You have transformed my life: Rose

 

The Covid-19 pandemic has left many people jobless. In Kenya, over 1.5 million people have lost their jobs since the pandemic started. This means that more and more families cannot be able to get a daily meal or afford basic needs. Women and Children are the most affected. Rose was married at the age of 19 years. As a young girl with so much dreams, her life was cut short when her parents died. This forced her into early marriage. Unfortunately her "husband" left her with one child in Kibera slum.

Rose did not have an option except to start provding for herself and her young child. Because of her low level of education, she could only secure casual jobs which are not well paying. When the pandemic hit, she was one of the 1.5 million Kenyans who were rendered jobless. Her employer could not allow her to continue with her job. Rose was forced to sleep in the streets with her child for several months.

During this time, she knocked on several doors for jobs, but unfortunately nothing was forth-coming. Rose was later introduced to our young mother's economic empowerment program by one of the well wishers who had heard of her plight. She succefully went through the program and was given a start-up capital to start her business. Rose is currently running a profit making business in Kibra and she is able to provide for her family. Her son just started school. Apart from her business, Rose has dedicated herselft to mentoring young people on various issues that affect them in the community.
