Nikolaus has cerebral palsy. He struggles to walk, is in constant pain and is incontinent. He lives in abject poverty with his mother, Gloria and younger brother. Like most mothers of children with disabilities, Gloria has been abandoned by her husband, has few friends, no support mechanisms and little prospect of earning a living.

The Shinyanga Care Ministry team has brought Nikolaus and his mother together with nine other mothers and their children with disabilities, to form the Comfort Womens Group to develop kinship, reduce the stigma of disability and generate an income to support themselves.

Friends of Amani Tanzania (FOAT) together with the Shinyanga Care Ministry Team are seeking to raise £1,200 to train the Comfort Womens group to initiate an economic empowerment project, supervise them closely in the process to achieving sustainable economic development and raise awareness on how to build commitment on self-reliance.
