May 2022 - Wishing Moms and Grandmoms a Happy Mother's Day
Dear Power of Love Friend: Greetings! As Mother's day draws near, we are thinking of mothers/grandmas/ aunts in Africa who are finding it difficult to buy food and medicines due to higher prices and loss of livelihood due to COVID. Most women in vulnerable communities, are taking care of multiple children/grandchildren, have no access to credit, and few opportunities to earn an income. Our women's empowerment program supports women by the provision of small loans and training in basic business skills. Last year, more than 800 women were provided with business training/skills. The newly minted entrepreneurs are proud owners of businesses such as groceries, hair salons, tailoring services, used shoes, chicken rearing, blankets, Chitenge, fabric, etc.
Our goal is for the women to grow their businesses, build an asset base, and keep children in school. Please donate generously so we can continue to improve the quality of life of vulnerable families. Every dollar counts. And, as always, 100% of your donations go towards programs and no part is used for overheads.
Your friends at the Power of Love Foundation
