Parenting and Family Care Giving.
Our trained community members in Bukomero with skills in Liquid soap making have formed a group to mobilize themselves and use the acquired skills to financially empower themselves. They made a committee and had their first product out this month. We are empowering Parents and ensuring that they are well equipped to emotionally, financially and physically be able to support and nurture their children towards responsible community players.
