Economic development programs include a microfinance program for women to develop businesses in Kenya and work centers in India to assist in the creation of new businesses. Both methods provide opportunities for women to participate in gaining self-sufficiency for their families. Food security programs, like the chicken farming initiative in Ecuador, strive to equip the women of their communities with a means to sustain food production beyond the initial donations of eight chicks.
Also during our visit, a Piper Cherokee Six was being refurbished for service in Belize, and Paul Voorhees from Big River Aviation was installing some avionics in a C182 owned by Canadian Adventist World Aviation missionary Jud Wickwire. We will hear more about his service in a future story.
