2017 Pennies Project - ELCA Good Gifts
Our ELCA provides an opportunity for our NC SWO to make a huge difference, not only in the lives of women and children, but with an entire village in a developing country.
Our goal is to raise enough money through our coin collection to purchase a well ($2500) and a farm ($715).
FARM: A cow, a couple goats, a dozen chicks, two pigs, farming tools, seeds and agricultural training and support, for example, can
help a family achieve a fresh start. With new tools and techniques, crops will grow stronger than ever. Eggs, milk and meat from the farm animals provide a lifetime of food to eat and sell on the market, helping a family escape the cycle of hunger and poverty – for good.
WELL: With the installation of a water well, or spring
box, as many as 500 families gain access to clean, safe water.
We have several trained leaders to present this educational program promoting racial justice to your group. Call and find out how easy it is to set up a presntation for your group.
The following list includes some of the outreach ministries of the NC Synodical Womens Organization (NC SWO). Our congregational units are involved in many more. These and many other ministries are initiated by NC SWO Committees. See the Committee Page for updates on current activities.
