With your generous donations, this project has been able to reach out to 100 girls and women with trauma healing, mediation and mentoring. Eighteen (18) of these girls and women have also completed the livelihoods aspect of this project and have established their own tailoring businesses to cater for themselves and their families. Going forward, our team of psychologists met with our Project Adviser in the field earlier this week to conclude plans to support another 40 girls and women with psycho-social support skills beginning this August. The healing process takes time and we are looking at a period of around 1 year for this batch to complete the training. The psychologists have also advised that a few of the previous recipients should be brought back to join this group to get more time to heal. We will soon be announcing the numbers that we are supporting with livelihood skills (i.e. tailoring, cattle rearing) in this batch.
