Sponsored Women of Uganda Receive English Participation Certificates

Under Hope 4 Women's Sponsorship program women are being trained to read and write in English along with their business skills training, spiritual guidance and life enrichment classes.

Bonnie, from Wisconsin just spent three months in Uganda teaching English to women. Each participant in the program received a certificate.
With Bonnie back in the States a Ugandan woman has taken over the English class and the women are enjoying it thoroughly!

Here's what Pastor Ruth of Smile Africa Ministries writes:

Here are pictures of the Certificate Awards for the sponsored women as well as the second class.There was great joy and ululations as the ladies proudly received their certificates.The ladies expressed great confidence and satisfaction for what God has done for them through H4Women.

Sabina and Catharine's statements caught my heart the most.

Catherine said, "God is so great,people study and get Certificates from within Uganda,but ours have come all the way from America." She exclaimed: "God is no respecter of persons,He has loved us the widows with a great love."

Then Sabina spoke next. She said: "Pastor Ruth i am going to frame my Certificate and when i die, my Certificate should be placed on my coffin for every mourner to know that i achieved a certificate in my lifetime. May the Lord bless Rachel and all the people who have supported us to achieve an education."

Okay. THAT makes me cry when I think of how a certificate can bring such dignity to a woman in Uganda. There are many more Catherine's and Sabina's waiting for you to sponsor them. For more information please contact
