Our young Women are resilient, strong, and determined to succeed.

Resilient is the first word that comes to mind when describing the five young women who joined our program in January. Despite the unbelievable hardships they have endured during their young lives they are Determined to work hard and make the most of every training opportunity our program offers.

Charity is hearing impaired. She was a healthy child up until age seven, when she developed severe, recurring headaches. She was hospitalised for two months, during which time she lost her hearing completely.  Charity is the youngest child of a family of twelve, she has four brothers and seven sisters. Her father works as a casual field labourer, which is seasonal. Charity remembers her family having to survive on one modest meal a day or sometimes having to go without food altogether when no work was available.

For as long as Charity can remember her mother was ill, tragically passing away when she was just thirteen. Charity says, “life has not been easy, but I am coping. Being accepted into this program has been completely life changing. I had no idea I could learn a trade that I enjoy so much and be able to support myself when I graduate.”

ENJOY A SHORT VIDEO OF CHARITY, SOME OF HER FELLOW CLASSSMATES AND OUR VERY TALENTED AND AMAZING TEACHER MARTHA.

Your generous, ongoing support is helping young women like Charity achieve their dream of becoming independent. You are helping provide these young women with the ability to become self-sufficient and provide a better life for themselves and their families. We encourage you to consider starting a monthly recurring donation here.  Even a few dollars a month will go a long way.  Please also share this with your contacts and invite them to consider supporting this ongoing project.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at jenniferhughes@springsofhopefoundation.org
