The end of the academic year was a great period for our project since the children were rewarded of their efforts of the whole year by getting really good results at school: the rate of success of the children, which were attending primary and secondary schools, reached 98%! Seeing them get the benefits of their hard work made us really happy of what we do to give them a better future!
During the summer months, we managed to send a few of them on a summer camp, but we would like to do so much more…
In September, we have been able to admit some more children and their mothers in our program, which supports now 120 children and 56 single mothers. The mothers are involved in different training sessions in hairdressing, dressmaking and our new baking session.
We are also currently working on the creation of a soap cooperative, which should be starting its activity in October. Based on the fabrication and sale of soaps manufactured with recycled vegetal oils, this initiative will also help the mothers in increasing their revenue and by consequence in taking care of their children by their own.
Thank you again for your support on this program, which gives the chance to 120 children and their mothers to stay together while building themselves a better future.
