Summary

Children with disabilities need constant care, so their mothers often lack time to think about themselves. A small disability pension is not enough to pay for medical treatments or basic needs. So, mothers of children with disabilities, many of whom are single moms, need to work. Starting a new venture, purchasing professional equipment, or starting a course to learn new skills cost money. We aim to help mothers launch their careers and begin a new life while looking after their children!

Challenge

Ukrainian children with disabilities don't receive proper support from the state, but the effect on their parents is often overlooked. Rearing a child with a disability is a challenge, even more so for single parents who are most often women. In two-parent families, women are more likely to give up work to care for their ill children. Moms who are forced to abandon their careers to look after their children full-time have very few work and educational opportunities if any.

Solution

We create opportunities for stay-at-home moms of children with disabilities. We offer support to acquire a profession that allows flexible hours, such as a hairdresser or manicure artist. For entrepreneurs, we help women to launch and run their businesses by purchasing professional equipment, tools, or raw materials. We also help moms complete enrichment courses to learn new skills, such as special massage therapy to help their child. We help moms juggle their careers and parenthood.

Long-Term Impact

Every mom deserves to feel happy and accomplished. By providing educational and work opportunities to mothers of children with disabilities, we help them realize their goals and professional accomplishments. Providing 24/7 care for their children often leads to isolation. By learning new skills and building their careers, moms have a better chance to be happier, more productive, confident, and independent. Women's empowerment is the key to a fairer society where women's rights are acknowledged.
