Women’s Empowerment: A Mother’s Day Missions Initiative

Standard

In America, most mothers ask, “What should I feed my children today?” But in many countries where Convoy of Hope serves, mothers have to ask, “Which one of my children can I feed today?”

This Mother’s Day we’ll be taking a special missions offering for Convoy of Hope’s “Women’s Empowerment” movement that is based on the same concept as “One Day To Feed The World.”  What does that mean you ask? We’re glad you asked.  One Day to Feed the World is where individuals are challenged to give up one day’s salary to bless someone else in need.  When you give up a day’s salary you will empower women in El Salvador, Ethiopia, Honduras, Kenya, Nicaragua, the Philippines and Tanzania to make strategic, independent life choices through community-based training in peer-oriented cooperative savings groups and non-traditional micro-enterprise development. When you do this, Convoy of Hope is able to facilitate sustainable income-generating activities and entrepreneurial thinking that equips women to make positive choices for themselves and their families in the areas of health, education and economic welfare.
