"If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together." -African Proverb
African women are strong and courageous, working tirelessly to care for their children. Transformed for Life believes in supporting these strong women so that they can in turn pour back what they have learned and received into their families. Transformed for Life has community development programs. In these programs, we have Bible studies and focus on talking and training about the challenges that these women face as well as teaching them important life and agricultural skills. Focus areas for these programs include: trauma, abuse, domestic violence, health, nutrition, family, parenting, marriage, conservation, business, and agriculture. When possible, we also bring in police or other organizations to help connect them to service providers and to better understand their rights.
