This summer, I have an opportunity to be a part of Woman to Woman— a group of life coaches, teachers, artists, mothers, daughters, engineers, entrepreneurs and more who are coming together to form a team that will inform, uplift, and learn from women in Rwanda. The trip will be led by Amena Brown and Latasha Morrison. I consider this to be a once-in-a lifetime opportunity to learn from amazing women (on the trip and in Rwanda) and have a life-changing experience while experiencing a slice of Africa for the first time.
Rwanda is a country that knows genocide and violence, but the Rwandan people also know healing, reconciliation and rebuilding. To lead in the work of love, healing, and justice, Black American women and Rwandan women are in a unique position to learn from and equip each other and the universal church.
We will spend our time in Rwanda facilitating reciprocal learning workshops about self-esteem with young women from the boarding school and entrepreneurial exchange sessions with the Africa New Life women by offering entrepreneurship and practical skills training to ensure the viability of their businesses which will support their families and the entire community.
But none of this can happen without your help!
Many of you have wondered what you can do to support the work of justice and community-building. This is an opportunity to recognize and support the work of Black women here in America and abroad in Rwanda to build strong communities, know their roots and be equipped as leaders, students, and entrepreneurs.
$3727.50 covers the trip of each participant. Please pray and ask God how He would like you to support this initiative. We are thankful for all gifts, large or small and, of course, your contribution is tax deductible. Through your financial support, you will be an integral part of this trip. I can't wait to share this life-changing journey with you.
Any money raised above and beyond the goal will be used to sponsor more women in Africa New Life vocational training programs.
Thank you for your support of Africa New Life and Woman to Woman!
