We have learnt that we need to help the Mums as well as the children. The poverty faced by these families is eased by our support through education of the children but the Mums need work. On site we have a disused container filled with sewing equipment provided by Tools with a Mission

 
 
 

It all started when we moved from 3 days school per week to 5 days. This meant the Mums could go out to work but that wasn't a complete solution. Over the years we have tried various things but sowing seems to be the most popular. The mums now make the school uniforms for the children and also do bead work for fashion companies
