Meet WfWI Graduate Pashton

By Lyndsay Booth | Online and Multimedia Marketing Coordinator

Meet Pashton, a graduate of WfWI. During her year-long holistic training program with WfWI, Pashton learned new tailoring skills, allowing her to find a job after graduation so she could support her family.

Pashton is a 35 year old widow who lost her husband in the war. She is now the single mother of six children; three sons and three daughters. Before Pashton was busy as a tailor but experienced countless economic difficulties. Pashton was introduced to the Woman for Women office and now feels happy because she is once again an active woman in the community.

Pashton is working with the Safi Apparel Corporation and is discovering new tailoring skills. Pashton is very intelligent and a diligent worker. She is so thankful for Women for Women International. Pashton says "I had many difficulties and now by the grace of Allah have few. I am taking my 75 dollar salary from Safi Apparel Corporation in the merciful Allah because now my life condition is better then previous."

She is able to send her six children to school and is so grateful to WWI for providing her with this unprecedented opportunity of working at the Safi Apparel Corporation.
