Our Empowerment Program focuses on helping families coming from impoverished and marginalized communities learning how to become self sufficient and confident in their own abilities. Through our Empowerment Centre, we teach them bead-making, tailoring, dressmaking, entrepreneurship and financial education. This enables them to be financially stable and positively contribute to their community.
We have implemented a unique approach to some of the issues by education the community members on Life Skills and Sexual and Reproductive Health Rights.
One of the issues we are targeting is sex worker. Many of the women work in sex trade (this is common for girls and women as that is how alot of them make a living) in and around Mlolongo and some of them are still in rehabilitation.
Recent studies have shown that commercial sex workers choose to remain sexually involved in the business despite acknowledging the potential and deadly role of the HIV pandemic due to: lack of education, extreme poverty, and the appeal of fast money;despite the danger involved in prostitution, many of the women choose to remain in sex trade.
Our organization saw an opportunity to pull women from prostitution and place them in an income generating program to offer them that there are other options for wimen to make a living.
We train women in the skills necessary to start their own business, and assist with start-up materials/ capitol. Currently our members are crafting school uniforms, taking orders for clothing, and making jewelry.
With your donations you will help to provide them with sewing machines, materials, beds, teachers' salaries, books, pads and tampons, food and so much more.
You can give a woman a better future by donating. These donations not only help women start on the path of earning an income free of dangers and instability, but it also assists their families and the maintenance of the project as a whole.
