A B-Day that Empowered Women

Meet Kati Clair. Kati is an exceptional woman and she wanted to do something equally exceptional for her birthday this year. She is partnering with Jesus’ Economy to raise money to empower women in Bihar, India. Instead of buying Kati a gift, she would love for you to donate to help women in Bihar learn sewing and business skills, and also to obtain microloans that help them work toward better futures.

Kati has been encouraged by Jesus’ Economy’s goal of holistic community transformation and is always looking for ways to support this ministry. “Jesus cares deeply for women when they are oppressed and ignored, and Jesus' Economy is extending the loving and dignifying touch of the Messiah through this outreach,” she says.

To her, it is important that we recognize the mission of Christ, which is to meet the needs of all people—both physically and spiritually. She wants to show people what life in Bihar is like and that everyone has the opportunity to support these women in hopes of renewal.

“I am thrilled to be able to multiply the joy that a birthday normally brings by extending gifts to the women in Bihar,” she says, “knowing that those gifts will be used in transformational ways. I couldn't ask for a better birthday gift than that—it is truly more blessed to give than to receive!”

The blessing is what matters to Kati. She cares for the women of Bihar, and she desires to see them receive help. “I would love for people to become more aware of Jesus' Economy and what is being accomplished in Bihar in the name of Christ,” she says. “I also would like for people to be blessed by the joy of giving—as Paul said, ‘I seek for the profit that increases to your account' (Philippians 4:17).”

We seek to glorify God with our lives, and Kati hopes much glory will be given Him through this campaign.

“I am grateful to everyone who has taken the time to click through the page, watch the video, pray, or give financially. As someone who enjoys working with her hands, it fills me with delight to think of giving that opportunity—to make goods, sell them, and support a family—to someone else. It's life changing. It matters. I'm so thankful for Jesus Christ, who loved and empowered women first, even me. May all this be in His name, to the glory of God!"
