Adopt A Widow

THANK YOU for your desire to adopt a widow in Burundi, Africa. This program has been designed in partnership with Adopt A Widow and Tirzah International, a registered 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization for U.S. tax deduction purposes. With your help, a widow can complete a 1-year sewing program to learn a skill to support herself and her children and receive a daily meal, food to take home to her children, literacy training if needed, counseling, and a sewing machine of her own. Once you adopt a widow, you will be sent a receipt, bio and photo of the widow, and follow-up progress reports. Any excess funds given will go toward a compassion fund to help the widows as needed with medical costs, rent, children’s school fees, and future program startups.
