After being inspired to do something with resources that were readily available, in his African community, Solomon began a brick making business with the dirt from termite mounds.

He reached out to men from the village who were struggling with addiction to offer them work opportunities and a pathway to hope. Together they began to make bricks . . . thousands of them. They made enough to donate for the building of two churches and schools. Many of his employees have transformed their lives, advanced their careers as local youth director, finance director, loan officer, and become respected leaders in their community. As an established brick making cooperative, Solomon’s business is multiplying growth in the community. They created over 90,000 bricks and made the equivalent of $10,000 USD, which they are using as small loans to help other community members start their own businesses. Families are being lifted out of poverty with new confidence and dignity.
