Give a Gift—Provide Them with God’s Love
Any of these gifts can bring value, hope and love to women—and also to their families. You can help a woman and her family break the cycle of poverty while also giving a tangible expression of Jesus' love for them.
Give gifts that help rescue women from poverty and bring Christ's love.
BioSand Water Filter
Many poor regions of Asia have no source of pure drinking water. Using concrete and sand, these bio water filters remove impurities, providing water for drinking and cooking that is 98 percent pure. For $, help provide pure water in an Asian village—and a chance for them to hear of the living water Jesus offers.
In places like Sri Lanka and South India, where the 2004 tsunami displaced so many lives, and in teeming cities like Delhi and Bombay, the ability to make a decent living often involves vocational training that is beyond the reach of the poor. As a further witness to the Gospel, GFA is teaming up with local churches to offer training in such practical fields as welding, sewing or other basic trades.

Widows and Abandoned Children
Blamed for their husband's death, widows in South Asian society are viewed as cursed and left to fend for themselves. Abandoned children face similar circumstances and are forced to provide for their own livelihood. These precious women and children need to hear that Jesus loves them. The Widows and Abandoned Children fund provides GFA-supported missionaries with the means to help these beloved women and children of God.
Hope for Suffering Women

Women's Literacy Program
Women's Literacy Classes Teach Scripture and Skills
Women across South Asia gather each week for literacy classes where they learn reading, writing and math skills. When a woman completes the course, she's able to read warning labels to protect her children and understand contracts to avoid bonded labor. She won't get cheated at the marketplace because she will finally know how to add. And she can read the Bible for herself and teach it to her children.
Empower Women with the Ability to Read
These women must become better equipped to survive in a society that frequently takes advantage of them. Classrooms are available and willing teachers are ready—all these eager students need is a literacy book and something to write on. Please donate toward these effective teaching tools.
