In my last post, Hermanas en Cristo , I mentioned we were donating 10% of all sales to a scholarship (beca) program for the women in the group and their daughters. We are super excited to announce that…
WE HAVE OFFERED SCHOLARSHIPS TO FOUR OF THE WOMEN IN OUR GROUP!!! They will be starting school in January!
Allow me to introduce our recipients:
Rosa is a wife and mother of 3. She will be studying English. Rosa would love to work as a translator for mission teams.
Yine is a wife and mother of 3. She will be studying Pyschology. This has been a dream of hers for many years.
Ruth graduated from high school in June. She will be studying Languages and Tourism. She hopes to work within the Dominican Republic with tourist and as a translator.
Yaselis is still in high school. She will be studying English on Saturday. She wants to work with the mission teams as a translator.
We cannot be more proud of these 4 ladies, and, also, all of the women in the group. THEY made this happen! Talk about empowerment! These women continue to meet each week to strengthen their faith and understanding of the Bible, encourage one another, and better themselves, each other, and their community. It is seriously a blessing and honor to be part of this group and to see it grow and strengthen! I truly feel that God is opening more opportunities globally for these women in 2017.
Remember, these scholarships are available because 10% of all jewelry sales are donated to our scholarship program. If you would like to partner with these women, you can do so by:
- Praying for them. Pray that God continues to capture their hearts and that they continue to serve Him, their families, and their community.
- Continuing to purchase their products. Their paper bead jewelry is not only beautiful, it is also functional and affordable.
- Donate. If you are interested in being a financial partner, please click the “donate” button at the right side of this page. All donations are tax deductible.
