A Roof Over Head For Single Mothers
GOAL 5: GENDER EQUALITY
With the economic situation of the country slowing down as a result of the pandemic COVID-19, it was observed that there was a huge increase in unemployed single mothers. Homevest decided to reach out to single mothers to provide them with much-needed shel- ter and assistance during the MCO period. This was done through the following initiatives:
- Providing them with shelter by helping them to pay the rent as long as they are un- employed.
- Connecting them with job opportunities, either by offering them a job in Homevest Capital or linking them to partner companies.
- Assisting the single women with payment of their utility bills during their unemployment period.
- Organising online workshops (e.g. how to sell items online) for them to learn a new skill so that they can earn a living during this tough time.
