Costa Rica – Women Forging New Paths
GoalThe purpose of this goal is to provide 30 scholarships for women in Costa Rica.
SummaryThis project seeks to raise $5,868 to improve women’s self-esteem and promote healthy relationships in their families and communities.
DescriptionInternational Ministries seeks to provide 30 scholarships for women in Costa Rica to take two basic courses, “Being a Woman is Wonderful” and “Healthy Relationships,” over the course of a year. These courses are designed to improve women’s self-esteem and promote healthy relationships in their families and communities.
Celia attended the Pastoral Care for Women courses on a scholarship. In the “Being a Woman is Wonderful” class, she learned that God values her, and that with God’s help she could face life’s challenges and even have her own dreams. In the second course, Celia learned valuable lessons on building healthy relationships with her husband and children. Her self-confidence has grown, her family relationships have improved and she is committed to help other women in her community.
Suggested GiftsA gift of $70 provides a scholarship for one course.
$140 provides a one-year scholarship for both courses.
$275 offers two full scholarships.
Prayer RequestsPlease pray that these courses will result in long-term benefits for each woman's family and her community.
