Apart from training abandoned teen mothers in tailoring, LHM-C has recently introduced a new training program, which now is aimed at providing training in dying for these young girls mostly victims of social ills.

Hardly implemented, the program has started generating responses and consequently producing expected results in terms of revenue for each learner, thus transforming teen mother’s daily lives.

Asked on the main objectives of the program, Ms Yapani Hermine staff member of the LHM-C in charge of the training responded saying”the main objective of this new program is to diversify the means of revenue for teen mothers, who are in most cases abandoned without help; without financial resources”. She also added saying that “Through dying, they can not only make enough money for themselves but also send their children to school.” Dying is a lucrative activity in our country nowadays”. She concluded.

Regarding difficulties related to the program, Yapani said “chemical products for dying are sometimes costly but affordable for all”. She also advised learners to avoid buying fake chemical products for dying, which cannot provide expected results.”Fake chemical products cannot only damage your materials but also tarnish your reputations». She futher drew the attention of the learners on the side effects of chemical products used for dying, thus advising them to scrupulously observe instructions regarding the products.” the chemical products can be dangerous to your health” .She concluded.

One of the beneficiaries, Ms Alice praised LHM-C‘s new initiatives saying «We thank our Lord God for this new initiatives”. I’ am very delighted to be part of the beneficiaries” she added.
