So, we just began this new relationship with an amazing nonprofit, Extending Hands, that is providing opportunities for widows and vulnerable women in Zambia – and we’d like to give them a little TWG shout out on this fine Thursday.
Founded by Kristin Choitz, a wife and mother of two, Extending Hands is making a difference in some of the most desperate situations. Extending Hands was built to help these Zambian woman earn a sustainable living wage through the use of their talents and gifts. Extending Hands gives them a place to create goods and products and then helps them market and sell them throughout the world.
Through this, these Zambian widowed and vulnerable women are empowered, loved and given that sense of accomplishment and purpose that drives people to become what God created them to be.
Extending Hands is in the process of expanding the reach of their ministry through a new brand and a new website (that is in the works right now) and we are very excited to be a part of that. But for us, what’s even more rewarding is that, indirectly, we get to be a part of brining these women (many of whom have stories that most of us can not even imagine) an opportunity for a hope and a future.
If you have a passion for the widow and the orphan and the “least of these”, please consider donating to the mission of Extending Hands. Either way, you soul will be filled by reading the stories of the ministry and the women they impact on their blog.
Be sure to RSS Kristin and Extending Hands blog into your feeder at http://www.extendinghands.blogspot.com. Also, be sure to follow them on Facebook to hear about the day to day progress of this ministry as they bring hope and opportunity to Zambian woman.
