This year we have alot of plans especially in ensuring that we increase the number of teenage mothers that we provide skills to and therefore we require support in supplies ,equipment, and furniture .
We require blow dryers, dryers, tongs, cookers (3) 1 fridge , 5 laptops , and salon furniture ( equipment) to make our project a great success, this equipment and furniture is vital to the success of our training the teenage mothers .
A new year means new beginnings , new goals , and even better plans ,we look forward to improving our IMPACT in the Community.And look forward to working together amicably towards this goals!
Ever since we begin the train 100 girls project, supplies have been a great challenge.We have trained cohorts in Nairobi, Homabay, and Kajiado and mostly used the equipment in the salon we collaborated with.We still do require the supplies so that we are able to train more girls and create more impact by CFG having an equipped centre, Thank you for your support and commitment. The train 100 girls project plan is to provide skills training to teenage mothers in hairdressing , cookery, tailoring , therefore the requisite requirements of tailoring machines, oven, dryers (salon equipment)Having the equipment will greatly improve our service efficiency and delivery , save time and ensure that we provide skills to more needy teenage mothers in our community .
This year 2021 in Homabay we are working with Cohort: 3
The 100 girls initiated is a program that was designed and implemented by Community Focus Group since March 2018 and has contributed a lot in the lives of teen mothers in Homabay county and other counties. The program’s main objective is to develop skills of teen mothers who have dropped out of school by imparting them with skills on hairdressing, tailoring, beauty, catering, basketry and jewelry making. The process and the training have brought a lot of change in the lives of teen mothers who have lost hope in life. So far CFG has trained two cohorts in Homabay county from 2018 which included six participants from Homabay county.
CFG requires support in purchaisng , dryers,(3) Tongs , Haidressing supplies for the project and hope that this year we will be able to accomplish this goal
As the Train 100 girls project begins again its important that we Recommit ourselves. Teenage motherhood is a serious problem, and it’s getting worse during the covid -19 pandemic. We must call on families to be more vigilant to keep their children safe, and to raise awareness about the increase in domestic violence. We need the messages to echo across the airwaves. We need communities to hear us—now more than ever. and most of all we still require the supplies in order to be able to carry out the project .
The young mothers will receive support in their training in the various fields especially hairdressing , Baking/cooking , Tailoring * They will use the equipment to learn/ train and acquire skills in their various fields and also have a place where they can ask questions and share their worries, as well as somewhere to turn in an emergency. * They will have a place where they can talk to other young mothers. * They can prepare a meal for themselves..
The project requires the following basic equipment 3 Hairdryers - $700.00, IT Equipment - $2,000, 1 Big Cooker - $700.00, 1 Big Fridge - $600.00, 5 Tailoring Machines - $1,650.00 5 Blow Dryers - $200.00, 1 Big Washing Machine - $1,200.00, 10 Dummies - $300.00
Covid-19 has changed the way we live our lives and created more teenage mothers than there has ever been in the history of our country Kenya ,
Now more than ever we require the supplies which are equipment in order to ease our training especially in hairdressing , tailoring and cooking.
The recent reports about teenage motherhood in Kenya is alarming , over 50,000 teenage girls have become pregnant during the quarantine period /shut down in March 2020 which went on until August 2020, many households have been devasted by this news considering many parents have lost their jobs during the pandemic and there is alot of hopelessness both by the teen mothers and the parents
Community Focus Group train 100 girls project still requires supplies , this are blow dryers, hair dryers, cookers, fridges, tongs, hairpieces, weaves among others, this supplies help the facilitators and the girls learn fast because they are not working with theory but the actual products that are in use in a hair salon, a hotel or a taloring school.
