Circles of Grace was begun by the Grace Community Center-Kisii, Kenya, to offer young (often adolescent) unwed mothers weekly emotional support while teaching God's grace and how to care for their children. These young women are often shunned by their communities, even when their pregnancies were not their fault. Each group consists of about 5 girls meeting with a mentor.
One young mother shared that Circles of Grace had truly saved her and her child's life. Before attending, she was about to do something very drastic. The shame placed on her by the community and rejection by other local girls had caused her to consider taking her and her child's life.. She was so very thankful for the mentor and the sense of hope and belonging that she felt from this new group. She now understands God’s love for her and that her and her child’s lives are of great value to those around her.
Provide hope for young mothers through Circles of Grace.
