Widow Training Grants
Fund the training to teach these women the work skills and financial management to establish and manage a small business such as baking, soap making, sewing, subsistence farming, and petty-trading which can sustain their needs and those of their families. We have an arrangement with an entrepreneurial and co-operative education agency in Nigeria to train them at a subsidized rate.
$30 will train one person.

  Small Business Grant Fund
Once the training program is completed, we hope to help these skilled widows realize their new potential with small business grants to help them on the road to self-sufficiency. Lack of collateral and high interest rates make the standard business loan start up option inaccessible to them.  A donation of any amount will help this fund grow.

Educational Grants
To help the next generation rise from the poverty and despair into which they were born, this education grant program will enable these innocent children have some basic education by funding their elementary through high school fees.
This grant approach is not intended to be inclusive of all expenses (e.g., uniforms, books, health, higher education and other educational needs). Awards will be given on the basis of merit and excellence. We have currently identified about 50 of these children in need of assistance through sponsorship.

$150 will sponsor a child's basic school fees for one academic year.
