Once a widow is selected to participate in the program, she is put into a small group with other women in the program. Once a week they meet with a committee member and go through the discipleship curriculum together. Often, the families and communities join those women in fellowship, Bible study, and prayer. This allows for strong community to be built and a safe place for these women to share together and be encouraged by the church.
Women in the program are provided with a monthly food package. This food package includes high quality posho (a staple food of Uganda), beans, rice, sunflower oil, and eggs from BAM Enterprises. This not only meets the immediate physical needs, but allows for the women to then save the money they’d have otherwise spent on food.
