Living and Working with Gratitude

Yedron, 32, came from a poor family. Now that she’s married and has two children who are both studying, she carries much of the responsibility of providing for the family since her husband cannot work due to health concerns. She used to work as a sanitation worker but had to quit as she had to take care of her husband at home.

When she learned about the Husky Energy Tailoring Skills Program for Women, she was filled with so much hope and eagerness. She wanted to enter the program with the hopes of learning a new skill and start her own business at home.

After completing her training and internship in 2019, Yedron started to make clothes in her home and sell them. This has now been their primary source of income. She is grateful to have been part of the training, which she said not only taught her technical skills but also helped build her confidence up.

“Thank you for changing my life. I now have a job of my own, and can save money for my family’s future. I will work hard, carrying this gratitude in my heart. Thank you,” Yedron said.

My name is Yeshi and I am 31 years old. I never had the opportunity to go to school. Together with my husband, we try our best to give our children a good future. Sometimes I can find temporary jobs and earn a little bit of money. With no education, it is not possible to secure a stable job where I can earn a decent income.
