I believe we live in an incredible world, one where the beauty of change through the empowerment of others is possible. I want to continue doing my part to make it an even better place by empowering individuals around the world to be educated and learn life long trades.
SOWING SEEDS Of LOVE
educating & empowering women and children
A Note From Lindsey
TO LOVE PEOPLE WHILE PROVIDING RESOURCES THAT EMPOWER WOMEN & CHILDREN THROUGH EDUCATION, JOB & SKILL TRAINING INITIATIVES.
In 2011, founder Lindsey Parry packed up her life into two 50 lbs. suitcases and headed out to follow her calling. She moved to the country of Panama with the intention to increase her understanding of the local culture, advance her Spanish speaking, build relationships and establish credibility within the community. All of this helped to create the perfect foundation to move forward with the seed of an idea that God had planted on her heart---to launch a non-profit that gave individuals the opportunity to be educated.
What started out as two educational classes and a reading program at the local orphanage has turned into something much greater.
It has given the women and children a zeal for life. Sowing Seeds of Love's vision was much more than to show up and teach classes. Lindsey has a love that is infectious for these women and children. They are her family and she is constantly coming up with ways to uplift and empower each of them in their personal walk of life.
SSOL and Lindsey have been blessed with an incredible support team, family/friends, volunteers and mission groups that come from all around the world. She readily acknowledges, We wouldn't be where we are today without the love and generosity of everyone involved.
SSOL has long-term and full time volunteers that run our programs at both orphanages.
We've also had the opportunity to work with a number of volunteer and mission groups from around the globe to build, paint, and create a loving and happy atmosphere for the people of Panama.
Our groups have re-painted the orphanages, built a separate dormitory for the teenage moms of Casa Hogar Trisker, outfitted a new kitchen at the orphanage, built an obstacle course, installed bookshelves and cabinets, and built a black top for kids to play at the orphanage. These are just a few of the things God has blessed us with providing for these women and children. Best friend, board member and faithful SSOL supporter Shanna Covey stated:
Currently SSOL supports Casa Hogar Trisker (young boys and girls orphanage) and the Ngäbe-Buglé tribe. We provide educational classes and training to develop lasting trade skills.
*SSOL is a 501c3 non-profit based in the USA, serving in the country of Panama. We are blessed to have an incredibly supportive board of directors.
