"Life is not always pink." That's what we say in Vietnam. Because life isn't always happy and carefree. I know this is true. Because I have been there. I know that life isn't perfect. But we have to find a way to stand on our own two feet and be open to what life offers us.
When I started attending Hagar's programs in Vietnam, something changed. I learned that other women have stories too. I listened to them. And I knew I wasn't alone. I could look at each woman in the shelter and see them as sisters. We are walking this journey together.
Phuong has been employed at Hagar's enterprise partner, Joma Bakery Cafe, for three months and is supporting herself now.
