Nancy and her little girl need your vote

“My name is Nancy and I am 18 years old. I was attending Joska high school but, during the lockdown, the schools remained closed due to the coronavirus. During that time I got married and got pregnant with a baby girl, who is now ten months old.

I didn't get along with my daughter's father and so I went back to my parents with the baby. Since then I have not been able to go back to school or look for a job because, as a single mom, I must take care of the baby all day.

I feel inadequate because it is my parents who provide for all my daughter’s basic needs. I am also very worried about the many underage girls who become pregnant: in my opinion this adds a burden to many already poor families, like mine.

The only source of hope for me is this program. Thankfully, it allows me to take home some food and money. But my greatest wish would be to start a business, so that I can give my daughter the best possible education".

 

This is the story of Nancy Wanjiku, one of the girls benefiting from  the socio-educational project dedicated to young mothers in Mathare. The program wants to help them in training and developing their skills in order to learn a job.

Nancy, like Everlyne whose story we told you last week, and many other girls are among the young women who, thanks to the Foundation's project, are receiving invaluable help for their future.

You too can help them become more and more autonomous, 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.
