Over the past 3-4 years, we have been connected and collaborating with four different ministries that reach out and minister to orphans and widows in India and Nigeria.
Our focus on the kids - has been to ensure that the children are fed and given opportunity to attend school. For the women widows and men with disabilities, we encourage our partners to provide them with food, and some skills in addition to any financial assistance or donation of resources such as clothing, blankets, etc. Two of these ministries do well with job skills training for the widows, and young women from very poor villages to encourage them to stay away from prostitution or other vice of men that exploit them. Skills training include: tailoring, pattern designs, and some computer skills when fully funded at $250 per month for trainer to coach several trainees.
