Train and Skill 240 Mothers in Kenya for Business

by DAUGHTERS OF KENYA

Summary

For a period of 6 months, under our Livelihood and Economic Empowerment for sustainability programme, our trainers will equip vulnerable young mothers living in slums to make and market earings, bangles, bags, scarfs, neck rings and necklaces in order to sell in markets and make a living for themselves. This will be done by using beads and African attire remains. After the training each woman will go home with a business kit that will have the first products to sell and make some capital.

Challenge

Due to lack of basic needs in the slums, girls are exposed to danger like prostitution, drug addition, theft, child labour and child marriage amongst others. This has contributed to very many orphaned and vulnerable young mothers in the slums around Kenya. The project will Skill and Empower the specific affected Vulnerable young mothers and this will lead to a major transformation of themselves, their families and the slum community at large.

Solution

Immediately the vulnerable young mothers are trained, equipped with skills and trained marketing skills, they will be given business kits containing the exact products they were trained to make. They will start their business immediately by selling the products and making some money both for capital and some for consumption hence start providing for themselves and their families. This new responsibility will save the from all kinds of dangerous exposures.

Long-Term Impact

Having trained and skilled 240 vulnerable young women to start their own businesses, there will be reduction of crime in one slum. The project will also lead to poverty reduction. The project will have a long term impact because the trained vulnerable young mothers will also train the upcoming younger generation of women on ways to make income through business hence the whole transformation will cause development and improvement of the whole slum
