Covenant Women’s Fellowship – Kitale, Kenya

Covenant Women’s Fellowship was founded by four women of Covenant City Church in June 2006. The fellowship has continued to grow as the church membership increased. CWF meets for prayers an studies God’s Word in addition to initiating the humanitarian support programs listed above.

The two business endeavors not only provide work and food, they are also a source of income. The money generated is used for clothing, school uniforms, shoes, and basic necessities for the orphan children. It also supplies the HIV/AIDS widows with medication, clothing and food that cannot be grown locally.

God’s Word to Women has seen these projects and can vouch for the integrity of those in oversight. ALL of any help you give will go where you specify with nothing held back for administrative costs.

The Covenant Women’s Fellowship (CWF) has two basic projects. One is aimed at the HIV/AIDS positive widows and their children and orphaned children, the other is for the financial empowerment of women.
