Welfare Single Mothers (Tuwama Group) is a group in Mwanza, Tanzania that reaches struggling young mothers who have become depressed as a result of being abandoned by their husbands. Each member in the community makes a contribution toward three sewing machines which are shared by the community of women. The young mothers are given free sewing training, which provides them with a dignified livelihood and allows them to support themselves and their children.
