r.o.i. Design has been blessed with more than 20 years of business and 100’s of customers. But sometimes at the end of the year, we wish we had more. More so we could give to all the non-profits we have worked for, supported and otherwise respected over the years.
Our heartfelt greeting goes out to all these groups and hoping that in some small way our voice of support will make a difference and influence others to seek you out, learn how you love, and give the best gifts they can.
This year especially on our hearts is a project that our associate Ken Watkins of Architectural Concepts has been working on since 2012.
The name of the organization is Zoe Waters. Their website is www.zoewaters.org, and they also have a Facebook page with the same name. They started in Kenya, but are currently active with projects in northern Kenya, Tanzania, and India.
The idea for Zoe Waters came about as the result of a short-term mission trip to Northern Kenya sponsored by Cornerstone Church (Caledonia, Michigan) in 2011. This team was not only able to witness first-hand the very real needs in this area of the world (both spiritual and physical), but also to start to meet some of these needs with the “Zoe Waters” methodology. This methodology included the pairing of the audio gospel distribution with the provision of a village water well, all in conjunction with local pastors and missionaries who can continue to provide spiritual support to these previously unreached tribes.
