Meet The Women
Our skill canter has a total of ten women with a total of 19 children. All of these women all have similar stories. None of these women have ever made it to high school, dropping out in middle school, some even beforehand, for various of reasons. They never had much opportunity to continue their studies after dropping out, so their reading and writing isn’t as advanced as it would be.
The things that these women have gone through, the things that they have had to overcome, is enough to bring tears to the eyes of the heartless. The resilience and strength that these women have shown to get to where they are is incredible. They have not given up. They have kept pushing through all of the odds. Now we get to walk along side them and give them that extra help.
“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach him how to fish and you feed him, for a lifetime.” - Lao Tzu. This is what we are trying to do here at the skill center. Teaching them these skills that they can keep forever and teach their children who can then also teach their children and so forth. Start a new cycle so they don’t continue living like they have. Give them a means to be able to provide for themselves and their families.
