With Thanksgiving Day on the 25th, November is the perfect time to be thankful for all God has blessed us with AND to remember those who need our prayers and our support. November is the perfect time to share our blessings.
Because of this, we are so excited to announce that Mary & Martha is launching a month-long goal with Compassion International to fundraise over $25,000 toward their Young Girls’ Intervention program in Arusha, Tanzania. Starting now and ending on Giving Tuesday, November 30, we are inviting you to be a blessing to these girls with your donation.
In Tanzania, as in many parts of the world, families marry off their daughters as young as 12 to reduce the economic burden on the family, thus threatening the well-being and future of these young girls with no further education or hope. Due to the pandemic, this situation has been made even more dire. This Young Girls’ Intervention will use the power of education and the love of Jesus to give hope to these precious daughters living in Arusha.
At 11 years old, Winnie’s mother tried to have her enter an arranged marriage. But with the church’s help, Winnie was protected and enabled to continue her education. Now 16, Winnie hopes to become a teacher. That is one story; just think of so many more young women that will have a similar one when you support this project!
Personally, I am so thankful for Mary & Martha’s partnership with Compassion International as we work together to release children from poverty in Jesus’ name. November is an amazing opportunity for YOU to join us in giving to help these young girls in need this Thanksgiving season.
