Summary

This project will enable our Sewing Assistant to pursue further education at a reputable English school. Phalla is 18 years old. She stopped studying at public school when she was in Grade 7 as her younger sister died and her mother was ill, so she no longer had funds to support her studies. Last year she began studying in HHA's first sewing class. Impressed by her commitment, she was hired as our sewing assistant and went on to study our advanced and expert sewing class.

Challenge

Our sewing staff never finished school due to poverty in their families. Although they all studied sewing at NGO's and have part-time employment, their job opportunities are still limited due to their lack of English ability.

Solution

These staff members are already studying at Australian Centre for Education, and not only has their English improved dramatically, but their confidence has, too. They are able to communicate with colleagues and improve their outside employment. By allowing them to continue to study their English course and eventually graduate, their English will progress to an advanced level and set them up securely for their future.

Long-Term Impact

Our scholarships assist our staff to rise above the economic limitations that present obstacles to their further education. They will then use their education to guide, educate and inspire others to achieve. Ultimately, they become role models and help break the cycle of poverty.
