from this home creates continued support for education.
We have since acquired two more rental properties and the income generated from all of them provides education assistance that does not rely on year-to-year fundraising.
