Out of the vicious circle of poverty

You can also help people who are stuck in generational poverty, stand on their own feet, get a job and dignity

A better life from the very beginning

Research confirms that if children grow up in extreme poverty, it greatly impacts and delays a healthy development of his or her brain.  Stress, hunger, unhealthy lifestyle and inappropriate living conditions negatively impact social, emotional and cognitive growth of a new-born baby..  Our brain develops most significantly in the early age up to three years. Our readiness for school, our ability to thrive in our studies and in our productive adult life, they all stand on the potential  the building blocks of which were established in early childhood. Therefore, in the Omama program, we use a method which helps children born into generational poverty to develop their potential starting from pregnancy up to three years.  Through educational activities, games and counseling carried out directly in the families’ s homes and in parents clubs, we increase the number of appropriate stimuli for a healthy child development, we build parenting skills and improve the family environment.  

We offer employment to women

We are convinced that the best ambassadors of better parenting in poverty-afflicted conditions are women who come from the same environment.  They have a personal experience with the world of poverty and they can advise other mothers or fathers in a language which they can understand.  In specific communities, we therefore select the most appropriate candidates to whom we will offer the necessary training, the opportunity to acquire work habits and a possibility of a long-term employment.  Our project will become an incubator in which they can work, develop their sense of responsibility and their skills under the guidance and mentorship of an experienced mentor. After one or several years of employment in our program, we would like to help them move on and find a regular job outside of our organization , for example, as caretakers.  Consequently, we will employ other women from the community with the best references.
