A long time ago in traditional African societies, young ladies were educated on the ways of the world by their aunties. Aunties taught young girls proper hygiene, how to prepare meals for their families, and how to clean a home. The Mothers of Gold program operates in the spirit of these aunties, geared toward empowering women in Ngora by bringing wisdom and progressive ideals to young women in this fast-changing society.
In the villages within this district, many women deal with teen pregnancies which causes them to drop out of school and ultimately struggle to support themselves and their children. Many of these women independently run their households without the support of a partner. Mothers of Gold strives to empower young women through socio-economic support programs that improve their quality of life and in turn, they help to continue community development.
