Women’s drop-in community project

While Twilight Children has mainly focused on the boy child, it was decided that the issue of young women living and working in the streets could not be ignored.

A small drop-in programme was started for girls and local community members-women who are involved in various income generating projects. While we do not provide accommodation for this target group, we have in some instances been successful in family reunification and admission to women’s shelters in the city.

This programme will require additional funding as the capacity increases. It is our vision to expand this initiative as it serves the main purposes of skills development and offers a life style alternative to young women. We intend to build up a large client base for the retail of our beads products, curios and corporate gifts.

Additionally, the sewing project has been initiated to provide skills training diversity. It includes the manufacture of clothing items such as skirts, tops, cushions and trendy shoulder denim bags.
