Working in a Rural and Agricultural Community
The community in which Jehovah Jireh Project is situated is largely rural, with most people making very low incomes through agricultural activities.
Jehovah Jireh Project’ activities are targeted toward vulnerable women, particularly widows and those living with HIV/AIDS, as well as vulnerable children, youth, and the elderly.
Jehovah Jireh Project is committed to a development process that promotes equality. Jehovah Jireh Project believes in and strives to uphold the rights and dignity of all people especially in the rural communities. Jehovah Jireh Project upholds principles of stewardship with its resources and is committed to support vulnerable children and disadvantaged people fight poverty, ignorance and diseases such as Malaria and HIV/AIDS.
We have empowered 10 women house hold with knowledge and skills in piggery, weaving and agricultural seeds, as a way of addressing rural poverty and general health issues provided them with a set of basic tools and support to help them get off the poverty trap.

We also had 7 workshops for our clients where 200 women, girls and youth were provided training and individualized instruction in entrepreneurship, marketing techniques for small businesses, micro finance, and the implementation of income generating activities.
