About Our Partner
In most African churches, women and children are the majority. Per their request, The Outreach Foundation has been supporting and encouraging women in Africa through the Women's Ministries in Africa project. Tumekutana, which means “we have come together,” is a conference of Presbyterian women leaders from Africa who gather to support each other and to unite with the global church. The Outreach Foundation supported Tumkekutana in Ghana in 2015 and will do so again in 2018. Improving and empowering women changes and improves indicators related to children, communities, churches, and societies. In addition to bringing women together for encouragement and training through Tumekutana, this project supports small income-generating projects that enable women to be self-reliant, take care of their families, and help the community at large. Increased self-reliance helps to reduce poverty and to expand the work of the church. Please come alongside African Christian women in their effort to impact their communities with the Gospel of Jesus. Through this project, we have supported women in Rwanda, Zambia and Zimbabwe for income-generating activities.
Indicators such as poverty and infant mortality levels improve visibly with improvements to the women’s condition in many African countries including Zambia, Zimbabwe, Kenya, Rwanda, and Ethiopia.
The Outreach Foundation is seeking gifts totaling $20,000 for women’s conferences, training, retreats, and small income-generating projects.
