The Women of Grace Church are partnering with ALARM (African Leadership and Reconciliation Ministry) to offer a three-year women's leadership training program for women in Rwanda.
ALARM has selected 40 key female leaders representing each province in Rwanda. This group will gather two times a year, over a three year cycle. These conferences equip women leaders from different denominations and tribes with a practical working understanding of the Bible, theology, discipleship, leadership, trauma recovery and counseling, and communication. Once trained, these women take their newly developed skills and knowledge to then lead, train, disciple and mentor other men and women in their churches and communities.
When you invest in a leader, the positive impact is multiplied across their communities and the country of Rwanda.
WHY ARE WE SO EXCITED?
ALARM recognizes the key role that women play in positively transforming their communities. The saying “educate a woman and you educate a community” has been tried and tested over and over again.
Women across the continent of Africa have often been marginalized and sidelined as a result of socio-cultural beliefs, political circumstances and traditionally patriarchal leadership systems that have excluded them. However, the resilience and strength of many of these women, despite extreme hardship, is creating vital space for them to play a significant role in the transformation of Africa through leadership, economic development, peace building and self-sufficiency.
We truly believe that investing in these women will not only transform the spiritual climate and legacy of Rwanda, but will also reach Africa and the world.
