On this International Women’s Day, TWR Women of Hope, a global ministry of Trans World Radio, is bringing hope in Jesus to women around the world and across generations.

Women in many parts of the world are marginalized, experiencing high levels of poverty, lack of education, oppression and health crises. While social reforms promise empowerment of women and the end of negative family cycles, only a spiritual solution found in Jesus Christ has the power to provide sustainable change and lasting hope.

TWR Women of Hope’s mission is to educate, encourage and equip women to pray, listen, learn, grow and give through media, small group interaction and leadership development.

“We hear stories from our listeners about ways Women of Hope radio program is touching their lives,” says Dr. Peggy Banks, global ministry director for TWR Women of Hope. The program includes educational and spiritual messages that are broadcast and distributed to women in over 70 languages. This results in more than 400 hours of radio broadcasts each week.

Additionally, more than 60,000 prayer intercessors pray in 90+ languages for women and the global issues they face, such as child marriage, poverty and abuse. The ministry’s 30-second audio prayer calendar is available here

What’s more, TWR Women of Hope has produced Hidden Treasures, an audio series for women who have been sexually exploited, which is being pilot-tested among 32 ministries in Europe.
