Day 21 Gift Idea: Educate to Empower Girls

CHICAGO, IL (December 21, 2018) – Throughout the Advent season, Covenant Newswire is highlighting daily gift selections from the CovenantCares giving guide. Through the free annual catalog, Covenanters can partner with brothers and sisters around the globe to give gift donations that will help serve communities and advance God’s work in many areas.

Today we highlight empowering girls through education in the Democratic Republic of Congo. When girls gain skills, knowledge, and confidence they break the cycle of poverty and help strengthen societies.

The school began with the ECC Women Ministries “Educate the Girls” campaign and opened in 2012. The school, which includes a computer lab, equips more than 120 girls to be future leaders of their communities, churches, and schools.

Your donations will provide crucial scholarships, resources, and supplies. This and other missional gift-giving options are available now through CovenantCares Gifts for Mission. Please join us in advancing the mission.
