Palm Beach hosts hundreds of benefits every Season. We can’t hope to spotlight every one, but here’s a cause we find especially moving – Women in the Window International, a faith-based mission working to equip female leaders and end the cycle of oppression and abuse in the 10/40 Window and beyond.
Working with ministry partners in Africa, Asia, America and the Middle East, WiW employs five training strategies to influence the lives of oppressed women and girls:
- Heart (spiritual formation),
- Hands (economic empowerment)
- Head (leadership)
- Health (“wholistic” care)
- Advocacy (human rights activity)
The group’s Third Annual Spring Luncheon will be held on Valentine’s Day (Tuesday, Feb. 14) at The Beach Club (755 North County Road, Palm Beach). A silent auction begins at 11 a.m., followed by the luncheon at noon.
The event will feature Salima Kateb, a women’s ministry leader in North Africa, who will share the hopes held by women in the Arab world, where life is anything but secure. Executive Director Kim Kerr will provide an overview of Women in the Window International’s groundbreaking work.
“We’re incredibly grateful for the involvement of the Palm Beach community for most of this decade,” Kerr says. “As a result, we’ve seen countless women’s lives changed in some of the most desperate situations in the world.”
