Giving up is not an option

By Alexandra Smith | Fundraising Coordinator

After having successfully completed the first five weeks of the Fundamental Cycle of the CAPTA Program, 28 strong women manage to move on to the Vocational Cycle where, in teacher Victorino`s words: “GIVING UP IS NOT AN OPTION. This is the motto that keep you motivated to move forward to stand firm in the face of adversity and keep in mind your purposes.”

The Beginning of CAPTA 53 represented for some a dream to fulfill, for others a new hope, for some a new challenge and sacrifice but all agreed that CAPTA is a new opportunity to learn, improve, find themselves, continue growing and reaching that economic and emotional autonomy they need to get ahead.

 

No effort was spared, all had given their best and through the classes of Emotional Intelligence, conflict management, self-confidence, leadership, personal image, acting among others. They have been working on their purposes and we have seen these women strive firmly to learn and fulfill their tasks responsibly, improve their communication and draw strength from fears.

 

Undoubtedly, the first weeks become a school of life, allowing day-to-day strengthening and developing the social skills necessary in all living together, becoming more aware of the importance of physical and mental health, setting goals and expanding their preparatory technical skills to Job search.

 

Today, in this new stage, they get ready to know and develop skills in the technical vocational area, training as kitchen assistants and waitresses. Happy to have fulfilled their first goal and to start this second with renewed forces and their eyes set on that purpose, which they mentioned and have embraced since their first day at CAPTA.

Rilan, a 37-year-old woman with 5 children and who lives in Curundú, shares that CAPTA has changed her life, has learned that the attitude can open doors but also close doors and that she has made the decision to be a better person, mother and woman . 

“My biggest change has been my attitude and rebellion, it was not positive. But now even if it's not perfect, I'm looking to be a better person every day because, selfishness is a darkness that keeps you in the shadows ” Rilan.

We wish Success for all in this new stage!
