“I want to open a tailoring shop for my business,” said Brenda. “With this I will raise my family, and I am going to train others and share my skills with them. May God bless the donors and African Enterprise for enabling me to know how to pray and share a word of God!”

“It has never been easy for me since I dropped out of school due to lack of funds. My life has been under the control of friends who manage to feed me. The good part of me tells me it is better to learn vocational skills in order to become self-sufficient. There was no means for me to learn any trade. By the grace of God, I heard about the good work AE is doing so I made a move to the office. Lo and behold I was given the opportunity to learn aluminum fabrication. Though I have just started I am hopeful it will end well for me. May the good Lord bless African Enterprise for the good work they are doing.”
Alex Collins Seddoh, Ghana Street Children Apprenticeship Project (SCAP).
“Once I complete my training in 2 months’ time, I am hoping to start a small dressmaking and embroidery business near where I live. Once my business is stable, I will also create opportunities for other women interested in learning a skill to come and learn from me. I believe that through these skills, my life will be transformed economically and my family will live a better life. I wish to thank the Mathare Women Staff and AE for their love, support and commitment to empower me. May God richly bless you.”
Esther Wangari, Mathare Women Empowerment Project.
