The Women of Transformation Ministry
Ethiopia: Transformation Love seeks to reach out to women who are desperate, have no voice and are in need of help to break away and start anew. One of the ways we partner is to help train and equip the local volunteers for ministering to the women.
"Speak up for the people who have no voice, for the rights of all the down-and-outers.
"Speak out for justice! Stand up for the poor and destitute!" Proverbs 31:9 (The Message)
One of our past projects was to reach out to women who have been rescued from a life of prostitution and are being led in Truth and trained in business such as sewing, beauty salon, farming, cooking, and coffee service… so that they may learn to be free, leaving a life of sin and slavery and living life to its fullest as Jesus intended. Following training and apprenticeship, we made grants and micro-loans available to these women so that they can get their businesses started.
Our newest initiatives is seeking to find jobs by creating Income Generating Activities (IGA) for the mothers of our sponsored children. We have begun an injera business, allowing mothers to come to our property and use industrial equipment to bake and then go out and sell injera to local businesses. Others are opening and beginning coffee shops and markets. We are constantly looking for new ways to provide income opportunities for our families.
Transformation Love provides jobs wherever possible for the parents of our sponsored children. We currently employ a father as the guard on our compound and two mothers serve as housekeepers and cooks for our ministry.
How can you help? We gladly accept donations to support the ministry to women like these with extreme gratitude. We invite you to join us on a mission trip to Ethiopia to minister to women in need.
