Helping Widows in Time of Need

Expanded projects

We’re growing! Having completed 5 projects, we’ve learned a lot! While our first small projects were a beginning, our last completed project trained 24 widows. Yes, training time was longer and we employed two trainers. Each graduate received a present of their own machine, plus a gift of sewing supplies created by donations of goods to us, lovingly packed by volunteers. It was our great pleasure to present these and certificates to each graduate. $9,000.00 was the cost for this project.

Widow Connection is blessed that we can sponsor small projects to meet needs in a village, or larger ones. While being a new organization has challenges, we are blessed with flexibility to serve where others may not. This is all possible because of your generosity.



We are raising funds to purchase treadle sewing machine for African villages of widows.
$3000 will provide 6 machines and six months materials and training to initiate this program.
