Disciples Women returned from their 2017 Woman-to-Woman Worldwide journey to India a few weeks ago. This delegation had the opportunity to visit Global Ministries partners in Durgapur, Malda, Kolkata, and Delhi. There are many stories to be told and a lot of information to share. If you are interested in a visit from one of the members of the delegation you can find the list on the Disciples Women W2WW page. These women are looking forward to sharing their stories and experience with you. You will also hear about the project they have chosen to support for the coming year.
We are also inviting you to be part of a smaller project that would provide for a group of women in Delhi to start a training program for 7-10 women to learn how to sew garments to provide them with income and stability. The project would provide income for 3 months of training and 3 months to begin their business with a plan that will make them self-sustaining after that 6 months. If you would like to participate in providing $6,000 to help these women change their lives, Disciples Women is accepting donations now. If you would like to make a donation, we will send an acknowledgement to the person or group you would like to give the gift on behalf of. Donate Here!

The Woman-to-Woman Worldwide journey (W2WW) is sponsored by the International Disciples Women’s Ministries and administered by the staff of Disciples Women in conjunction with Global Ministries
While the Woman-to-Woman Worldwide journey isn’t a ‘hands-on’ mission, it does offer a way to respond to the call for church women to experience solidarity with one another, to affirm the unity of the church in Jesus Christ, and to join the common struggle for justice and peace in the world today by educating and advocating for those needs. These international, ecumenical, and personal experiences encourage faithful women to see the world through new eyes and bring that perspective back to their congregation and community. An integral part of the post-journey experience is giving presentations about your experiences and sharing what you’ve learned with others.
This experience will include visits to our in-country partners’ programs and projects that focus on helping to improve the standard of living for marginalized impoverished women and children which in turn will raise the standard of living for their village or town. Upon your return home, you can make a difference by sharing what you have learned with your church and region. By raising funds and awareness and respect for differing cultures, you help to improve the lives of the people you have met.
Woman-to-Woman Worldwide is designed to establish a network of “growing concentric circles of world proportion.” T.J. Liggett
You are invited to participate in this program in a number of different ways.
