Widow's Might - $65 a month.
This program started in January 2018. Because these communities are polygamous, when the husband dies he often leaves behind several wives and multiple children. These women are frequently preyed upon due to their vulnerability. The Widow's Might program seeks to instruct, encourage and empower these women by providing food assistance each month, 5 goats in the first year (to help them start their own self sustaining herd), skill training, and Bible instruction. This is meant as a 2 year program, whereby at the end, these women will be equipped to provide for themselves and their families and no longer be vulnerable.
