Give to Women of Purpose
As women in North America, we are extraordinarily blessed. Most of us have ample food, shelter, and access to education. As a Woman of Purpose, your monthly donation of $35 will bring life, opportunity and hope to women and children.
Pray for the women and children we serve
Pray for our work with the poor and vulnerable, and that those we serve should experience the love of Christ through our help. Please ask others in your circle of influence to pray too.
