Our Mama & Me program was deigned to help women and children in our village to live healthier lifestyles and to receive support for education, skills development and wellness. Our skills development program is centered on workshops conducted at our home base for sewing, craftwork, small business fundamentals and computer use. The moms are encouraged to bring their kids as they can do craftwork, check-out books from our office library, play games and watch movies. We are very proud of our Mama & Me program partners; Maasai Chic (USA), We Sew Love (USA) and The Sewing Machine Project (USA).
After 2 years of development, our sewing workshops expanded to include an entrepreneurship component, where we gave certificates to 10 ladies who completed our "Sewing and Entrepreneurship" series. We supported them by providing start-up materials and rent for them to open their own Tailor & Retail shop in our village. A bit delayed because of the COVID-19 pandemic. But they will resume operations soon.
