Programs: Zimbabwe the work in zimbabwe is two-fold. Work began by offering pastor and leadership training to those ministering in the local churches. Seminars are offered giving practical biblical teaching that addresses the everyday needs and concerns of those leading the churches. Early on one of those issues was the growing number of orphan and double orphan children brought on by hiv/aids. The our kids (ok) program was established to assist the communities in caring for these children. Cwo assists with school fees, food, offering counseling, finding care givers and training caregivers in dealing with bringing children into their homes. There are currently 300 children in the ok program.
haiti in 1978, cwo began working in haiti. Cwo currently partners with eight churches, operates two feminine training centers (ftc), has a childrens feeding program and runs a health and nutrition center. Cwo partners with the eight churches offering church and leadership development so they can minister in their communities. A leadership conference and great discovery camps are two opportunities for learning each year. The ftc offers vocational training to women in sewing, cosmetology, cooking and baking, and crafts so that they can provide for themselves and their families.
burkina faso cwo has developed a vocational training center for young ladies called the village of opportunity (voo). The goal of the voo is to provide classes in sewing, cosmetology, french, english, business, agriculture and bible so the young ladies can improve their lives and the lives of those in their villages. Agriculture is taught using shade structures and some new drip irrigation farming which also provides food for the students. The newest addition to the program is a chicken project to be used for education purposes and also raise funds to support the voo. Cwo has also developed a mobile clinic to offer medical attention to those in remote villages where there is little or no medical care offered.
