Fiona’s Salon Initiative is a long-term effort that is part of the Girl Power Project. We teach single mothers how to dress and fashion hair and use beauty products, so that they may look for jobs or save some money to help themselves while also helping their children. The salon is open every day from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Sunday.
The mothers leave their children in daycares while they attend training and work at the salon. As a result, Fiona’s Salon allows them to take home their commission earned from their labor, allowing them to live comfortably as a result.
- The proceeds will allow young mothers to earn money and provide for their families.
- They gain access to breakthrough hair technology without having to pay anything.
- As they work at the salon, the mothers gain skills and confidence.
- Their optimism has been revived, as finding work in Kenya without a proper education is difficult.
- The mothers are marketable, which means they may find work elsewhere, hence reducing poverty.
- Sustainability- With the skills, the mothers can support themselves and continue to live a reasonable life.
