We are happy to announce that The Widows in India Status and Empowerment Project is expanding, with a new home under a new roof! Our partner YWAM Trichy has completed a new NHM Ministrants Center in Tiruchirappalli (in Tamil Nadu, Southern India). Rather than use a large commercial construction company, they were thrifty, hiring over 40 local day laborers to complete the project.
In other excellent news, Rev. A. Marimuthu writes, “All of the widows who have graduated from the program have successfully been able to make school uniforms for children in the area. We are currently working on expanding our job placement program to include a course on entrepreneurship, a seminar on micro-lending for small businesses, and paid internships with local tailors. We hope to continue to provide all the help and assistance we can to this important effort. As Jesus once said, “As I have loved you, love one another” (John 13:34).” We wish our partners in India Godspeed!
