Widows and Women at Risk Rescue Project
Rescuing Lives rescues widows, women at risk of trafficking, severe poverty and homelessness. Through our Widow’s Project ministry, we are able to offer them hope for a future through education and training in our Sewing Micro-Enterprise and Business Training School.
Widow’s and Women at Risk with Children
Some of the widows have children; of which, become at greater risk of being homeless, living in severe poverty in the slums or streets, or trafficking. The Widow’s Project is focused on rescuing these widows from near death situations and severe poverty and educating and empowering them with skills that they can use to survive and provide for themselves and their children. As they attend the school, we are able to also house and care for their children until they are able to get an education and begin providing for them. Women with children are also often times cast out from their families and communities because of the additional burden that comes along with the loss of a father or husband to provide.
Many of the widows 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. When we partner together and provide a way for the widows to have a better life and future, their hearts are softened and opened up to receiving and learning.
