Caring the Carers

Women can be taken for granted due to traditional notions, being seen as the family’s caregiver. Buried under a mountain of housework, she can find her health suffering under the strain and lacking a life outside the home. Our Community Networking programme is taking action to combat these perceptions. The programme offers networking activities to help women expand their social and support network beyond the home and help relieve the pressure they face.
