Thanks to a grant from the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League (LWML) young women are continuing to learn vital skills to support themselves. South East of Lake Victoria Diocese has 10 districts and 62 parishes in and around the areas of Shinyanga and Simiyu regions of Tanzania.
This 6 month program is taught by deaconesses to provide sewing skills and life lessons. They anticipated 50 trainees but 60 came to receive these skills. The young girls bring their babies with them and hold them during lessons tending to their nursing needs.
Future plans are for hostels to be constructed to house the trainees due to the anticipated growth.
Trainees and deaconesses appreciate the support from the LWML that provides them for this ministry and pray for the continuation of the program.
