“Greetings, I’m Yvonne Natusti, a 28-year-old widow who lost her husband in the Congo war. Life in the Chaka Refugee Camp has been challenging for the last few years, especially as a mother of eight at my age. All I wish is for you to educate my children I have acquire and also build me a house, I have also acquired skills in making traditional African attire and dream of starting a small clothing business. Your support in acquiring materials and a sewing machine would not only change my life but also contribute positively to the community. Thank you for considering my story.”
For those who are in need of the training, you can support them monthly or quarterly for the period of 6 month.
The cost to run entire both programs is $2500. This covers 4 teachers' salary, a security guard, materials needed for 6 months for both programs, and an experienced skilled business person who offers guidance and mentorship to the mothers while in the program on how to run their own business. This mentor supports them another 6 month after their graduation to make sure they are making good decisions in their business or new job. This program has changed the lives of many widows and young girls making them independent and able to provide for their children.
