This project was started in response to the horrific conflicts taking place in the Democratic Republic of Congo.  Women endured unspeakable horrors as a result, and many are now the main bread winner having lost their male relatives.

The project provides the necessary economic sustainability as well as the emotional support required to help these women to heal from these conflicts and rebuild their lives.

The success of the organisation has not only empowered over 100 women across several projects in Eastern and Central Africa, it has also improved their physical health.

 

Since many of the women live in very basic accommodation and sanitation, their health is often poor.  This project’s practice of hand cleanliness before the women can work on the linen has assisted in reducing the rate of sickness.
