Hope was born.
Fay thrived in her role -- she was a gifted worker and quickly worked her way up in the group. She eventually began managing the Quality Control room. From there, she advanced to selling jewelry at events and bazaars in a larger, bustling city.
While Fay was growing in her career, she was also growing her knowledge:
- She finished vocational training programs where she learned English and computer classes.
- She received professional certifications in Microsoft Word and Excel.
- She began taking some accounting courses, at no cost to her, as a reward for her determination.
Initially, Fay lacked confidence. Those around her gave her support and encouragement. Others believed in her abilities and invested in her. She passed her certification and is now an accounting assistant for the artisan group. She also works with a senior accountant who continues to mentor her.
- Someone was willing to step out and put themself in an uncomfortable situation. To help a stranger! Fay's life changed.
- Someone cared enough to invest in another in their community. Fay's life changed.
- Someone believed in another's determination and efforts, poured out support and encouragement. Fay's life changed.
Fay is no longer a"dropout-forced-into-prostitution." Someone cared enough to help.
Fay is now a candidate for her Bachelor's Degree, working towards her dream to be an accountant.
These vocational programs are made possible by partnerships between artisans and Trades of Hope. When we step out, offer hope, and invest in the possibility of others, REAL LIVES are changed!
