This month, Impact Foundation started a fundraising campaign intended on securing vocational training in freelancing for single mothers in North Macedonia. Through the international platform GlobalGiving (globalgiving.org), we launched the project Empower Single Mothers in Macedonia in Freelancing (Single Mothers in Freelancing).
In North Macedonia, disadvantaged groups like single mothers have more difficulty accessing the labour market. Apart from the bigger cities, labour is in low demand, hampering decent employment for these groups. Furthermore single mothers have even more difficulty finding jobs because of social stigma, the inability to balance work and childcare or other factors that slow their professional progress.
The goal is to secure funds for covering vocational training in digital jobs for at least 10 single mothers in North Macedonia for freelance work. Covering both technical and soft skills needed to thrive on one of the freelancing platforms we’ve chosen single mothers because of their difficulties in managing both work and child care.
Freelancing can enable single mothers decent income opportunities. The flexible working hours will also ensure that mothers can choose the optimal work time and care for their children.
Help us raise funds for 10 single mothers to become successful freelancers.
We support them with highly attractive 6 months hands on course for a digital job, so that they can raise and educate their own children.
Working on flexible hours and earning income from digital jobs means a living for single parents.
