Eleos Project – USA
Eleos Project was founded in 2004 by Colorado businessman Mark Purington. In 1999, Mark traveled to Africa and to the countries of South Sudan and Kenya with a team from the church he and his family attended in the suburbs of Denver, Colorado. It was the experience of this trip that inspired what is now Eleos Project. After several subsequent trips to Africa in 2001, 2004, 2005 and 2006, it became very clear that a foundation be established for future long-term work on the African continent.
