One Tribe Mamas Gives Vulnerable Mamas A Real Choice.
Young, pregnant vulnerable Mamas join our 12-month programme. They receive practical skills training on business skills like sewing, beading, detergent making, accounts, hair and beauty.
They receive weekly therapy sessions with our trained counsellor and play therapist.
They are immersed in positive parenting training with the younger teen Mamas being mentored by our more experienced older Mamas. They learn daily about attachment and bonding, nutrition, child development and learning through play.
They sew beautiful products and they receive cash in hand for every product they make. (They take this home daily to support their family) They also receive savings in an account for every product they make. (They record this in their personal savings book) This may seem a small thing to someone reading this but it is an impossible dream realised for a lady who cannot even open a bank account in Kenya.
One Tribe Mama’s Project is mostly self-sustainable and completely Kenyan run and not for profit. All of the Mama’s derive a huge amount of dignity and self-respect and also a sense of ownership The little One Tribe Mama HQ has also become a sanctuary for the Mamas. A crisis centre where they can, and do seek refuge from the huge struggles in their lives. They are waiting at the shop before the manager arrives in the morning and they leave as late as they can at night.and pride from actually creating and maintaining this project themselves.
Each donation and product purchased will directly impact the life of a young Mama and her baby.
Asante Sana (thank you in Swahili) One Tribe Mama.
