THE OPPORTUNITY: NEW SKILLS, NEW LIFE, NEW FUTURE
New Prospects: Feeding the Body
Each year, 90 women are trained through Africa New Life Ministries’ vocational training programs through the New Life Family Center. These women come from a variety of challenging life experiences: many are HIV-positive, single mothers, windowed, in abusive situations (or emerging from them), and all are poor.
New Skills: Feeding the Mind
The vocational training programs offer these vulnerable women the opportunity to learn tailoring or cosmetology, vital skill offering a future of employment and the chance to escape poverty.
New Lives: Feeding the Spirit
While a marketable skill is the aim of the training, transforming lives is the goal of the vocational training program. Weekly devotions are an ongoing part of the vocational training program. This emphasis on Christian principles results in many women giving their lives to Christ each year through the program.
New Future: Feeding Hope
Graduates of Africa New Life’s vocational training program include a woman who started her own co-op with other graduates, women who have started their own businesses in Kigali, and many others employed throughout the city.
The 90 women trained each year through New Life Family Center are in need of regular support. $60 per month helps to support the women in this program. If you are interested in supporting the women at the New Life Family Center, please donate now.
