Transforming Lives with Saint Mathews 

It truly has taken a whole “village” to make two programs become a reality in Lincoln Nebraska. First one Grandma Project, established 5 months ago, gives the older Yezidi women a chance to learn some essential skills to help them integrate into the American community. The second program, Dance Away gives underprivileged children in Yezidi community a chance to learn to perform and develop appreciation for different types of music .
We want to express our gratitude to the Saint Mathews staff and members for their time and also for the grant recently given to help us explore ways to further develop these programs.  We are indebted to you for giving us the helping hand we needed to establish programs that transform lives. Above all, we are all thankful for respecting the Yezidis values and beliefs.
