THIRTY SINGLE MOTHERS in St George South are about to get a helping hand with their businesses and raising their children, by extension.
The assistance is coming through a new Mompreneurship programme, which was launched at the Ellerton Wesleyan Holiness Church this morning.
From tomorrow and continuing over the next three months, the women will be mentored and taught skills to help grow their already established businesses, or get their skills to work for them.
Funding will be available for the mothers to tap into at the end of the programme. (YB)
