In 2005 we first presented the idea of the Moses Project to a group of prominent medical and business leaders. In 2006 many of those stepped forward and kicked off the funding to launch the Moses Project.
In the final week of February, 2008, we had a very smal group visiting for a few days with a very specific focus -- capital fundraising for the development of our new training farm. The Moses Project focus has always been to develop rural leaders and the "rural" component is as important as the "leaders" component. We emphasize local solutions for the boys in terms of using local staff and programs and we needed to minimizing the "urban" exposure of the education experience to reduce their propensity to gravitate to towns and cities rather than helping to lead their rural communities in the development process.
In 2008 we were very fortunate to be joined by the and the Alberta Wild Rose Foundation in one time participation on projects. Operations and further development continued to be sponsored by donations from farmers, construction workers, teachers, nurses, students, lawyers and bankers.
NOW we are seeking to raise funds to construct a school and a training workshop right on site on the farm. The target is $200,000. It's not that they couldn't use more money, but this amount would provide the basics required for construction. Beyond that, they will be needing equipment for the shop, desks for the school, etc. But then, Rome wasn't built in a day...
