Additional Info about Us
Resilient Women's Organization, was registered in 2016 as CHEL Child Mothers Development Organization, a Community Based Organization with the major goal to reaching out to vulnerable young women and help them on the journey to self sustainability and social, economic empowerment.
With the unemployment rates at 80% of the country, mainly women, it's very hard to break through the poverty cycle.... Our organization is especially in place to reach out to struggling and displaced young women and go ahead to give them hope, stability and the tools they need to journey towards social economic empowerment.
Resilient Women's Organization envisions a society where women, teen mothers, their children and other vulnerable people in our communities are healthy and living up to their full potential.
To create lasting solutions for unemployment and poverty in the lives of teen mothers, their children, persons with disabilities and other vulnerable people in society through female education and empowerment programs.
We do not work with orphanages but our work revolves around young women, even those with children and how to help them face the world on their own.
We also have no work with children's homes.
Our major goal is to work with young women and help them on their journey towards independent economic and social empowerment so that they can achieve financial self sustainability.
We do not work with orphanages.
The children associated with our programs have families, with which we do family reconciliation and economic empowerment.
We encourage young women especially teen mothers to take full responsibility of their lives, their children and to learn to move forward and make better decisions in the future. They solely own the decisions they make. We simply provide a temporary shelter for the the young women in our care, as they work through the hurdles in their lives and in the process, they get to benefit from our women empowerment/ education package.
