Widows & Orphans Service: India
Widows = The Least of These
Esther Movement has partnered with Cornelia and Dorcus House in Kolkata, India. Cornelia shepherds and serves over 80 widows in a large slum on the outskirts of Kolkata. In India when your husband dies, you are most often left to fend for yourself, being rejected by both your in-laws and your parents. Due to the prevalence of child marriage, many of these widows are still in their twenties raising their small children on their own. You can help!
Will you share what you know?
If God has placed it on your heart to minister to women worldwide we are very glad to meet you. Our mission is to act as a bridge to this and many other ministries to give women in the US—those who feel there is more for them to do—opportunities to share their gifts and talents.
Can you sew?
Cornelia offers sewing workshops to her widows as a way to empower them to earn an income. We have been invited to participate in her classes and engage the women in simple sewing projects. Great skill is not needed. Just big hearts.
Dorcus House runs a preschool for the children that live in the slum, and we can help with crafts and simple games. Language barriers melt away as beads are strung on pipe cleaners and coloring pages are decorated with stickers. We promise you'll fall in love with their precious these precious kids.
