Mission: For 130 single mothers with children


There are so many single mothers with children without any security of income. They come to our project every morning or afternoon where they are educated about hygiene, good health, raising children, personal, assertiveness, …

Next to this they choose one of our 6 workshops: tailoring, jewellery making, original embroidering, weaving, leather tooling, and hairdressing. In 2 years our mothers attend 3 workshops, which offer them a maximum of possibilities in the future. The proceeds of the products go to the mothers. Most of them find a job in a small firm afterwards.
