April has been an exciting month for Hagar Vietnam and Joma Bakery Café, Hagar’s enterprise partner.  Twelve Hagar clients are excelling at their positions, after completing Hagar’s job readiness and vocational training.  To celebrate the progress they’ve made, Joma Bakery Café increased their salaries and improved their benefits package.

Yen joined the employees and Hagar clients at Joma Bakery Café.  This month, she graduated from Hoa Sua’s vocational training with baking and hospitality skills.   She said:

                                  “I feel happy and confident with my new position.”

A Birthday To Remember

Blowing out the Birthday Candles
Blowing out the Birthday Candles

 

On March 15, 2011, we turned 17 years old!  We celebrated that night in Cambodia with a birthday party.  As you can see the girls and boys at Hagar enjoyed birthday cake and confidentially performed a traditional Cambodian dance.  The celebration also included a staff awards ceremony, where staff were recognized for their years of service at Hagar.
 
To top it all off, supporters like you gave us birthday gifts on Global Giving's match day, March 16th.  This raised over $11,000 to support the trafficked and abused individuals in our care.  
It's been 17 amazing years of walking the whole journey with women and children who have survived trafficking and abuse in Cambodia. Thank you for partnering with us in this vision to do whatever it takes!

Hiens Story of Transformation

Women
Women's Artwork in Vietnam

At 22 years old, Hien joined Hagar's first personal development training group in 2009.  In her first session, she tried to paint for the first time.  Frustrated, she threw the painting brush to show the facilitator that she could not do it.  She was very shy and had low confidence in herself.  She rarely spoke in front of the group.  After three sessions, she felt safer and started to share more.  The other women in the group always listened when she spoke because it was always with deep meaning. 

After she completed the personal development and job readiness training, she attended a room service training course for six months. Upon graduation from vocational training, Hagar established an internship for her at the Sofitel Plaza.  After her internship, Hagar helped her secure a full time position at a five star hotel.  She is one of the extraordinary examples for transformation.

In 2011, Hagar will transform the lives of 50 women like Hien.
