Disciples Women from the 2017 Woman-to-Woman Worldwide journey to India 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 also took on a short term project to fund a group of women in Delhi who wanted to start a training program for 7-10 women to learn how to sew garments to provide them with income and stability. The project provides 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. Thank you for your generous gifts to support this ministry. Our goal of $6,000 has been exceeded! Thank you for participating in this ministry to support these women in changing their lives.
We will continue to work on the other chosen programs and invite you to support them as well. If you would like to make a donation you can do so here: Global Ministries

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 in-country partners’ programs and projects with a focus on women and children within the context of the Church in Cuba and the U.S.-Cuba relations. Upon returning home, participants are invited to share their experience with their church and region.
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.
