Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Chocolate works with women one on one to help them learn basic life skills, goal setting and provides spiritual enrichment in order to achieve their full potential.
She keeps a shed stocked with basic supplies to meet physical needs and provides transportation to classes, work, the grocery store, and doctor appointments.
Chocolate disciples several women with the hope God will raise other leaders in the Bonton community to work along-side her in ministry. Chocolate ministers around the clock when women are in in crisis. She meets them in their darkest hours, sheds God's light on them, and shares His steadfast love.

The strategy for Redeemed Women in the next year is to secure a home in the community to serve as a headquarters for the ministry. It is imperative that it is within walking distance as most women do not have transportation. In this space she plans to provide various classes, work programs, and activities designed to bring women together and build a support network.

Redeemed Women is raising funds through private donations and campaign initiatives to meet our goals of providing a space, transportation and to cover administration costs.

So far, funds have been raised toward the purchase of space, but it is still an ongoing campaign. Once we have achieved this goal, the next purchase will be transportation (van) as well as covering administrative costs for those purchases (i.e. taxes, insurance, etc.)
