Vocational Training

VOCATIONAL TRAINING

With little education and no job skills, many women – particularly single mothers – must beg or scavenge to provide for themselves and their families. Samaritan's Purse provides training and equipment for sewing, food service, and other productive livelihoods.

Exploitation

EXPLOITATION

We provide help to women in desperate situations, including victims of exploitation and sex trafficking. We work with Christian partners to protect vulnerable women and restore victims of exploitation. More 

Gender Based Violence

GENDER-BASED VIOLENCE

Samaritan’s Purse trains pastors and ministry leaders on how to counsel and rehabilitate victims of gender-based abuse. We teach men and women how to live together in a God-honoring way to prevent further cases, and provide biblical materials and other support for educational programs conducted by church partners.

Literacy

LITERACY

A quality education can lift marginalized women out of the cycle of poverty, equipping them to support themselves and their families. Samaritan’s Purse works with Christian partners around the world to provide women with education opportunities. More 

Maternal Child Health

MATERNAL/CHILD HEALTH

Obstetric supplies, medicine, vitamins, and specialized training are among the ways we improve the well-being of pregnant women and mothers of newborns in remote villages and impoverished communities. This fills a critical gap in healthcare, provides peace of mind for young mothers, and helps save the lives of women and babies.
