Dear Friends, We held the second workshop on February 26 and 27, 2010, with 29 mothers in attendance. This gives us total of 59 mothers and 94 children, out of the 100 mothers and 200 children targeted, having been empowered with life skills. Twenty-five mothers and 35 children have received mutual health coverage for a year, and five mothers have received start-up capital of $100 each. “I thank SDI for their sense of direction in helping teen mothers like us…otherwise my family would have remained paupers. Now I can boast of providing for my family.” --Egbe Constance Egbe, beneficiary at Long Street, Buea. Now we have 34 mothers trained without the associate micro credit and health care and 41 more to be trained to get micro credit and health care coverage, to meet our target of 100 mothers. There are more than 64 children of teen mothers yet to get health care coverage. What is the way forward? We have decreased the child mortality rate, created businesses, supported teen mothers, and gave them voices for active participation in the socioeconomic development of their communities. What do you think about our project? How can we work together to attract wider support?
