Not only do they help countless Main Street families with their financial needs, but one Michigan couple is taking the call to help to the world stage.

Ian and Jessica Prukner, of Auburn Hills, MI, had been looking for a meaningful way to give back ever since Ian left a full-time job as a minister at their local church 10 years ago to focus on growing their Primerica business full-time.* Only recently did the right opportunity present itself.

The pair decided to fund the construction of an orphanage through a friend’s non-profit organization, Angel House, which builds orphanages for homeless children across India. “There are so many people we are able to help by doing more,” she said.

The group home is being built in Kashyem, a farming region of approximately 40,000 to 50,000 people that is located on a mountainside just south of the Tibetan and Chinese border. This is an area known to have an abundance of orphaned and abandoned children vulnerable to child trafficking and child labor exploitation and abuse.

The orphanage will rescue a total of 25 boys or girls from the streets and give them a safe home, complete with house parents who are affiliated with a local church.

The children will be able to attend school because they have a permanent address, and they will be provided with new shoes and school supplies. (In India, children aren’t allowed to attend public school unless they have an address.)

The orphans will stay in the orphanage until they reach the age of 18 when they will be transitioned out on a case-by-case base, depending on whether they are going to enter the work force or go to college. Once those orphans leave the home, other orphans will take their place.

“It’s unbelievable to see the dreams that are starting to live because of what we’re doing together,” said Jessica. “I grew up wanting to make an impact — to make a difference. This has become such an incredible avenue to be able to do that. And it’s just the start.”

*The part time opportunity may not be available in all provinces in Canada.

Primerica leader, Asaad Faraj, of Southfield, MI, caught the “charity bug” early on in his career as a business-builder.* He joined Primerica in 1991 and by 2006, Asaad and his wife, Lois, had built a very successful Primerica business and had developed the habit of using a portion of their income to support the ministries and charities close to their heart. Then, Asaad got an invitation he couldn’t refuse.

“About 10 years ago, my pastor’s son invited me to join him on a missions trip to the Dominican Republic,” Asaad says. “I wanted to say ‘no’ because I didn’t feel like the timing was right, but instead, I found myself saying ‘yes.’ What I saw during that trip changed my life. These people had nothing – they didn’t even have regular access to food – yet 20,000 of them came to this dusty field to hear the ministers speak. I remember looking out at them and seeing so much joy.”

Making an Impact
Since that first venture, Asaad has been on a total of 32 missions trips to places around the world and his wife, Lois, and their three children have joined him for many. “Every time we come back from one of these trips, we are even more committed than ever to growing our business so we can help more people,” Asaad says. “On one of our trips to India, we were giving these toys and backpacks to some kids. These are children who are so poor that they’ve never seen a toy before. In fact, they had never even seen a bed before. It was so heartbreaking to see how hesitant they were to pick the toys up, like they expected someone to smack their hand away. We came home from that trip with a much clearer goal of growing our business like never before.”

Travel with Purpose
Over the last decade, Asaad and Lois say they’ve gone to Haiti four times and India four times, as well as to locations in South and Central America. “We’ve seen the poorest of the poor, yet we’ve also seen the results of our impact on them,” says Asaad. “Our success with our Primerica business has allowed us to travel with purpose, to afford to be a blessing to people who truly have nothing, and to share the love of God with families around the world. To us, what we get to do with our income is worth everything it takes to build our business.”
