In Eastern Freetown we have entered into a partnership with the Shell polio victims and amputees. The group has a large number of young, single mothers who are also disabled. Many young, female polio victims are single mothers who are abandoned and left to fend for themselves on the streets. Many rely on begging to provide for their families. Many others have invisible disabilities such as the deaf and dumb.
This model of skills training support has worked very well with a similar project we are running in kenema.
