About Mighty Mothers of Africa
I have identified key women who I support by providing resources for delivering bi-monthly shipments of foods and one off shipments of furniture and clothes (as needed) with aims for this support to relieve pressure and provide some mobility for the parents and stability for the children in these households.
There is not currently any direct financial payment to these women, all money received goes directly on good quality, affordable resources to enable these women to go into training, further education and/or starting a self sustainable business which will be funded.
Funds go towards the following (not limited to these): -
Stock foods: yam, beans, garri, rice, cereal, powdered milk
Furniture: Beds, bedding, TV
Business start-up package (tailored)
Resources: Clothes, shoes, Books (educational, creative), pens
Travel costs (of the volunteer who is also a single mother and assists in buying local foods for the supported women).
Men and Women become single parents for many reasons, seldom by choice.
This support means a lot to me and the women and children being supported. As a single mother myself, being born and raised in the UK I am privileged to have been afforded a good education in a society where equal opportunities are upheld and getting access to jobs and support is common.
I have been able to work full-time and have continued to work since having my now 2 year old daughter and even with access to a good job, at times I do admit it is very difficult to support a child alone, the fees and demands are never ending and it is a thankless (but rewarding) job.
In Nigeria there is no guarantee of ANY job regardless of your education level or skills. Discrimination against women is very high and single mothers without support systems or connections can easily be marginalised and drift into situations that affect how they can provide for their children - quite simply it can easily lead to poverty and it is always the children who suffer the most.
No donation is to small, - if you would like to donate other items or services such as courier services, clothing or other this is welcomed.
