Women Empowerment at Project 1

I'm very excited to announce that our women empowerment program has begun at Project 1.  Ten women are going through life skill training and have chosen hair dressing as the skill that they would like to learn.  Messeret Kelayu is a professional hair dresser in Addis and she is training these ten women to have a career like hers.

You can imagine what this means for these ten women.  They are given a new beginning.  They have children, no husbands, and what looked like a hopeless future just got brighter.  They are learning to care for themselves.  They are able to learn a trade.  At the same time, they are given the support of nine other women walking through similar situations.  Most of these women are orthodox, and are now hearing the Gospel for maybe the first time. Please be praying for these ten women.  Pray for God's mercy on their life, His protection over their families and His favor on their new direction.
