Challenge

Single mothers have very few chances in life here. They need to take care of their children and sometimes taking care of their parents too. Finding gainful employment for them is difficult and they are considered second class citizens in their communities.

Solution

The project will provide much-needed entrepreneurial skills to poor single mothers and using the resources from their communities as starting point for them to start their own gainful employment and with pump-priming support from us.

Long-Term Impact

Improvement of the well-being of single teenage mothers will mean improving their social and economic situation as well as enhancing their dignity in their communities.
