Make a Better Way is a program that provides 30 mothers, whom have been unemployed for 2 years or more, the opportunity to be employed and trained for the duration of 6 months, beginning in September 2015. During this time the mothers are employed with either Single Mothers in Progress or other supporting agencies. While employed, the mothers are required to attend various life skills and employment training seminars such as How to be a good employee, Building Self-esteem, Resume building, Parenting and CPR.
In Canada, only 68.9% of female lone parents with children less than age 16 living at home were employed. Your support can assist in employing and training a mother; thus, changing the life of her child/children.Donations for this program will go towards transportation, an assistance of $500 towards clothing, and subsidized childcare for each mother.
