June 2022: Hellen is a 33-year-old mother of five children. She and her children
were abandoned by her husband and she was forced to rely upon begging and
handouts. The demeaning practice of begging in the streets gnawed away at her
pride, and Hellen began to look for other alternatives to provide for her family.
Hellen asked other women who were selling in the Girl Power Africa market how
she could become part of them. A reference from the Girl Power group leader in
Duazon led to a donation of a Business Empowerment Package that provides
commodities for Hellen to jump start her business of selling consumable items in
the Girl Power Africa market. A donation from Girl Power Africa’s General Funds
has given Hellen and her children a hand up.
