A joint program of PCUSA World Mission and Presbyterian Women, the Mother’s Day Project is a simple and meaning mission activity that Presbyterians have supported since 2001. This year the program is being broadened from a prior focus on poor African countries to include other countries around the world where Presbyterians work with partner churches helping families struggling in poverty. The program is also transitioning from a focus on health services to include initiatives to empower women and children such as literacy training, primary and secondary education, non-formal education and women’s leadership development. Mother’s Day is May 12 and cards will be made available on Sundays prior to that. Watch for a table set up in the Gathering Space.
