It’s never too late to develop new skills, so we have various programs to help parents lift their families out of poverty.

In 2013, as requested by numerous mothers, we launched parents’ English classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We currently have 20 mothers regularly attend the classes.

The finance classes for the mothers are extremely important, helping them to budget and make smart financial decisions to help get out of debt.
