Project Description

About the Site
The site will help single mothers in Nigeria share ideas on how to raise children, as single mothers, within the context of the socio-economic straits of the country and the cultural challenges of single motherhood. Users join this network and get connected to other single mothers in the country who are happy to share their experiences with those who are on the same journey. By joining this community, users share and receive support. The site grows by having users create contents and curate contents which others have created. Contents are specific to issues pertaining to single mothers in Nigeria. By targeting a specific set of users (single mothers) in a specific geographical region (Nigeria), this site will provide users a community-based platform to share and receive support on how to address common socio-economic and cultural challenges of single motherhood.
