Millennium Fellowship Project: Life Enhancement

Life enhancement to the frustrating single mothers was designed to help those mothers who dropped out the school while they were young enough to keep on studying until they would even leave secondary schools and university because they got pregnant at school since most of them are coming from poor families and they were forced to have sex for money to meet their daily needs as women are more prone to being affected by harsh life conditions because they can’t even buy themselves sanitary pads. This project will help those women to acquire knowledge and skills needed to take care of themselves and their kids through making money on a daily basis to fight against poverty as this project will equip them with tailoring knowledge and then we will find them tailoring machines to help them and establishment of the cooperative for them to work together and earn together in addition, we will try to find them works to do from for example primary and secondary school uniforms(outfits).
