 As we say goodbye to 2014 we want to thank you for your partnership with Hope 4 Women International, our Dress a Girl program and our events!

 

  • Ugandan Women in Business Sponsorship Program:
  • 109 women graduated from our sponsorship program.  
  • 111 women were newly sponsored. 
  • We taught women how to make 2 different types of scarves.
  • We brought feminine hygiene kits & taught women how to make them.  
  • 10 sewing machines were donated to the women's army barracks. 
  • We held 3 spa days & pampered 90 women!

Many of our sponsored women received extra gifts of goats, cows and equipment for operation of their businesses from their sponsors.

 

In Guatemala: We had an afternoon celebrating women and girls teaching them how to make scarves and talking to them about staying safe.

 

Dress a Girl Around the World:  With your great efforts of funding and sewing we supplied over 100,000 dresses to girls in need around the world. We provided safe water by funding our second Dress a Girl well in Uganda.

  • Locally We:
  • supplied dresses within the Phoenix area to girls in need through Angel Tree and through a city-wide outreach in Glendale, AZ.,
  • offered a day at A Place to Dream for homeless children who learned of God’s love, were given horseback riding opportunities, made crafts and ate a good meal. We sent them home with backpacks crammed with food.

We also held a fundraiser tea and a BBQ.

 

What’s Ahead for 2015?

With your help:

  •   We will continue to dress girls around the world
  •   We will expand our women and girls “Keep It Safe” program
  •  We will expand our Women in Business Program to Romanian Gypsies
  •  We will grow our local programs with the homeless and other children living in poverty
