Ayomide's family today:
With the SOS team’s assistance, Ayomide got access to a community-based savings and loans group, training in basic book-keeping and entrepreneurship, as well as support with supplies for her income-generating project. Additionally, the family received counselling, childcare, parenting and life skills training.
"These efforts helped me and my children to cope emotionally and strengthened our determination to succeed in life. I learnt about the importance of hygiene for myself and my family and the importance of their education," says Ayomide.
Today, Ayomide earns an income from her farm and works as a poultry keeper. Their housing situation has improved. Her children have the opportunity to pursue an education. Her oldest son has graduated from the University of Abuja and her only daughter started training to become a tailor.
