Your vote can help Everlyne make her dream come true

“My name is Everlyne, I'm 26 and have a two year old daughter. I attended school in Siaya County where I lived with my two brothers and five sisters. I couldn't go on to secondary school, so I took a hairdressing course.
My life changed one evening when I went out with friends and they offered me a drink. I was raped and became pregnant. My daughter's father refused to take responsibility for her. Today I live with my mother Josephine and my little girl in the Mathare slum.
It is a huge challenge for me to provide for our basic needs. To do this, I try to work by cleaning and washing clothes, but these chores are only occasional.
I am very grateful for the food I receive thanks to the project and I hope that, through the program, I will be able to earn some money. I'd like to set aside something to make my dream of starting my own business as a hairdresser come true”.

This is the story of Everlyne Mwajuma, one of the girls supported by the  socio-educational project  dedicated to young mothers in Mathare.
Everlyne and her companions are receiving invaluable help for their future.
Help them become more and more autonomous through two simple gestures:

- vote in the contest organized for Giving Tuesday, which might help us win a prize that we can 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 crafts workshop;
  • € 100 for psychological support.

Only together can we win!
Thank you.
