Widows and Women at Risk Rescue & Project Ministry

Rescuing Lives rescues widows and women at risk of trafficking, severe poverty, and homelessness. With the help of our supporters, we can offer them hope for a future through education and training in Sewing Micro-Enterprise, Cooking, Cosmetology, and Business Training.

Widows and Women at Risk with Children

Many of the women have children; of which, are at greater risk of being homeless, living in severe poverty in the slums or streets, or trafficking. Women with children are also oftentimes 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. The Widow’s Project is focused on providing care for these widows from near-death situations and severe poverty by educating and empowering them with skills that they can use to survive and provide for themselves and their children. As they attend school, we help by providing housing and care for their children until they can get an education in a trade and begin providing for themselves. 

Young Widows

A lot of the widows are surprisingly very young and have barely begun their adult lives by the time they have become widowed. Oftentimes these young women feel that they have no way out except through death or are at extremely high risk of working in red-light districts in prostitution. 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.
