In Hungary, the employment rate for women with children under 1, 2 and 6 years is only 10%, 20% and 45-55%, respectively. With 2-3 years’ maternity leave per child many mothers become socially isolated and find employment and career advancement to be challenging. Family-friendly, part-time jobs are uncommon.
HelloMum! is opening an ecologically sustainable and family-friendly community space and café in September 2014. Its purpose is to encourage Budapest-based mothers to socialize and form part of the community, while empowering them through their participation in courses focused on personal growth and competency building to support labor reintegration. The social enterprise will provide ongoing part-time employment for their target group.
