In my short trip, I had time to initiated ministry opportunities with the Maasai community in Namanga, Kenya. As you know, we work with indigenous peoples, and at the right time, God has allowed us to engage one more community. Pray that we will make a significant impact in Kenya as we continue with the other countries as well.
On March 19, I was honored to officially launched a Women Empowerment Program (WEP) in Kigali city to provide education and training to disadvantaged indigenous women so that they can gain better opportunities for small businesses and employment. Sixteen ladies have registered for the classes, but they could not attend the launch due to Covid-19 restrictions. We have started with four sewing machines and we hope to increase to twelve.
At this time, our staff and church partners are helping struggling families. We are engaged in the following:
1). Hygiene promotion to communities through our teams and partners on the ground.
2). Provide soap, water, water barrels, and hand sanitizers.
3). Provide food and clean water.
Thank you for your prayers and continued support. Every support towards supporting indigenous people at this difficult time is highly welcome.
