Convoy of Hope's 2021 GIFT Catalog Creates Unique Gifting
Opportunities for People Who Want to Empower Women and Children

Convoy of Hope's recently-released 2021 GIFT Catalog features an
entire section focused on women's empowerment-themed gifts, including
hygiene kits ($10), sewing machines ($150), restaurant equipment ($300),
small business training ($1000) and other items desperately needed by women
and girls living in developing countries.

Through Convoy's Women's Empowerment program, $300 can provide
startup capital needed for one woman in a developing nation to start a
business, helping lift her entire family out of poverty and supporting
commerce in her community. And $10 can purchase a feminine hygiene kit,
without which, many young women around the world are forced to stay home
from school.

Other gift sections include Children's Feeding, Agriculture and
Disaster Relief. The non-profit organization, which provides domestic and
international aid, hopes the unique catalog will inspire charitable givers
to help meet desperate needs of women and children this Christmas. With
