A project for 120 single mothers and “ladies” with children.
Many single mothers with children live without any form of income. This group of mothers also includes “ladies” who have sold their bodies for next to nothing for years. We want to give all these women a new future.
They will receive 20 euros per month from us for a maximum of 1 year. In return, they receive training in our project on hygiene, health, education of children, money management, assertiveness, etc. In addition, they can go for training in one of our 4 workshops: cutting and seaming, embroidery, weaving or leather processing. Each and every one of them has skills that prepare them for a regular and better job. In one year they go through two workshops, which increases their chances. In the last month they also do an internship in a network of companies and most of them are actually offered a job here.
In a pilot project with 40 candidates, the mothers receive in-depth training in just five weeks, with the option to start working independently afterwards. After a business plan has been approved, they receive start-up money and are monitored and adjusted for a while.
