We have received feedbacks from mums whose lives have been transformed by our programmes, marriage and relationships have been strengthened, businesses have sprung up, some have achieved the confidence to get new jobs, our mums have learned to take better care of themselves and many are on their way to achieving healthier body weight, and healthy lifestyle for themselves and their families, our mums are better equipped to manage the often overwhelming task of juggling business career and the home, and are now giving from a place of abundance and joy and not sacrificing their lives in the process. These testimonials inspire us to keep going!
The desired change doesn’t happen in one session, that is why we offer series of workshops to reinforce and review what we taught them in the past session. It is critical for mums to learn how to apply the techniques for themselves and to make them their daily lifestyle. By offering a continuous programme and making it hands-on as much as we possibly can we have a greater chance of restoring confidence, dignity, and hope for a better future.
Our Core Values are rooted in commitment, community, compassion, and integrity.
- To connect and partner with organizations, churches, schools, women groups and nonprofit associations in order to reach more women
- To educate and sensitive the public on the need to give more support to mums
- To increase collaboration with communities for our outreach programmes
- To create awareness using traditional and social media and any other means available to us.
Since 2016 we have had over a hundred mums in our programmes and that is just a drop in the ocean. We want to do more. Your financial and material support no matter how small will go a long way to empower yet another mum and make our communities and the world a better place. Contact us to make a donation. Thank you!
