In African countries like Uganda, most women are uneducated, married or betrothed at a young age, abandoned or widowed and are left with the full care of children. These women have all the burden of responsibility for the care and education of their children. Many of these women even care for orphans. Because of the lack of opportunity for the poorly educated, health obstacles and unclean living environments, many women living in Uganda are left in poverty beyond anything imaginable in the United States.
God is Grace is a ministry of Kelly Green Global (KGG) founded to assist women living in third world countries, to help break the cycle of poverty. God is Grace assists these women by allowing them opportunities to raise their level of poverty through their own hard work. This ministry seeks to find sponsors who financially support women in Africa while they are equipped with tools and training that will afford them sustainable careers in their communities. A sponsor agrees to support a woman for one year while the woman selected works hard using the gift of support from her sponsor to build viable businesses which will uphold her and her family.
God is Grace works with nationals to help facilitate direction and instruction to the women while being sponsored. We find the poorest women in the communities who are willing to work. This is done through pastors in local villages. As leaders in their communities, pastors know the people of their villages and their struggles. Our Ugandan staff keep the day to day obligations of this ministry functioning as they work to watch and assist the working women of God Is Grace. Through the successful blending of “opportunity” and “hard work,” we are able to see women continue in their businesses even after sponsorship has ended.
God Is Grace operates under the guidance of an advisory team in the U. S., working alongside of Beth Green, the U. S. Coordinator for God Is Grace. God Is Grace is recognized in Uganda as a non-governmental organization (NGO) and functions with board members who help guide the work in Uganda.
