Lilian and her baby at Karibuni eco cottages
The GlobalGiving donations are benefiting girls in the Vocational Training Program in an enormous way!
Lilian who was six months pregnant in November has now given birth to a bouncing baby boy. Having two sons at just 16 years puts Lilian in an extremely vulnerable condition. However, through your generous donations, Lilian is receiving psycho-social and economic support. Thanks to your donations, Lilian’s hospital bills were catered for and she is getting the necessary support for her and her baby. She has also resumed her sewing lessons.
The donations have also increased economic opportunities for one of the girls; Millicent who has two children was given some capital to start a banana selling business. She is now able to take care of her two children. She also attends the Vocational Training Program to learn skills in sewing. It also through the donation that one of the girls Mercy 17 years who is a widow and also has a 3 years old son is being supported. One may only wonder what she would have done without your support!
Through the additional machines, two more girls have recruited in the program. The Vocational Training Program is now supporting a total of 14 girls; mostly teenage mothers. The number could only grow larger if you continue donating.
The donations are surely changing the lives of vulnerable girls. These girls will grow to be empowered in each way and this could only mean greater levels of poverty reduction in the community. It all starts with a Girl!
May God Bless you as you bless vulnerable girls in Ndhiwa through your generous donations.
