Last fall, Partners With Ethiopia funded FOVC Widow’s Hope Crop Program. Thanks to the generosity of our amazing donors, 71 women have been enrolled in the program! Through the program they received tools, seed, and fertilizer to help them get started, along with agricultural education and mentoring. The women are growing things like maize (corn), onions, beans, sweet potatoes, white potatoes, teff (Ethiopia’s traditional grain crop), and other crops.
Self-sustainability is an important aspect of this program — stepping stones to independence. These single mothers are able to provide better nutrition for their families and generate an income for themselves. They become economically independent, and gain the self-respect that comes from helping themselves.
Our team is excited to visit with these women next month and hear firsthand how things are going for them!
We want to continue to provide self-sustainable income generating opportunities for women in southern Ethiopia. Empowering women preserves families. If you want to partner with us in our efforts, consider a one-time or monthly donation to our general fund, which will provide us with the funds we need to administer these important programs. www.give2pwe.org
