"I believe that people can lift themselves out of poverty……if they are given a little push." Cristina Clopatofsky
As a volunteer with BERUDA this summer I launched a project to support single mothers, who are often stigmatized in the community and left alone to raise their children. I had the opportunity to meet 10 young women who have an aspiration to lift themselves and their families out of poverty, but lack the resources to do so. They are very hard working and have tried to earn an income by working in someone else’s farm, selling food, or by relying on their families. However, this is not enough to provide for their children’s basic needs such as food and school fees.
By supporting this project, you can empower them by enabling them to start their own business in tailoring, cosmetics, and hairdressing. This will give them a stable source of income which will empower them financially so they can provide for their families. With your contribution, you will be improving the situation of these 10 single mothers, their children, and even improving the situation of the community by creating more jobs for people who face similar circumstances.
This is an open invitation to make a direct impact on their lives and improve their situation for the better, let’s help them help themselves!
