I am a Black Female Social Worker who has a child for white European. As a result of Misogyny, systematic and institutionalized racism, I have been charged four (4) times and the victim was the father.
I have been taken to several courts by him to get Custody from 2014 to the present. All my little savings went into paying legal fees and traveling between the two (2) islands to attend court matters. I could not get any Legal Assistance despite being financially embarrassed. I struggled as a professional. My intent for the NGO, Single Parent Action Network is to assist single parents both mothers and fathers who have been prejudiced by the legal system in Trinidad and Tobago as a result of a lack of Legal Representation. Also, to employ a driver to take single parents' children to and from school at a minimal cost. The request being sought here is to assist parents who cannot afford to pay for their children's graduation, afford a desktop for online learning, to assist single parents to send their children to college (registration fees), give out hampers, food vouchers, to assist in buying textbooks. This support will help me help those who cannot afford to help themselves.
This support will encourage me to go further in helping more families.
It will intrinsically give me that drive not to give up on others.
It will facilitate better children for the future.
This fundraiser is for the organization to launch officially as Single Parent Action Network in the best way possible with no delays.
It is has been registered since 2016. Unfortunately, a bank account has not been established so this will be used until such is done.
