Empowering single parents

Hello everyone, I am Daniel from Kenya and would like to know if they is a way which we can empower single parents so that they can able to cater basic needs to their kids, mostly when their kids finish grade 8 and ready to join secondary school. That’s when mostly of this single parents lose hope and others join sex work so that they can get money to take their kids to school.

What is the real issue?, Is there no money to send them to community college? Is unemployment among single mothers high?

Maybe you can look at economic empowerment of young mothers and cottage industries, etc
