Vulnerable Single Mothers program

Most of the single mothers that are in this organisation attribute this status to the separation that they underwent as they fled their country due
to war. This separation leaves them without husbands and they therefore quickly assume the roles of head of family. This new role comes with
numerous challenges most of which stem from the fact that they can not easily access employment. Their basic needs range from food , clothes,
education for their childen as well as basic shelter as most of them live in dilapidated rented shacks that pose both a health and security hazzard.
The number of such households is overwhelmimg and can not be met by the organisation solely. These mothers also have to be trained so as to
equip them with some hands on skills that in turn have helped them fend for their families. There is a vision to train and equip all these vulnerable
women with tailoring, art and craft skills so that they are self reliant in the long run.
