Servants In Faith and Technology
Phone: (256) 396-2015
SIFAT (Servants in Faith and Technology) is a nonprofit Christian organization that provides training in community development in the difficult places of our world. Christian leaders learn self-help skills for basic human needs including physical and spiritual needs as well as social and economic. The adage, “Give a man a fish and he eats for a day; teach a man to fish and he eats for a lifetime”, is exemplified at SIFAT. Set on a 176-acre farm in rural Lineville, Alabama, the SIFAT campus offers multiple ways for visiting teams to learn, retreat-style, what everyday survival and life are like for most of the world. This is accomplished through an awareness experience known as the Global Village Overnight (look for more information under the “retreats” section of their website). SIFAT sponsors mission trips to Ecuador, Bolivia, Uganda, and Zambia, and they also have work projects in Nigeria, Pakistan, Liberia, and the Ivory Coast that you can support. It is common to see SIFAT strategies backing well digging, local fish farming (equipping and teaching), technological education, and more.
