10 Dreams Achieved. Thank You!

By vic | Project Leader

"The young mothers economic empowerment programs has equiped me with business skills that I can use to provide for myself and my 2 children. I was forcefully married at 16 years old, this was after my parents died. I could not continue with my education and I had to relocate to Nairobi in search of a better life. In Nairobi, I was housed by a close relative who had promised to take me back to school. However, things did not turn out as expected because my relative kept me in the house, while sexually abusing me at the same time. I ran away and found myself in the streets of Nairobi, waking up to beg for help everyday. I slept and ate in the streets for 4 years.This is where I got pregnant!"

I was able to secure a job as a houselp thanks to  a well-wisher I met in the streets. I relocated from the streets to Kibera slum, the second largest urban slum in Africa. I slowly started building my life and hopping that one day I would go back to school. In 2021, I met a neigbour who introduced me to Garden of Hope Foundation. I could not let this opportunity go, becuase the money I was earning as a houselp was not enough to support me and my children. I joined the economic empowerement program with an aim of learning more about business. I am glad to have graduated from the program with 10 more young mothers like me."

June's story represents many young mothers who have had to go through many challenges to support themselves and their families. Thank you for supporting June and many others to get the much needed economic empowerment skills.
