Vocational Training Fall Semester 2016
This year we recruited a group of students to study and become nail-technicians. We have four students and these girls constantly bring us joy and inspire us! It’s so rare to have a group of students who don’t skip any classes, who don’t hand in their homework late, and after class their teachers still have strength and are happy. 😉
For us it’s particularly rare, because we work with young people who have been through trauma in life or who have little motivation to learn to work hard and change anything in their lives. We have students to compare our current class to – out of our last group of students studying to be nail-technicians, unfortunately, none of the five girls received their diploma.
Today it’s such a pleasure to go into the classroom; it’s full of students and their clients surrounded by an intense smell of nail polish and an atmosphere of hard work and concentration.
We are hoping that this winter we will get back to our normal class schedules and the number of students will be back up to 12 – 16 students. We would like to have 3 – 4 groups studying to be hairdressers, cooks, computer programmers, and nail technicians.
Thank you all so much for your continued support for the professional education of our underprivileged youth – together we can give these young people New Hope in their lives!
