  • After Violette's husband left her, she was left with nothing and her children often went to bed hungry.

  • But since Violette started on our livelihood programme, she now runs a successful small business growing produce to sell. She's a Mumpreneur!

  • Please can you help more mums like Violette become mumpreneurs and lift themselves out of poverty?
