The Social Economic Development Association (SEDA) program is led by Pastor Francis’ daughter Rachael Ranogwa. It began in 2006 with the goal of creating a micro-loan program for widows since most of them live on less than a dollar a day while raising several children or grandchildren on their own. Over the years it has evolved into a broader holistic ministry with over 68 widows in attendance. These women (affectionately known as “the Mamas”) are encouraged and empowered through weekly fellowship, prayer, worship, small enterprise endeavors, and a savings program. God has done wonderful things in their lives by creating a tight knit “sisterhood” of women who truly care for and love each other. The widows are believing in themselves and gaining respect within the community. God has used this ministry to transform their lives and to give them hope.
