New skills, new joys and maybe a new business

Decorating biscuits and laughing together
Decorating biscuits and laughing together

Despite lots of rainy weather, spring always seems to bring fresh hope and new ventures in our project. Recently one young mum started a new training course making jewellery, decorations for weddings and other handcrafts. She is really good at it and is hoping to start a business where she is able to work from home to take care of her baby and sell her work through social media. However, the staff keep buying all her beautiful jewellery so she doesn’t have any left to sell elsewhere!!

The ladies and kids are continuing with their psychology sessions, trainings, schooling and much more! They also learn a lot just from living together, including how to work together to take care of their children, each other and the house. Sometimes the center feels like one big family, with problems and joys like any other family! Recently Kosovo celebrated a festival and all the kids from the daily program arrived (uninvited!) to spend time with the staff and ladies in the center; we decorated biscuits, laughed and danced together.

Thank you so much for your support. It allows women who have experienced unimaginable violence to imagine and create a more joyful future for themselves and their children.
