We also aim to raise awareness of hygiene, children's rights and parenting skills. Single mothers in particular are given training and advice on income-generating activities. Vulnerable women from the community have received training in tailoring, or have learnt to make decorative candles and small items out of jute. When needed, the SOS Kindergarten can also provide day care for young children.
