Project Justification: Why do you need the project?

Fourteen years ago, my husband was killed in a car accident. Since that time, I have lived as a widowed mother and in more vulnerable conditions taking care of my children. I am part of a local church and have been praying for this need.

General Objective: What do you hope to achieve with the project?

I hope that my living conditions, and those of my children, might be safer and healthier.
