Rescuing Lives

Widow's Ministry

Rescuing Lives is establishing a Widow’s Sewing Micro-enterprise Ministry in India. The Widow’s Project is geared towards rescuing widow’s from near death situations and severe poverty.

Some of the widow’s have children; of which, become at greater risk of being homeless, living in severe poverty in the slums or streets, or trafficked.

Widow's MinistryMany of the widow’s are surprisingly very young and have barely begun their adult lives by the time they have become widowed. Often times these young women feel that they have no way out except thru death. Rescuing Lives wants to offer hope to these women by providing a way for them to gain an education and trade in the sewing industry so they can honorably support themselves and their children. When we partner together and provide a way for the widow’s to have a better life and future, their hearts are softened and opened up to receiving and learning so they can have a better future.

Please take the time to click on this link and watch a video of the work that we are doing in India. The video will help give a brief explanation of the some of the customs that apply to widows in India and what widow’s endure.

It only cost $500 to rescue one widow!

This provides for her education & training and a sewing machine that she gets to keep upon graduating the Sewing Micro-enterprise course.
