Joyce is a middle-aged mother of two. In March 2022 she had a miscarriage at 5 months. The miscarriage happened at home in the night.
Joyce heard about the Mwangaza training from church announcements. On enrollment, the safe space offered during the group sessions made her comfortable to open up. She was able to benefit from the counselling sessions which are a consequence of the Mentorship program. A fellow participant of the same training, Cecilia has been holding Joyce’s hand and helping her slowly regain her life. She gives her work and pays her for it.
Joyce says, "The counselling has greatly changed my outlook in life".
As soon as she has saved enough she hopes to start selling second-hand shoes or clothes.
