Meet Bernadette, (Mama Zawadi) who has now started a hair salon. She had some challenging circumstances in her life, and because of that, went to live in a rehabilitation home called Pippi House. They put her through school to learn how to do hair and nails. Her daughter, Zawadi, lived at Neema Village for several years. In May of 2019, Neema Village stepped in to help her with housing and food and starting her hair business. She has also been attending some of the classes for the MAP moms. Zawadi is now living with her mother.
