Help Veronica and her family by voting on our project

“My name is Veronica, I am 20 years old and I am the mother of two children: the eldest is two years old and the little one is 13 months old. I had just finished school and was working with my older sister in her little kiosk when I got pregnant and now I spend most of my time looking after my babies.

I try to make myself available for some manual work, such as washing clothes and other housework. But this is not enough to provide for my children and also for my mom and brothers, with whom I live. I have six sisters and a brother and I also have to contribute to their maintenance because my mother is also single and unemployed.

I am so worried about my children because if they don't get an education they will end up being like me. This is why my greatest desire is to find a stable job or start a business, to give them a better future.

At the same time, however, I feel blessed with the shopping help I am receiving from this program and I am very excited about the knowledge I am gaining from the craft workshop: beadwork gives me hope that I can start my own enterprise. In addition, the program gives me so much courage because I can share my difficult experiences with other girls: we can support each other and together we can help each other and not give up ”.

Veronica Mbatha is one of the girls of the socio-educational project  dedicated to the mothers of Mathare which is restoring hope to 15 very young girls. It's only a few weeks since Veronica entered the project, she took over from Jennifer who sadly fell into the trap of slavery. Behind the promise of a good job as a domestic worker, she left for Saudi Arabia where thousands of trafficked women are held hostage and exploited.

Unfortunately we didn't succeed with Jennifer, but stories such as Veronica’s, Nancy’s and Everlyne’s are full of hope and demonstrate just how precious your help is for each of them.

Help them now with two simple gestures:
- vote in the contest organized for Giving Tuesday thanks to which we can win a prize to be allocated to the project;
- donate now:

  • € 10 for weekly shopping (rice, flour, sugar, oil and tea);
  • € 30 for medical treatment for mothers and children;
  • € 50 for training and the local craft workshop;
  • € 100 for psychological support.

 

Only together can we win and give these girls a better future!
Thank you.
