Business Training = Changed Lives

For the past several years Caroline's Promise has partnered with Iglesia Adonai to host sewing classes for women in the community.  We call the program "Threads of Promise" because of the opportunities it provides.  Through the three month discipleship and skills training classes the women experience community and begin to understand just how much God adores them.  They sell the product that they make and we match their earnings.  At graduation they receive a new sewing machine and a women's devotional Bible.

From the beginning our dream was to offer  business training for these women but we could never find the right curriculum.  Last year the Lord led us to Yobel International, a Colorado based ministry that empowers communities to eliminate extreme poverty, unjust labor and human trafficking through business training and consumer education.  Yobel has developed an interactive, discussion-based Entrepreneurial Training Curriculum and we are excited for the opportunity to purchase a license and train our friends in Guatemala.

Our plans are to conduct our first training in the Spring of  2016.  The cost for each woman to attend the training is $250.  We are looking for 35 sponsors or a total of $8750 make this training a reality.  Will you consider joining us?  Any donation is greatly appreciated!  Follow this link to join us!

If you would like to join us on this team please touch base with us as soon as possible!  We are looking for a small team of men and women who are comfortable leading a small group in this business training setting.  We will train you on the curriculum!  Dates of this will be determined soon but we are looking at February or March.  Cost is $1000 plus airfare.  Contact LisaHolbrook@carolinespromise.net or at 336-669-7340.
