Proscovia’s business was hit hard by the Covid-19 pandemic. After the lockdown was over, we supported Proscovia to get her business up and running again.
“She decided to diversify and start selling weaves and cosmetics, alongside her hairdressing to attract more customers. It was a good business move and we boosted her business, she’s doing well,” shares Ruth.
Young people with experience of living care often leave the orphanage without much support to start living independently and find it difficult to make connections to realise their dreams and aspirations.
Child’s i Foundation’s social workers are working with young people with lived experience of care to make sure they have the skills, connections and support they need to form strong foundations of independent lives outside of institutional care.
“Child’s i Foundation has helped me in many ways. They have helped me achieve my dreams,” says Proscovia.
