SELAH MUSIC ORPHAN EDUCATION INITIATIVE
The Lord gave us a command; a very strong one in the book of Psalms
How long will ye judge unjustly, and accept the persons of the wicked? Selah.
Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy.
Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the wicked.
All through the scriptures we see this responsibility being handed to us as Christians. We have been given a mandate to cater for orphans, less privileged individuals, the sick and marginalized populations in our society. The Grace bestowed upon us by the Almighty Father is not primarily for Self-gratification, but to advance the Kingdom–by transforming and impacting lives.
The Selah Music Orphan Education Initiative (SMOEI) is being established in response to the desire of our Lord Jesus to touch the world with his compassion. Part of the mission of Selah Music Worldwide is to reach out to our society through philanthropic activities.
Being and orphan has very devastating economic, social and psychological results on the individual. Research studies show that every two orphans globally are likely to experience child labour, child slavery, suicide, hunger and extreme poverty just to mention a few, before the age of 18. This is a problem worldwide.
As believers, it is our responsibility to aide and rescue such young and promising children who are in dire need of assistance. If immediate action is not taken, these vulnerable children could fall prey to the devices of the enemy Numerous charitable organizations have been established to fulfil the calling of catering for the less-privileged in the society, however, challenges are also bound to arise. Organizational development comes with an increase in the number of children that the foundation needs to acquire, as well as numerous children with diverse physical and psychological defects
