Transforming lives on four continents

BMS creation care projects

BMS World Mission has been carbon offsetting the travel undertaken by its staff worldwide since 2008.

The proceeds of the carbon-offsetting programme are invested in projects that improve the environment, reduce the emission of carbon dioxide and contribute to effective advocacy on climate change issues.

As part of our commitment to creation care we set up a grassroots Eco Challenge Fund project fund and since 2010 BMS workers have been able to propose eligible projects in the countries where they work. Each project needs to meet the exacting standards of the Climate Community Biodiversity Alliance to ensure it benefits the local community and protects wildlife as well as absorbing carbon dioxide.

 

 

Projects that have benefitted from the Eco Challenge Fund include:

 

Saving lives, saving the world in Nepal

 

Rays of hope

 

Eco-ovens (ecofogóns) in Peru.

 

Tree-planting in Chad.

 

An environmental children's project in Brazil.

 

Creation care material for deprived pre-school children across Latin America.

 

Phone chargers and the sunshine gospel
