Fundraising Goal: $26,160
The Base for Hope and Human Rights Organization (BHHRO) strives to create a society in South Sudan without gender-based violence; to inform the communities of Juba, Western Equatoria, Upper Nile, and Western Bahr el Ghazal about the many harmful effects of female subjugation, including youth pregnancies, and forced marriages.
BHHRO utilizes Cash Transfer Programs (CTPs), which are regarded as one of the most successful approaches to reducing poverty in developing countries, to stimulate small business growth for young mothers in South Sudanese communities. Following a learning course on entrepreneurship, and the injection of 150 US dollars in seed money, recipients are expected to build their own, income-generating businesses, which in turn, reduces their reliance, and therefore vulnerability, to harmful relationships of necessity.
Donated funds will help BHHRO’s Cash Transfer Program, “Cash for Capital: Re-routing Teenage Mothers Through Small Businesses,” extend services to include additional young mothers on its roster, providing them with essential supplies, stimulus money, and learning workshops. Donate today; help give the gift of security to young mothers in South Sudan.
