In many parts of the world it is difficult for young women to find employment that will support them and their children. Attending traditional training or education programmes may not be an option for several reasons. In complex situations, women are denied access to jobs and have no way to support themselves or lift themselves out of poverty.
MMMs provide training and enterprise skills to empower young women to be self employed. Giving women skills they can use to make money allows them to create an income to support themselves and their children for life. Skills like hairdressing, crafts, design, dress making, computer training and other abilities are taught as they are in demand in the areas where the women live.
To meet the needs of the people we serve, MMMs undergo professional training and development to attain or update skills. Ongoing organisational training and support is provided to the MMMs to assist them in facing challenges and enable them to deliver essential care to those most in need. Continuing professional development is essential to the delivery of our core mission.
