Coptic Orphans helps widowed mothers gain a sense of pride and independence through our B’edaya project. We give mothers who have a business idea the opportunity to make their dream a reality. Once their idea is approved the mother is given a loan to help fund her project until it is successful. Once her project becomes successful she pays the money back and the loan is given to another mothers to fund her project. Through B’edaya we have helped mothers who were unable to find work run successful businesses and support their children.
