For the past 15 years Globeserve has joined forces to establish two schools there. One of the schools is a preparatory school that educates 500+ kids. The other is a vocational school that has been focused on sewing and dressmaking for unwed mothers who are at risk of turning to prostitution for work. (After graduating the program, they get a sewing machine to take home to continue their practice.)
A recent expansion of this program is sandal making through Mawu Lolo! The women in this program are given a chance to learn a skill that has the potential to change the path of their lives and offer them and their villages stability. Mawu Lolo hopes that after the artisans graduate the program they can continue their trade in their villages and take steps toward ending the cycle of poverty by having a means to provide for themselves and their families.
