Dear Bremley, thank you for this wonderful idea,

This project would offer help to a invisible part of the society, single mothers and children who need support. Giving these women skills and opportunities will reduce stigma and poverty. Children suffer a lot when their reference in life (mother) live under these conditions; research says that the last option for a kid is grow in an institution, so these activities will let children stay with their families and environment. Looks easy, but I know the high amount of work that needs to be done, as prison means a high stigma for people. Probably these mothers will need a lot of support, psychological support and also vocational training sessions and then opportunities in the real work (out there). Definitely this project sounds like the opportunity they need. Keep the great work!

This is a WOW initiative, congratulations. 1020 mothers, 850 children and 500 prison staff correctly attended and trained are massive results. As a psychologist that works on the field, sometimes the staff is not enough on these institutions and we can not spend enough time training people for the future, and of course children are the ones that suffer most this situation. I would like to see the results after time, how these mothers took the second chance that a non-profit offered them and converted it in safe and healthy family environments. This project makes sense to our every day work. Sincerely, congratulations for this initiative! keep doing!

Congratulations for this incredible idea. I can see three very important basics on this project: agricultural technology, environmental protection and poverty reduction that will make a high impact in many people´s lives. I also rely on the team, because I had the opportunity to interchange many ideas with people working on it; I can almost ensure a bright future to this magnificient proposal, because of talent, the human capital involved on the project and the motivation to make things happen. Go for it!
