At an AEBR Church Kayonza in Eastern Province ALARM Rwanda donating goats to support the women initiatives

In the course of Women Leadership Training Institute (WLTI), every participant is expected to produce a report on how she puts into practice what she has learnt previously. In addition to becoming a model of leadership in their communities and churches, the graduates form groups that develop into cooperatives. This serves as an access ministry for them to do the ministry of evangelism, discipleship and community development.

TESTIMONIES

Bishop Elizaphan, after narrating his story life and the story of planting the church  4 years ago from the very beginning and from nothing until they purchased the land the church now owns, he said” I am thankful to ALARM to have thought of what his family and the church needed the most: the food and the “goat project”. The food came at the right time when the family was having difficuties to make ends meet in their every day expenses. The “ goat project” will assist the church holistic approach of evangelism and discipleship through  small groups. And the project will assist us in sustaining the WLTI TOT Regional, in that, the produce of the project may assist in some of the WLTI TOT Regional expenses.

Domitile, “ We have been visiting one another in our women group. It is lovely to think about us and what can give us a start up capital in our creative innovation initiating income generating activities in Agri-husbandy business. It is an encouraging to our women group.”
