“A religion that is pure and stainless according to God the Father is this: to take care of orphans and widows who are suffering, and to keep oneself unstained by the world.” — James 1:27

 


Requirements for women to be included in The TESFA Project and receive life-giving micro-grants:

  • She is a widow with children suffering from chronic hunger.
  • She does not receive support from other organizations.
  • She is sponsored by her local church.
  • She participates in our education and training program.
  • She agrees with the policies of Petros Network’s Tesfa Development Program (Savings program, tithing, mentoring other women).

What the women in The TESFA Project are offered through your sponsorship:

  • She is provided education that deals with common problems of health, nutrition, management of household money, financial services and micro-businesses.
  • She is given instruction in life skills, family care, and parenting.
  • She joins a community of women supported and directed on a weekly basis to achieve a sustainable, self-help end to world hunger through micro-funding.
  • She is given a mentor to walk alongside her to initiate a significant world view shift from a life of chronic hunger and poverty.
  • She, and her entire family, is supported spiritually by her local church family.
  • She is taught how to start a savings plan from her earnings so she can change the chronic cycle of poverty in her family.
  • One of our eligibility requirements is the widow must have children. Your sponsorship not only changes her life, but impacts her children’s lives too. We are often asked about giving extra for children’s school uniforms and supplies. When you “check out” your cart lists additional ways you can assist a family.
