Mother’s Day 2021: This Single Mum Used to Have “No Hope, No Dream”

HCSA Dayspring SPIN has supported this single mum with child-minding, skills upgrading and even refurbishing of her house, to give her hopes and dreams for the future.

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.

HCSA Dayspring SPIN - E&S Blessing Celebrating Dreams

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. đź’›

We are proud of her for doing her best with motherhood! SPIN will continue supporting single parents in their journey too.
