Dominica is 40 years old.  She is a widow with 3 children and Social Welfare called Neema to see if we could help her.  She has been finding greens in the field to sell on the street from a tub on her head to feed her family.  Yesterday she worked all day and made 3,000 shillings, about $1.50 cents, not enough to feed her family.  She was so grateful that people had come to help that she fell on her knees.  Most Tanzanian women do not want a hand out, they want a hand up.  We can help women like Dominica through the MAP program at Neema Village.  Dominica will be able to start a business with your help.  We have many small businesses from hair dressing to used clothing shops.  The average business cost is $600.  When you help a woman in Africa you not only change her world, you change ours.

Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.
James 1:27 (NIV)
