Introducing myself and my journal

About Me:
Hi. My name is Esme but, I represent The Cradle of Hope, A HOME FOR DESTITUTE WOMEN AND CHILDREN in South Africa. we are dealing with Women who are broken and want/desire a hand-up and not only a hand-out. Economically we are struggling to make ends meet, with electricity that is so expensive, food, nappies, baby food, just "supposedly" normal everyday items.
We try to give everyone psycho-social support and the kids attend edu-care programs at the House or go to normal schools. We are trying to attract donors to help fund the house and possiblky create more oppurtunities to house more desperate women.

My Passions:
Women and their children

My Challenges:
keeping the house funded

My Vision for the Future:
Homes for destitute women and their children for respite

My Areas of Expertise:
