We are adding an important component to our program, it is very important to us that the children return home to parents that are well prepared and able to support the needs of the child. We have the opportunity to provide ROH moms in Burkina Faso with a vocational training of weaving textiles while their children are in the United States receiving care. The program would instruct women on how to obtain product, dye the string and weave the product into sellable items, such as clothing and wrappers. At the conclusion of the training, mothers will have the knowledge, ability and equipment to obtain a rewarding income and the ability to provide for their children, including the child that will soon be returning to them. In addition to the ROH moms the program will be offered to widowed mothers in need of a vocation in order to provide for her family.
