We are happy to share that 19 women have completed the Women at Risk program in Nazareth, Ethiopia this past December! They have gone all the way through the process of counseling, nutrition education, and job-skills training and have even started their own small businesses. To prepare for the responsibility of owning a business, the women were counseled in goal setting, work ethics, and time management.
All of the women also received medical support and health care for their different needs. Not only do the women receive medical treatment, but their children (24 in all) have received the same care and attention. Along with the children that were already part of the program, 49 children were provided with school fees, school uniforms, and education materials. While all of these children receive tutoring education about a fourth of them receive special counseling, as well.
And the good news continues…
Nineteen NEW women have just been recruited and have started the program! These women have entered the structured counseling program where they participate in devotions, group discussions, individual counseling sessions, and skills training. With each quarter and with your support, we see women enter back in society with dignity and skills to make a better life for themselves, their families, and their communities. And with each graduate, there leaves room for more women at risk to enter into a place of safety and rehabilitation. We can not do this valuable work without your support. Thank you!
Will you be part of seeing nineteen new women graduate in the next quarter? Join us today and as a thank you, we will send you a gift from our store – including a hand-made Ethiopian scarves made by one of the graduating women!
