The Lebanon Home for Women
LPGM supports the Lebanon Home for abandoned or widowed women in Tiruvannamalai, Tamil Nadu. In the Indian culture women who have been married but now have no husband are not able to be married again. The Lebanon Home, operated by the Arcot Lutheran Church, provides a safe and productive environment for these women and their children. About 40 women live on this campus supporting themselves by weaving towels, napkins, place mats, shoulder bags, tablecloths and other goods that are sold in India, Denmark and, mostly through LPGM, in the United States. Goods from the Lebanon Home are available through the LPGM office. All of the money received through these sales goes directly back to the Lebanon Home.
If you would like to have some linens made by the women who live and work at the Lebanon Home in South India you can get them from LPGM at any time. We often have tablecloths, placemats, runners, napkins, wash/dish cloths, and kitchen towels like some of the items pictured here.
The best way for you to see what we have available is to visit us at our office. If that isn’t possible, we can discuss the items on the phone and we can mail you an order as well.
At various times during the year these linens are also offered at a fair trade or church bazaar. We will post those on the LPGM Out & About in the Community page found on the sidebar of our homepage.
100% of your contribution for the items go directly to the Lebanon Home to support the women who live and work there. We welcome designated contributions, in any amount, at any time, to the Lebanon home as well.
