Hands of Honor

Empowering girls in West Africa through literacy and training

Hawa was just 12 when she left home to start working as a domestic servant in a large urban city. She was vulnerable and scared until she learned one day about Hands of Honor. Through the program, Hawa learned how to read and write, received vocational training, and now has options for her future. As staff lived out the gospel, Hawa’s life was eternally transformed, and she now belongs to a church family!

Child marriage, child labor, and a lack of education are commonplace experiences for girls in Sahel, West Africa—one of the world’s poorest regions. Hands of Honor (HOH), a church-based program, is committed to providing these girls with a different, hope-filled path. HOH works with local Alliance churches to provide vulnerable girls with community, literacy education, vocational training, and life skills training. HOH has also partnered with La Grace, a counseling and skills training center formerly known as SOS Dialogue, to create a culinary arts program that has equipped over 20 girls with the skills and knowledge needed to find safe employment opportunities in the hospitality and tourism sector of Senegal.

Today there are over 75 participants in the Hands of Honor program. Your gift continues to provide these girls with the opportunity for a better life while expanding the program into other regions of West Africa.
