The Horn of Praise is Blown - Tanzania

By Rafael Oliviera, TWR Africa
Africa, S&E Africa, Tanzania, TWR Women of Hope

JOYOUS CELEBRATION

Prayer groups, intercessors, the TWR Women of Hope ministry team, and people at large were abuzz. They sang and cheered together celebrating the way God has blessed and used the women’s ministry in Tanzania since its inauguration in 2010. “It has been 11 years of a journey, working faithfully on the ground to minister to so many in Tanzania, with hearts of compassion for women,” said Joyce.

TWR Women of Hope Global Ministry Director, Dr Peggy Banks, and many other TWR and Women of Hope leaders and workers sent congratulatory messages on video, not being able to attend physically due to travel restrictions. “The horn of praise is blown all over the world, indeed he will continue to use all of you for His Glory,” said Philile Bhengu, East and Southern Africa TWR Women of Hope Regional Coordinator. She adds that women in Africa deal with issues of oppression, exploitation, abuse, rejection, humiliation, poverty, unemployment, illiteracy, domestic violence, and polygamy on a daily basis. Also, forced, or early marriages are prevalent in some African countries. But Philile accentuates that, “through TWR Women of Hope radio programmes, we provide messages of hope to these women. We do this by creating awareness about these issues, whilst sharing our time, talents, and gifts with them. The aim is to see women set free from all sorts of bondages.”

ABOUT TWR WOMEN OF HOPE

TWR Women of Hope addresses women's despair and feelings of hopelessness by encouraging, equipping, and engaging through radio programmes and prayer groups. It has reached out to many around the world and across generations.

WOMEN IN TANZANIA

Women and youth are among the most marginalized and underutilized Tanzanian citizens.

Tanzanian females and youth should have greater access to and control over resources, opportunities, and decision-making power to sustainably reduce extreme poverty, build healthy communities, and promote inclusive growth. In March 2021, Samia Suluhu Hassan became the first female president of Tanzania. She herself said she faced challenges when she took office, due to decisions made by previous heads of state, like banning pregnant girls and young mothers from attending school.

Research and experience show that women’s inclusion in policymaking and peace processes on local and national levels is vital to strengthening and stabilising nations that face violent upheavals or extremism. Hassan’s elevation to the presidency comes at a time when women in Tanzania and East Africa are expanding on their long development of grassroots, civil society leadership.

Please pray for TWR Women of Hope in Tanzania, as they continue to advocate for the plights of women, and help them understand how valuable and precious they are in Jesus Christ.
