PNW A: Widows with Children
All of our widows have children, most of whom are unable to go to school because they spend their days gathering food and water. As funds are raised we will sponsor a micro-grant, provide school uniforms for her children, and give the family an immediate boost of financial support. We interview every widow, typically young mothers, make a house visit, and verify they are the poorest of the poor. We are reaching into villages that have not received ANY KIND of support from any organization. Many of these mothers earn less than $5 USD a month.
Other ways to get involved:
Women’s Development Center: The Women’s Center provides for support, employment, and business / life skill training
Widow’s Childrens Fund: Basic needs
Basic Home Supplies: Basic home supplies of blankets, pots/pans, rocket stove, some clothing
Home Building: Build or remodel a widow’s home to basic living levels. ($3100 builds an entire home)
Unsponsored Widow’s Fund: An emergency fund for widows waiting to be sponsored
Widow’s Operational Funds: Support staff to meet the needs of widows
EVERY GIFT HELPS! You can choose to sponsor a widow by giving a full micro-grant or giving towards her need on a one-time or monthly basis.
Micro-Grant: $600 to $1200 one time or monthly gift
