Proud Single Parents campaign targets stereotypes and stigma

#ProudSingleParents social media campaign has being launched by Opfs to celebrate the diversity, skills and proud moments about being a single parent. Thus challenging the stigma that many single parents have reported to have experienced. We want people and policy makers to reconsider the stereotypes portrayed about single parents being teenagers and scroungers.
