Summary

25 Nicaraguan girls w/disAbilities & their moms are walking in each others shoes: growing together in health, recreation, education, & awareness of abuse, & violence. Magic Shoes are affirmation groups of moms & girls building communities. This gives space for girls & moms to get to know each other. Often a girl w/disAbilities is the last one to get attention in the family, invisible even to her mom except for her disAbility. The cycle of violence can be broken by aware moms & girls together.

Challenge

25 Nicaraguan girls w/disAbilities & their moms are walking in each others shoes: growing together in health, recreation, education, & awareness of abuse, & violence. Magic Shoes are affirmation groups of moms & girls building communities. This gives space for girls & moms to get to know each other. Often a girl w/disAbilities is the last one to get attention in the family, invisible even to her mom except for her disAbility. The cycle of violence can be broken by aware moms & girls together.

Solution

Magic Shoes' Affirmation Groups help moms & their girls w/disAbility, to walk in each other's shoes, with other moms & girls. They are informed about health, education, recreation & awareness of violence & abuse. Once the girls' & moms' needs become visible they work with others to try to meet them. This gives them space together to build their mom-girl relationship. Taking the opportunities & risks to change together with the community of other moms & girls they can stop the cycle of violence.

Long-Term Impact

25 moms with 25 girls w/ disAbiities are given priority & opportunity to grow. Walking in each others shoes they become aware of their needs. Strengthening the mother-daughter relationship in a community can help them help each other. As the community grows more moms & girls are affirmed. Society can become aware of their presence & gifts to the community. They can work on the lack of resources. The strength of the mom can not be denied as they work for their girl's visibility & equality.
