Mdm Begam, a single parent at Dayspring SPIN, once said that she had “no hope, no dream”. She was a masterful seamstress whose passion for garment design and sewing dwindled after building a family at 20 years old.
Raising five kids on her own is no easy feat. It was hard for Mdm Begam to find a suitable job as she had to stay home to look after her family, especially one of her sons who has autism.
E&S Blessing, a long-time partner of SPIN, supported her needs and mentored her in her home-based sewing business. They eventually launched the Celebrating Dreams project in 2019 selling kids’ aprons sewn by Mdm Begam!
Bringing her children out on excursions used to be a monumental task for Mdm Begam, but with the help of her befriender Shermaine, her kids can now go for more outings and enjoy themselves. To create a more conducive environment for studying and working, volunteers and donors from SPIN also helped Mdm Begam refurbish her flat. 💛
We are proud of her for doing her best with motherhood! SPIN will continue supporting single parents in their journey too.
