Adopt A Widow

An estimated 1 in 4 women in Sub-Saharan Africa is a widow--due to HIV/AIDS, war and poverty. And many of these widows are young with young children. Just $86 a month for 12 months, or $43 a month to share in adopting a widow, pays for her training, a daily meal, food to take home to her children, literacy training if need, and sewing machine of her own. Won't you adopt a widow with your gift?
