We remain steadfastly involved in widows' concerns, but we are also aware of the pressing requirements of their kids. We consider widows' offspring to be just as significant as the widows themselves.
After their fathers pass away, many widows' children cease attending school or learning anything at all. These kids make up a sizable portion of school leavers. Our organisation, the Jamil and Nyanga Jaward Foundation, also considers supporting their children to help break the poverty cycle.
JNJF was able to collaborate with Jansie Foundation in the Tengbeh Town Community to place 12 of them into thier vocational training programs in catering, tailoring, driving and computing. Hannah Gborie, one of the widow's daughter enrolled in the institution receiving training as a seamstress, was the subject of our conversation during a tour to one of the vocational centers, . She has been sewing for a month and can now make a woman's outfit.
Since the passing of her father five years ago, she considers this to be the best thing that has ever occurred to her. She said, "I will put all my body, spirit, and soul into the career to see that I become a professional seamstress. Learning this skill will make me relevant in society and be of help to my mother."
She praised JNJF for their generosity and commitment to assisting the less fortunate, especially widows and their children.
