Life can be challenging for single mothers anywhere in the world, more so for those who are living in poverty. In Malaysia, single mothers are in their predicament mostly as a result of spousal death, spousal abandonment or divorce. Many face financial challenges and the majority of single mothers that hail from rural areas usually lack specialized job skills, as well as the education required to get proper employment. Many divorced husbands did not pay for the children support after divorce proceedings were finalized. Given that situation, policies and programmes that can assist single mothers in child care and children’s education are essential to ensure that they do not fall into the poverty trap.
MyNadi has officially opened a Tailoring class and a women center in Kapar for women surrounding. This is a long term objective was to ensure the center support and policy attention to empower and lift single mothers out of poverty.
